Overview

Zagreb, Croatia’s capital and largest city.

Croatia’s capital and largest city, Zagreb is peppered with intricate Austro-Hungarian architecture, but its laid-back attitude is more in tune with its Mediterranean neighbours. The heady mix of café-culture, neo-Gothic cathedrals and medieval old town explains why Zagreb is known locally as Little Vienna.

About Croatia


Often in the shadows of the Croatian sea coast or touristic cities like Split or Dubrovnic, Zagreb should not be forgotten. Just for its historical center, this town holds the promise of an unforgettable journey.

With a rich medieval patrimony in and out of the city, including the cathedral, the Medvedgrad castle, or the St-Mark’s church, there are time travelling facilities everywhere. Enjoy the boiling life of the Dolac market, enter and discover countless shops, and do yourself the favour to taste the typical local dishes like the cottage cheese strudel or the traditional walnut rolls.

Situated in the middle of Europe, Zagreb displays many charms.

If you want to grab a bite, the Ban Josip Jelačić square will suit you. It is the main hub of social life in Zagreb with a large pedestrian zone and numerous cafés. Indeed the tradition of Zagreb’s coffee houses and cakeshops is long and rich. It is worth trying the Paprenjak (spiced biscuits) and the licitar (a heart-shaped biscuit) accompanied with Gvirc (a beverage made of wine and honey).

If Saturday is the third day, then lucky you! You’ll be able to join the locals, who every Saturday at about noon head to the centre of Zagreb. Why? Simply because it is the time and place to see and be seen! The ritual is more or less the same: coffee, newspaper reading and a tour of Dolac market. From fresh products, local specialities to fish and meat, everything is on display.
Of course before the market, don’t miss a visit of the Zagreb Cathedral. This magnificent neo-Gothic structure is 77 metres long and 50 metres wide, with bells solidly fixed at 108 metres high.
