Novi Zagreb (literally "New Zagreb") is the part of the city of Zagreb located south of the Sava river, on the way from the Pleso airport to the city center. Novi Zagreb forms a distinct whole because it is separated from the northern part of the city both by the river and by the levees around Sava.
It is mostly residential, consisting of blocks of flats and tower blocks that were built during the Socialist era (1945–1990). Although it is not as prestigious as downtown Zagreb, it has recently been praised for its good road network and abundance of parks.
It is formed by two administrative city districts ('četvrti'): Novi Zagreb - istok (Novi Zagreb - East) and Novi Zagreb - zapad (Novi Zagreb - West).
