Imagine a surprise box, with a heart on top instead of a bow, which when opened provides precious inspiration by walking through the beautiful parks, perfectly linked with fountains, public squares and museums and towers and castles arising in the background. It is a city of Zagreb.

6 must visit points in Zagreb

Dolac Market

Mamas corner beauty and kids bar

1. The starting point of any sightseeing tour of Zagreb simply must be the square Ban Josip Jelacic. On the one side it’s dominated by a statue of Ban Jelacic, while on the other you can find out how the city got its name, neither more nor less than after the fountain and the legend about a girl who came to fetch (Croatian word “zagrabi”) water from it.

A little further off, at the Dolac market, you can buy various homemade produce from the “kumice”.

Kumice are women from surrounding areas who grow their own fruit and vegetables or make homemade cheese and cream which they sell at the market place.

2.Whether it’s clear or overcast in Zagreb, you can always see the Cathedral of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, which together with Kaptol Square you must not miss.

The cathedral was a small church at the time of its construction between the 9th and 10th century but through the ages, after many reconstruction, it was adorned by tall towers and imposing clocks of bronze and brass, weighing 8 tons.

3. To make a tour of the Upper City you have to climb up there first and what better way to do that than by cable car. This track, the shortest cable railroad in the world, running only 66 meters in length, will bring you right to the foot of the Lotrscak Tower.

In the heart of the Upper City there is a square and St. Mark’s Church whose organs you need to hear and picture of colored tiles and coats of arms on the roof you will certainly remember.

Immediately next to it stands Banski dvorovi (the court of the ban), the present-day seat of the Croatian Government.

Church St. Mark4. For art lovers, Zagreb has in its offer some fifty museums and galleries. The cities’ main museums can all be reached on foot: the Mimira Museum, the Ethnographic Museum, and the Museum of Arts and Crafts.

Here, in the midst of green parks, you will also find the Croatian National Museum, the Academy of Dramatic Arts, and Zagreb University.

5. The road away from the maddening city crowd leads to Maksimir Park. The park consists of a long walking lane, lush grassy areas, forests, avenues and ponds.

A 17 meter high viewpoint is located in the center of the park, with a lovely view of the entire park and its biggest attraction, the Zoo.

6. Is there a capital where you will find islands – as many as six of them? Yes, in Zagreb, on Lake Jarun.

This complex of interconnected lakes and neat paths and promenades is a favorite spot not only for daytime recreation but also for night life.
