Abstract

This thesis presents historical and geographical analysis of floods in the Zagreb area. During history, Zagreb has been affected by floods that were mainly caused by the Sava River and Medvednica's streams. The 1964 flood is being specially analysed because it represents the biggest natural catastrophe in the Zagreb area. The thesis explore connection between precipitation in the Zagreb area and discharge (and water level) of the Sava River and Medvednica's streams. The construction of the flood control and defence system began in the first decades of the 20th century. The most effective parts of the flood control system are Sava-Odra canal and retentions on Medvednica's streams. Despite big investments and constructions of the flood system, Zagreb is still not enough protected from high waters that emerge every year.
