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.
Croatia's food and drink larder is justly renowned around the world these days. Find out exactly why at foodie emporium Natura Croatica, which stocks a great range of organic produce (8 Preradovi?eva, naturacroatica.com).
Zagreb's Lower Town is a stately grid-like oasis lined with grand, Austro-Hungarian-era buildings, green parks and gardens, making it ideal for a winter stroll, especially if there's snow on the ground.
The skiing in Zagreb is so good that it produced an Olympic champion. Yes, the golden girl of Croatian skiing, Janica Kostelic, learned the ropes at Medvednica, just outside the city. zagreb-touristinfo.hr
