Zagreb - worth to be visited

  20 votes

Zagreb travelogue picture
Zagreb is the capital of Croatia and is nearly 1000 years old. It has influences from the Balkan, the Osmanli empire, the German empire, Italy and Austria (-Hungary) to which it once belonged.

Favourite spots:

The inner city is separated in two parts - the northern 'Gornij grad' and the southern 'Donji grad'.
In Donji Grad I like the huge underground shopping center - paradise for every girl with its hundreds little stores! It's called 'Importanne' and is directly at the train station.
The biggest and most central place in Zagreb is the Jelacic - place with a big statue of a horseman called Jelacic. Very impressing!
From there you can go for a walk up to Gornij grad. There are some beautiful churches and many cafes to be visited - just enjoy the atmosphere! (And when you like markets, don't miss a visit to the 'Dolac'.)

What's really great:

Zagreb offers culture, atmosphere and entertainment as well, so there is much to discover. Something funny: There is a tower ('Lotrscak') that fires a canonball every day at 12 o' clock. First time I got a little shock!

There are many. And they're all very cosy, so you just can't do wrong.

The cevapcici's are best not in expensive restaurants but in the little grills at any corner.
And I highly recommend the numerous confectionery-cafes where you can enjoy your coffee with a yummy cream-cake.

Other recommendations:
If you like ice skating, you could visit the outdoor ice skating installation. But it's often very crowded.

Very nice report indeed! Seems like a laid-back place where one can really relax. Also liked the report for it being so concise and yet so informative. Must visit.
By the way what is cevapcici?

Hello Kerstin,

nice article on Zagreb! I have been pretty often in Croatia when I used to be little. My Mum is from a town close to Slv. Pozega. Didn't know that there are such cool places there. Guess I have to go for a visit and check out those "new" spots :-) Would be great to read more on Croatia and see some more pics. Let me know when you publish more, so I can have a look on it.

Have a great day!
