14 Main Attractions and Museums in Zagreb

Croatia, Zagreb Guide (B): 14 Main Attractions and Museums in Zagreb

I don't think Z-town is making anyone's "Top 10" list of anything anytime soon, but if you've got a spare couple of days, Zagreb is sure to provide a really great experience!

I will have another post about Zagreb and how wonderful it was to me later this summer. Until then, here are the bones of the city, all within easy walking distances and passing tons of delicious meal and snack options.

The best vantage point to start a tour around Zagreb is for sure at Lotrscak Tower. You can climb up to the tower or take the funicular train. Either way, once you're there, pay the cheap entrance fee to make your way up the stairs inside the tower to the top. Every landing area has another set of historical placards and opens the history of Zagreb from the top of the city.

Turning the corner from the tower, you'll arrive at the Museum of Broken Relationships. This. Is. An. Extremely. Emotional. Experience. It's wild, it's tragic, it's hilarious, it's ironic, and I've never been to a museum this interesting. I thought it would be really kitschy and pathetic (like, "Boo-hoo, my ex was mean!"), but instead it was a very real and very deep dialogue from real people who went through any and every kind of broken relationship: romantic, familial, friendship, death, you name it. I think the "artifacts" may rotate often, but, if you go, take a moment at the life-size real door with notes on it. I wish this was some kind of tradition in every culture. ......
