Zagreb Vacations

Although not as popular a tourist destination as the coastal destinations of Dubrovnik or Split, Zagreb, the political and cultural capital of Croatia, is still worth a visit.

offer a variety of European as well as international cuisines. In fact, one of the favorite pleasures of the Zagrebcani (the people of Zagreb) is sitting in one of the numerous cafes watching the world go by.

Zagreb things to do and experiences




If you’re dreaming about a summer spent dipping your toes in the Adriatic, unfortunately you’re not alone. Summer, specifically July and August, is peak tourist season on the coast and islands of Croatia, so ... Read more
though you’ll likely enjoy the nice weather, you’ll have to endure exorbitant hotel rates and crowds, crowds, crowds. Summer is better spent inland at cities like Zagreb, where you’ll encounter an entirely different story: fewer tourists, more bargains, and cooler temperatures. The coast is much more pleasant in late spring and early fall when air and water temperatures are still warm, but places are cheaper and less crowded. Winter is also not bad along the coast, though it gets cold and snowy inland.

Wonderful city full of like. The backpackers hostel that we went to was in the heart of the city and it was really easy to get around. We partied quite a bit here and it is a great city for backpacking

I like this city. It's the main city in Croatia but it's definitely less popular than Dubrovnik, Split and the coast side.
I loved it. I think it's underrated and you can a lot of amazing things to see here.
It's even better because it's not too crowded with tourists and you can actually enjoy. I definitely recommend it.


I absolutely love this city!
Zagreb is not popular among tourists like Split, Dubrovnik and so on, but it has it's perks.
Croatians love their city and I think that's really awesome.
There are lot of buildings and restaurants plus I loved the center of Zagreb, truly remarkable.
You should totally visit Zagreb as well, give this city a won't disappoint you.

I had to stop 1 night here before I catch my flight to Dubrovnik. So I say, lets explore! Walked everywhere around town and did my own walking tour with a guide book. Saw a lot of nice medieval looking places, St. Mark's Church and Zagreb Cathedral were my favorite!

Although it's not the first choice for most tourists to Croatia, Zagreb is the only place in the country I've been. I found it to be quite a pleasant city of fine buildings, parks, and numerous cafes. Considering the large size of the city, the people were friendly.

Most underrated city in Europe if you ask me. Zagreb citizens love their city...a few hours lingering in one of their famous street side cafes, and you will, too. Great museums everywhere.
