The Embassy of Canada to Croatia in Zagreb is the diplomatic mission of Canada to Croatia. This embassy also represents Canadian diplomatic relations with Kosovo.[1] Visas for immigration to Canada are not processed in Zagreb, as they are processed at the Visa Section of the Embassy of Canada to Austria in Vienna.[2]

Building[edit]

The building in which the embassy is located is rented from the Serbian orthodox Metropolitanate of Zagreb and Ljubljana.[3] The building was built between 1886 and 1887, and it was architecturally designed by Kuno Vajdman.[3]

By the beginning of the War in Croatia, the building was the seat of the metropolitanate and its museum, archive and library.[3] On April 11, 1992, the building was dynamited, after which the seat of the metropolitanate was moved to another building.[3] After the metropolitanate restored the building, they rented it to the embassy.[3]
