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.
Hreli?, the city's largest flea market, is worth visiting for the insight into local life it offers even if you don't buy anything. Sunday mornings only (8 Sajmina Cesta).
Upper Town, the city's most historic quarter, is a ramble of cobbles and church spires, not to mention the odd museum, café, bar and restaurant. Great views of the city too.
