To really fall in love with Zagreb, it’s necessary to take walk through the Old Town and winding streets. Take a leisurely stroll in the direction of Tkalčićeva Street. This is where you will discover Zagreb’s little gems that are off the general tourist maps. Stop for coffee or lunch in one of the charming cafes and eateries that are frequented by the locals. After dark, Tkalčićeva Street takes on a romantic vibe.
The Cathedral of Zagreb
The Roman Catholic Cathedral of Zagreb is the tallest building in Croatia. Its elegant spires can be viewed from many locations around the city. Inside there is a sculpture by Croatia’s most famous artist, Ivan Meštrović.
The Museum Of Broken Relationships
Unlike most museums that are filled with ancient or collectable artifacts, the award-winning Museum of Broken Relationships houses a collection of personal trinkets that are reminders of failed relationships. The museum is situated in the Upper Town. As you browse the items, you’ll feel connected to the person who had their heart broken. Thanks to the Museum and Ana Opalic for the use of their images.
St. Mark’s Church
Whilst the inside of St. Mark’s Church may appear to be fairly standard as small churches go, its roof is a visual masterpiece. The roof proudly displays heraldic shields of the White Castle (Zagreb’s coat of arms) and the national coat of arms of red, white and blue tiles.
