Description The Czechoslovak-South Slavic league (established in 1921) played a significant role within the Czechoslovak-Yugoslav relations during the interwar period and so did the Union of South Slavic-Czechoslovak Leagues (established in 1925) in Yugoslavia. The aim of the paper is to map the mutual relations set up in Zagreb through a local league and to describe the activities as well as importance of this association which worked on the convergence and strengthening the cultural as well as economic reciprocity between Yugoslavia and Czechoslovakia in Zagreb. Initially, the activities had a manifestation character, later they were more organized. In the following decades, the league became an important part of public life in Zagreb and its surroundings—courses of Czech language, various lectures, theatre and singing performances, celebrations and other cultural events, the league started to publish its own magazine, a library was founded in addition to a reading room and it actively cooperated with other associations (Česká beseda, Československá obec). The collaboration resulted in the building of a Czechoslovak house in Zagreb.
