One Day Only – Zagreb, Croatia

Croatia, Zagreb Guide (B): One Day Only – Zagreb, Croatia

Let’s be honest – Zagreb, the capital of Croatia, wasn’t on our bucket list and we didn’t know much about the city before. Even during our road trip in Croatia, when we explored mainly the country’s coast, we still weren’t sure if Zagreb was worth the detour. But in the end, we decided to stop there on the way from Dubrovnik back to Prague, where we currently live, to break the journey.

Now we know – Zagreb is definitely worth a trip! Zagreb is such an interesting city – still not as well known as other capitals in Europe and therefore not as crowded, which is a huge plus these days when overtourism is being discussed a lot. It’s not big and most of the city centre can be explored in a day, so it’s great for those quick city breaks over the weekend. This is our take on how to spend a perfect day in Zagreb.

Spring and autumn are the best times to go because the weather is the most pleasant for exploring the city’s streets and green spaces. You can still enjoy Zagreb during summer or winter but you will need to deal with the heat or the cold – however, this can be easily done in local museums, galleries, restaurants, cafes or shops. We visited Zagreb in September and the weather was nice and not too hot – great for walking around the city all day long. ......
