Flags of Zagreb County

Zagreb County (Croatian: Zagrebačka županija) is a county in central Croatia. It surrounds – but does not contain – the nation's capital Zagreb, which is a separate territorial unit. For that reason, it is often nicknamed "Zagreb ring". According to the 2011 census, the county has 317,606 inhabitants.

The Zagreb County once included the city of Zagreb, but in 1997 they separated, when the City was given a special status.[3] Although separated from Zagreb City County both administratively and territorially, it still remains closely linked with it.

Zagreb County borders on Krapina-Zagorje County, the city of Zagreb and Varaždin County in the north, Bjelovar-Bilogora County in the east, Sisak-Moslavina County in the south and Karlovac County in the southwest.
