The official presence of the United States in Croatia began with the establishment of the U.S. Consulate in Zagreb on May 9, 1946, in offices on Kumiciceva Street. In 1951, the U.S. Consulate moved to Hebrangova 2, and remained there for the next fifty years. The Consulate gained the status of Consulate General on August 1, 1958. On August 25, 1992, the Consulate General became an Embassy after the establishment of diplomatic relations between the United States of America and the new Republic of Croatia. On June 2, 2003, the U.S. Embassy moved to its new location in Buzin.
The Embassy is committed to minimizing our impact on the environment, with green building practices and environmental programs. We are a charter member of the League of Green Embassies, as well as a founding member of the Zagreb Green Building Council or Savjet za zelenu gradnju u Hrvatskoj. We support a wide range of recycling, energy and water use reduction programs.
The Embassy also sponsors American Corners at libraries in Osijek, Rijeka, Zadar, Zagreb and Vukovar. American Corners serve as resource centers for information and programs highlighting American experiences, culture, history and current events. American Corners host discussion groups, seminars, exhibits, and meetings on a range of U.S.-Croatia focused topics. The Corners provide literature, multimedia content, online resources and other educational materials.
