Cheap flights to Zagreb
Described as a little Vienna, Croatia’s capital Zagreb is a mishmash of elegant Austro-Hungarian buildings and cobbled medieval streets just waiting to be explored. Often overlooked by tourists who prefer to sun themselves on Croatia’s stunning beaches,
Zagreb is a great choice for a city break destination with a difference. Think beautiful squares packed with Art Noveau and Baroque buildings, parks full of locals soaking up the summer sun and an atmosphere that combines a mix of Balkan and Central European cultures. And even though it has all the beauty of Prague and Budapest, it doesn’t quite have the reputation – yet – meaning you’ll be able to explore to your heart’s content, minus the tourist crowds.
Organic produce is big news in Croatia and the Natura Croatica foodie store takes provenance and quality very seriously in a country that is becoming a real foodie destination (8 Petra Preradevica, tel: 01 485 5076).
Trg Ban Jelacica, Zagreb's grand main square, is a great place for sitting in a cafe just taking in the buzz of the Croatian capital as commuters and trams zip by.
