Remetinec prison

Remetinec prison (officially Prison in Zagreb, Croatian: Zatvor u Zagrebu) is a closed-type prison located in the Remetinec neighborhood of Zagreb, Croatia.

The prison's capacity is 560 inmates, making it the largest prison in Croatia. In July 2012 it housed 904 prisoners and detainees, up from 850 in March 2009. The prison's overcrowding problem is also a major problem of the Croatian prison system in general. Poor living conditions led to a prisoners' hunger strike in May 2008. A planned expansion that will add 340 beds is financed by the Council of Europe Development Bank, and was in documentation stage as of June 2010.
