City breaks trip

Weekend in Zagreb, Central European metropolis

Cosmopolitan and alternative, a mix of Austro-Hungarian and socialist architecture, street art and urban construction, Zagreb is a great idea for the weekend and a must-see destination of the Central Europe.

You can hear quite often that Zagreb is a tailor-made; not too big, not too small, offering the feeling of a European metropolis, while remaining small enough to be covered on foot. Visitors enjoy a baroque-like feeling of the Upper Town, Dolac, the lively and the largest city open-air market, green parks and promenades, top culinary pleasures and a relaxing atmosphere.

Activities are taking place in Zagreb

One of the most prestigious travel guides, Lonely Planet, listed Zagreb on top of the most desirable and exciting European destinations to be visited.

The only capital in the world hosting the ski world cup, Zagreb is 900-year-old city situated under the hills of Medvednica and at the banks of the Sava river. It holds many museums, galleries, theatres, restaurants and cafés, many green areas, viewpoints and places to stroll around. Regardless of its abrupt growth, it has preserved the Austro-Hungarian attribute and so became an ideal coulisse to sip coffee on its beautiful squares.

Nowhere is coffee culture so strong, so obvious, so important as it is in Zagreb.

To have a coffee on Saturday morning in Zagreb is a custom of locals and a “must-do” thing. On the so-called Špica (the rush hour), the locals come to the centre of the city to drink coffee in one of the bars in Bogovićeva or Tkalčićeva Street.

You can walk the entire city of Zagreb without ever needing a car, but if you get tired, you can take a tram: they are very functional and of beautiful blue. The cabs are pretty cheap, too. You will love walking everywhere, and in Zagreb centre, you will never miss driving, not for a minute.

Day-by-day itinerary

Day 1

Check in and dinner in a downtown restaurant

Arrive to Zagreb and get check in at the hotel, which is located in the centre of the city. You’ll have plenty of free time before dinner, so we recommend that you take a stroll in the neighbourhood and get your own first impressions of Zagreb.

Dinner will be at one of the well-known national restaurants downtown, where you will taste some of the traditional meals of the region.

Day 2

Guided tour of Zagreb

Have breakfast at the hotel and take off on a private guided walking sightseeing tour of Zagreb.

In about two hours stroll, you get to learn all about the history, architecture and traditions of Zagreb. See the gothic church of St. Marco, Lotrščak tower, Stone Gate and Cathedral of Zagreb. You will also visit the colourful “belly” of Zagreb – Dolac farmers market, the largest and the most known of the 28 city markets. At the end of the tour, we take you to Zagreb City Museum founded by the Brethren of the Croatian Dragon in 1907.

Day 3

View from the top of Zagreb's skyscraper – Zagreb 360°

Breakfast and check-out from the hotel. If you have a minute to spare on another coffee and sightseeing, visit the Zagreb Eye Viewpoint 360° nearby and get one last good look at Zagreb.
