Abstract

City of Zagreb as the capital of Croatia and a strong work center is the most attractive in the country and therefore people move here for decades. After World War II, cities have become destinations of strong migration of rural population, which in the 1960's and early 1970's developed into a rural exodus and therefore in the period 1961.-1971. recorded the largest absolute increase in population. In the early 1960's appear suburbanization phenomenon which in 1970's increased decentralization of some municipal services. With that comes an increase in the value of suburban areas. In the beginning of the 1980's ends demographic transition so birth rates start to fall and migration are becoming more important because the majority of the population is growing only by mehanical inflow. Ten years later starts the Serbian aggresion on Croatia which additionaly changes the demographic picture of Zagreb area.
