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.
If your thoughts are already turning to Christmas, head to Croata boutique for a great selection of quality ties. You're in the right place as the tie was invented in Croatia (13 Kaptol).
Trg Ban Jelacica Zagreb's lifeblood main square is the ideal place to kick back in a cafe and watch the world and the local trams zip by, with plenty of shops around to explore afterwards.
The historic Croatian city of Karlovac is less than an hour away by motorway, but it offers a real insight into the 1990s war with the scars of conflict still very visible as it struggles back to prosperity.
