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.
Hrelic, the city's largest flea market, is a Sunday-morning treat with everything imaginable on sale and a lot more besides! Expect lashings of local colour (8 Sajmisna Cesta).
The district of Kaptol is literally unmissable thanks to the vaulting spire of the city's landmark cathedral. There are winding cobbled streets, a section of the old city walls and a sprinkling of places to eat and drink as you go.
Centuries ago Gradec and Kaptol were two separate rival towns and their local youths used to regularly meet to battle each other in what is now Zagreb's city centre.
