Wonderful Zagreb, Croatia: Travel Guide, Roundup & more!

Here it is! In this roundup I’ve gathered everything that I’ve posted about Zagreb on the blog, practical advice for traveling to Zagreb, and my Wonder & Sundry Guide to Zagreb, Croatia, which has everything, and I mean everything, I loved from my month in the city. Let’s go to Zagreb!

You’re going to love Zagreb!

Get a whole new perspective on Croatia by visiting its capital city Zagreb. The union of two medieval towns has grown into a vibrant city marked by grand squares, charming medieval buildings, and Austro-Hungarian architecture. A world away from coastal Croatia, Zagreb moves with a different energy, faster. I loved it, and I believe you will, too.

What I loved about Zagreb

I spent a month in Zagreb as the last leg of a three-month journey in the Balkans, where I stayed mostly on the coast of the Adriatic. I fell in love with Zagreb’s bustle, its beautiful parks, and even its old creepiness. You can and must sit in cafés for hours, experience the city’s vibrant festivals, and eat until you can eat no more—Zagreb’s fare is hearty.

Zagreb invites wandering

Zagreb invites wandering, whether through the Green Horseshoe and other parks, the winding streets of Upper Town, or up and down staircases that take you someplace interesting and unexpected. And when you can’t wander anymore, never fret. This is a city with a great public transit system and easy access to ride sharing. You can even take the world’s shortest funicular up to the top of the hill if looking up at it fills your heart with sadness.
