Zagreb is the capitol of Croatia. It is well connected with the rest of Europe. For the foreigners the city is interesting for its historical sites, good food, proximity to winter resort (Sljeme) while the coast is only 160 km away (Rijeka).
Shopping is good but nothing special and prices are not always attractive. Shopping centers are, as in the majority of cities, numerous. Safety is usually good, but it is advisable to stay alert.
Zagreb is pretty safe. Most of older generation don't speak English yet they r friendly. U can bargain for souvenirs in stalls in market but not from souvenir shop.
Zagreb was a wonderful surprise on our trip. It was a clean, friendly city, not too busy with lots to see and do and everything within easy access.
We wished we had had longer here than our 2 nights. Make sure you go to the Regent Esplanade hotel and visit the cute botanical gardens nearby.
Zagreb is such a lovely city. It's our first time visiting Zagreb and we picked the place for our pre-wedding photo shoot.
We walked around the city streets for photo shoot and saw this lovely book store with circle stair case. So we went inside the shop and took a few photos from across the street into the shop. The store owner saw us and invited us to stay for a cup of coffee. The people there are all so friendly and welcoming. SMILE
Take a look at the concerts calendar before arriving; there are usually great artist performing during the summer.
Zagreb is a wonderful city, full of history and charm. The atmosphere is vibrant and the shopping is fabulous.
There are lots of cafes and wonderful places to eat and it is terrific to sit in the sun in one of the many cafes and drink coffee and soak up the atmosphere and do some people watching. Lots of beautifully dressed people wandering sbout. Lots to look at.We loved it.
This city is a treasure-trove of cultural sites, fine restaurants, superb coffee shops, welcoming people.
