53.3 km NE of epicenter [Map] / Very weak shaking (MMI II) : It must have been stronger because here in Bjelovar we don't usually feel quakes under 4. My chair slightly shook. (reported through our app)  
Zagreb downtown / Light shaking (MMI IV) / horizontal (sideways) swinging / 2-5 s : I was lying in bed but not asleep, it lasted about 5 seconds. I felt above all with my legs that it was making small horizontal movements back and forth. I heard one wall (old building) slightly creaking just before it started to shake.
