Zagreb - Croatia’s buzzing capital
There is a temptation to view Croatia as no more than beach destination, but take a trip to this fascinating capital city and you will discover that there is much more to Croatia than sunny beaches. Zagreb has long occupied an important position in Central Europe, between Budapest, Vienna and Trieste, and its cobbled old town reflects a long and winding history. But history is not the only boast of a city break to Zagreb.

Explore the old and the new on a Zagreb City Break
Zagreb is historically interesting, with different styles of architecture and monuments, but it is also a city that is relevant today. Many popular artists such as U2, The Rolling Stones, Prodigy, Snoop Dogg and Lady Gaga have been or will be performing in the city, which has about 20 permanent or seasonal threatres and stages. Having a drink while enjoying live music is one of the favourite activities of Zagreb’s citizens; the town has a fair few music and film festivals over the course of the year and there are many smaller bars and nightclubs to be explored.

Throughout the city there are cafes offering al fresco dining, letting you eat your fill of Croatian cuisine (try the goulash!) while doing a spot of people-watching. There is an open-air farmers’ market at the weekends where you can try local specialities like spicy sausages and homemade cheeses, or if you are looking for something more relaxing the city has some top-notch green spaces. Maksimir Park with its beautiful woodlands and zoo is within the city limits, as is Lake Jarun where you can go for a dip and cool off in the summer heat. If you are feeling more adventurous, there are footpaths and hiking trails up Mount Medvednica which overlooks the city.
