Neighbourhood

Pogon is located in Staro Trnje (“Old“ Trnje), a blue-collar neighbourhood with a rich history of unrealized city plans. For this reason it is often perceived as a space scarcely touched by urbanization. However, the elderly residents see it as “Zagreb as it used to be“. Not waiting for the comprehensive solutions for this area, the former Jedinstvo factory imposed itself as the essential place for the creation and presentation of independent culture and youth, in which Močvara, Pogon and DB Indoš have operated for years. With its cultural activity, Pogon contributes to the development of the neighbourhood, at the same time trying to be a good neighbour and host to the residents of Staro Trnje.
