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.

Shopping


Natura Croatica - Croatia has real foodie kudos these days and if you want to snare some quality local food and drink then this is the deliciously tempting place to head. www.naturacroatica.com


Croata - The Croats are said to have invited the tie and this is the best place in town to pick up a smooth silk tie to impress your friends with back home. Kaptol 13. Tel. 01-4814 600


Head to Hrelic - Zagreb's largest flea market is a feast for the senses and real window into local life. Great for unusual souvenirs.


Natura Croatica. Croatia boasts a superb food and drink scene, and provenance is a serious business. Head here for natural/organic goodies that make for an ideal picnic (Preradovi?eva ul. 8, tel 01 485 5076).

Sightseeing


Trg Ban Jelacica - This lavish public square is at the heart of the Croatian capital physically, but also both psychologically and spiritually. A great place to recline in spring with a proper bijela kava (milky coffee).

Key Areas


Lower Town - This graceful oasis of parks and cultural institutions looks its best in winter with a dusting of snow giving it a fairy-tale quality.


Upper Town - This cobbled oasis of baroque beauty is awash with museums, cafes and restaurants. Save plenty of time for exploring and don't miss the Museum of Broken Relationships, guaranteed to make you laugh and cry.


Trg Ban Jelacica - The city's main square is a great place to just relax and take Zagreb's pulse, so recline in a pavement café and watch the crowds breeze on and off the busy trams. The main tourist office is handily here too.

Day Trips


Hit the Slopes - Zagreb is lucky to have superb skiing right on its doorstep in the form of mighty Mount Medvednica.


Samobar - A short bus ride will bring you to this sleepy slice of country life. The village architecture is pleasingly historic and in the local cafes the famous kremsnita cream cake awaits.


Mount Medvednica - In Winter it's all about the skiing, but autumn sees hikers and mountain bikers enjoy gorgeous seasonal colours as they bash around the slopes of Zagreb's mountain. Epic views too.


You won't see much evidence of the 1990s war in Zagreb, but head south down the motorway to Karlovac and the scars are all too evident. Nearby Turanj has the country's most striking war museum.
