ZAGREB

Zagreb is an old Central European city. For centuries it has been a focal point of culture and science, and now of commerce and industry as well. It lies on the intersection of important routes between the Adriatic coast and Central Europe. Zagreb can offer its visitors the Baroque atmosphere of the Upper Town, picturesqueopen-air markets, diverse shopping facilities, an abundant selection of crafts and a choice vernacular cuisine. In spite of the rapid development of the economy and transportation, it has retained its charm, and a relaxed feeling that makes it a genuinely human city.

Zagreb Attractions

ATTRACTIONS

Walking is one of the best ways to explore all of Zagreb’s picturesque historical sites, hidden alleys & lanes and especially the main square in the city. You can learn more about the neighbourhood on these walking tours as well as discover the main sights and attractions at your own pace.

The centre of Zagreb is divided into two parts: Gornji Grad (Upper Town) and Donji Grad (Lower Town). Because of its historical structures, churches and religious monuments, Gornji Grad has great historic value attached to it and is literally a tourist’s paradise. Donji Grad, on the other hand, mostly contains shops, cafes, museums, and parks. Some attractions that are far away from the city are easily accessible by bus or  tram.

Zagreb Nightlife

NIGHTLIFE

For a city that feels small – its vibe is maybe more that of a big town rather than a city – you’ll find plenty of ways to get into a little good-natured trouble until the wee hours of the morning. Within striking distance from the main square, you’ll find mid-sized venues for bands to play, and a smattering of clubs and DJ bars.

Otherwise, it’s a question of going further afield – there is a cluster of clubs around around Lake Jarun, and a clutch of niche clubbing venues that lie a short taxi ride west of the centre. Admission prices are generally 20kn-60kn. In most cases, dress codes are casual, but be aware that there are several clubs – Gallery, the most notable instance – where smart wear (no trainers) is the rule.
