Zagreb

Zagreb is the capital and biggest city in Croatia. The cultural and economic hub of the country boasts Austro-Hungarian heritage, and impressive landmark attractions that date back centuries. The city centre is adorned with stunning classicist and secessionist facades and beautiful green parks. On every street corner there is a museum, gallery, theatre or elegant restaurant. If you’re a history lover, Zagreb features a wealth of attractions to interest and entertain you. There are more museums in the city than in any other city in the world.

Situated in the heart of Zagreb is the historic Old Town, which is divided into two halves – Gornji (Upper Town) and Donji Grad (Lower Town). On a tour of the Upper Town, admire the magnificent Gothic architecture of the twin-spire Zagreb Cathedral and the charming and iconic 13th century church of St Mark. In the Lower Town, head for the main square of Ban Jelacic and soak up the vibe as you relax and watch the world go by. The pedestrianised zone of Tkalčićeva Street is lined with chic alfresco coffee bars, shops and restaurants.

Zagreb is the perfect destination for a weekend city break or a vacation that combines visits to other places. Its prime location and transport links makes it easy to access sights that are situated a little off the beaten track. If you prefer to stay in the city, Zagreb offers a diverse variety of entertainment options that you can enjoy throughout the day. Visit the museums, galleries and historic landmarks, enjoy lunch in a stylish restaurant, and venture to the shopping district for some retail therapy. You have the entire evening to explore the city’s cultural attractions, to visit the vibrant bars, and to enjoy the authentic Croatian cuisine that is served in the popular local restaurants.
