Zagreb Travel Guide

Zagreb, the capital of Croatia, is a vibrant city of around a million people. The city boasts a charming medieval 'old city' with architecture and cobbled streets reminiscent of Vienna, Budapest, Prague and other Central-European capitals, though mixed with a strong Italian influence. Although the city is not as popular with tourists and travelers as the Dalmatian coast is, it still offers a few nice attractions that make it worthwhile to stop over for a few days.

Zagreb is divided into three major parts - the thousand-year old upper town which contains the Croatian historical gems, for instance Presidential Palace, the historic church of St. Mark's, the Croatian parliament, museums and galleries which are all situated in cobbled streets lit by gas lamps. The second part of the city is very well known as lower town which is very typical mainly for its cafes, restaurants, shops, theatres and parks. The last modern post-war part of Zagreb is full of high-rise modern buildings and complexes that in fact have nothing particular to offer.

One of the many pleasures you can enjoy is sitting in one of the numerous cafes, watching the world go by. Zagreb has a special charm and party travelers, will enjoy exploring the capital at night. The people are very friendly, the city is safe, accommodation will satisfy all demands and public transport can help you move around cheaply.You are also allowed to visit on of the numerous restaurants, sampling one of the delicious Croatian dishes, and finish the day in the one of the bars or clubs. Whatever you choose to do, you are guaranteed to have a good time!
