Croatia and its capital Zagreb were the fourth stop on Christa Klickermann's European journey. Lavender blossom in Hvar, the picturesque ancient towns of Rovinj, Opatja, Split, Porec and Dubrovnik, the picture-perfect fishing villages of Rastoke and Trogir, along with secluded beauty on the island of St Andrea - the Hamburg-based Austrian had visited Croatia's stunning towns, as well as its romantic islands and bays, countless times in the past. The country's capital Zagreb, on the other hand, was uncharted territory. Would she be just as pleasantly surprised by the capital as she was by Croatia and the Croats on her previous visits? Or would her journey to the country's interior lead to grey and outdated Eastern Bloc charm and the decaying relics of unimaginative socialist town planners? When her local bookshop owner in Bavaria tells her they don't stock any travel guides for Zagreb because 'no one goes there', Christa is both surprised and unsettled. But the capital of the 28th and newest member state of the EU is a surprise package. Instead of monochrome Eastern Bloc charm, she encounters a young, diverse city that is well on its way to becoming a modern, European capital, along with people who know that maintaining close ties to their families, culture and their natural treasures is precisely what makes them special.

Christa Klickermann has always been passionate about building good relationships both at work and in her private life. For 25 years, she worked on forming effective partnerships with her business clients during her time as a freelance marketing consultant in the field of customer management. Away from work, the 58-year-old Austrian has been happily married for 37 years and is mother to three grown-up children, as well as being a grandmother. In 2012 she said goodbye to her career and fulfilled a long-held dream by moving with her husband from Bavaria to the very north of Germany. She now lives and works in Hamburg as a freelance author, speaker and blogger. On her travels, in her Europeans at Heart book series and in her intercultural panel sessions/readings, she tries to gain a closer understanding of people and their cultures, whilst promoting a peaceful and humane Europe.
