This underrated city in central Croatia makes for a city break like no other. A picture-perfect place made for scenic strolls, you’ll get a real insight into all that Croatia has to offer, without the hustle and bustle of the usual touristy spots.
You’re a way away from Croatia’s shimmering coast, but that doesn’t mean Zagreb is any less beautiful. You’ll be taken aback by how lush and green this city is, with pretty parks popping up on every corner, and a cute cafe culture to match.
There’s over 30 picturesque parks spread out across the city, one of the most popular being the Lenuzzi Horseshoe or the Green Horseshoe – an amazing seven squares which beautifully frame the downtown area, with their grassy areas forming a perfect U.
You’ll find this the perfect spot to grab a seat at one of the many cafes, sit back, and take in the scenes around you. From live street performers to perfect people-watching opportunities, this vibrant city always has so much going on.
Over in the upper town area you’ll find the Zagreb Cathedral standing tall and proud, its Gothic twin spires piercing the sky, surrounded by red-tiled roofs. Nearby is the 13th century St. Mark’s Church, with a unique and colourful roof of its own! Quite simply, this city looks like it was plucked out of a fairytale – and you’ll fall in love with it with each and every step.
