The aim of this thesis is to inquire into the special relationship between the city of Zagreb and the river Sava, with an emphasis on the year 1964 when a catastrophic flood occurred in Zagreb and engulfed most areas around the river bank. This crucial event encouraged people to start thinking more seriously about regulating the flow of the river Sava. In the following decades, experts tried to find the most effective and multifunctional solution for the regulation of the river, which would offer answers to the questions of flood control, source water protection and urban development plans for the area surrounding the river. A brief overview of the urban and architectural solutions done to this day, shows that there are two different outlooks on the relationship between the city of Zagreb and the river Sava: A. regarding Sava as an urban city centre in Zagreb and B. regarding Sava, as a separate green patch of land between the old and the new part of the city, next to Zagreb. One of the main questions of this thesis deals with how residents who live in the proximity of the river and experts who participated in making programmes and case studies concerning the development of the river, perceive Sava today. The results of the semi-structured interviews show that most participants do not perceive the river Sava as being at a high risk of flooding, while the experts put an emphasis on the risk of drying of the underground fresh water supplies, which are endangered because of the anthropogenic and climate factors affecting the river system. The results also show that most participants understand the potential of the development of the river Sava, which can improve the everyday contact of the residents with the river through various interventions, while maintaining a particular emphasis on the public and recreational function of the area.
