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


Hrelic - Zagreb's largest flea market is as much an anthropological experience as a retail one. Prepare for your senses to be assaulted. Sunday mornings only (Sajmisna Cesta 8).


Croata - Did you know Croatia invented the tie? They will delight in telling you all about the creation of the tie here as they sell you a nice silk one. www.croata.hr


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

Sightseeing


Tkalciceva - In summer this picturesque central lane welcomes a sweep of pavement cafes bedecked with pavement tables. Sit and just let the world go by.


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 central urban quarter reclines with grand neoclassical architecture, leafy parks and esteemed cultural institutions. Grab a coffee, recline on a park bench and take it all in.


Upper Town - This grand medieval and baroque quarter overflows with historical buildings, museums, churches and galleries. There are sweeping views out over the city too. Plenty of cafes on hand too.


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.

Day Trips


Mount Medvednica - If you're lucky there may be early snow so you can hit the slopes. Otherwise this green oasis just outside the city is alive with walking trails. Just a bus ride away from the centre.


Karlovac - Take the train south to the old 1990s frontline and help a city still struggling to get back on its feet since the Homeland War. Known as the city of parks, there are also some lovely rivers.


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.
