    Zagreb – a brief overview

    Zagreb is an intriguing city. Often overlooked in favour of the postcard honeypots around the coast, Croatia’s capital is nevertheless somewhere with real visitor appeal. You can find a series of fine old-world buildings, a lively arts scene and a multi-layered character that draws on influences from both the Mediterranean and Eastern Europe.

    It’s been the hub of the nation ever since the Middle Ages and has the large squares and Habsburg architecture to show for it – as well as the odd high-rise suburb. But with its buzzing café culture and easy-going air, this is a city well worth getting to know.

    24 hours in Zagreb

    ListMap

    Zagreb has only been the capital of Croatia since 1991, and the country’s war of independence ended just a good 20 years ago. Given the circumstances, it is a small miracle that many parts of downtown Zagreb already once again resemble the charming mix of Budapest, Vienna and Prague it used to be.

    The city owes this renaissance to its 40 000 students – a good portion of the total population of just 800 000 – who shape the cityscape. A young and vibrant city, Zagreb also preserves its traditional coffeehouse culture and holds regular theater, film and chamber music festivals that attract an international audience.

    09:00 a.m.: The day begins at the Regent Esplanade Zagreb

    Mihanovićeva ulica 1

    The city’s top hotel, this is where the high society has always stayed and still comes to enjoy the plush opulence of the Art Nouveau architecture. Orson Welles and Josephine Baker count among the hotel’s past guests – along with everyone who traveled on the Orient Express and stopped over in Zagreb. Happily, this smart hotel is also within the reach of less well-heeled travelers these days.

    Room rates: start at approx. 100 euros for a double room

    10:00 a.m.: Zagrebačka uspinjača (the Funicular)

    There’s no getting around or past it, so why not start with it? A ride on the nostalgic cable car (built 1890) will take you from the lower town to the upper town for roughly 50 cents. The legendary funicular has tracks a mere 66 meters long to climb 30.5 vertical meters, making it the world’s shortest passenger cable car. It goes almost without saying that the Funicular has long been designated a cultural monument.

    The ride begins on Tomić Street in the Ilica pedestrian zone of the lower town (Donji Grad) and ends on Strossmayer Promenade in Zagreb’s upper town (Gornji Grad).

    10:30 a.m.: Gornji Grad

    The first stroll of the day for visitors in search of culture: Narrow streets await you in the upper town, many of them with cobblestones, elaborately restored Baroque and Wilhelminian buildings, churches and several museums. St. Mark’s Church with its beautiful Romanesque windows is the upper town’s landmark.

    High time for an incredibly delicious burger served in a former light-bulb factory. Zagreb is very much a city for meat eaters in any case, but these fantastic burger variations (costing between five and just under ten euros) enjoy cult status even among experts. The kitchen offers plenty of excellent options beyond the burger menu, though, and as an added bonus, Rougemarin serves some very good craft beer.

The name, Café Amélie, hints at what to expect here: It’s a bright, pretty place with a French feel to it and a vast selection of cakes, not to mention homemade jello, all served by friendly waitresses. Unbeatable in good weather: enjoying these culinary delights beneath the trees on the doorstep.

    Definitely one of the most whimsical museums in the world, it exhibits only authentic pieces contributed by ex-couples that are somehow connected to the failure of their romance – from axe to latex breasts. This unusual place was voted European Museum of the Year in 2011 – not least on the strength of the delightful descriptions accompanying the objects on show.

    Of the many coffeehouses in the city, the Cogito Coffee is far and away the best. This “ultra-cool Berlin-style café” (Lonely Planet) is not easy to find – but once you get there and sample the coffee – roasted on the premises – you’ll be in no hurry to leave.

    Don’t bother with food yet, just order a drink and warm up for the evening: The atmosphere here is upmarket with dimmed lighting and cool lounge music. If you want to visit the Glyptotheque belonging to the Croatian Academy of Arts and Sciences first, you won’t need to step outside the door because the ManO is part of it and – regardless of mealtimes – also a popular hangout of the Zagreb “in” crowd. Prices are a little above the average here, it’s true, but so is the quality of the food. It’s still early in the day, so after an hour here, we move on to the Boban…

    We find the popular Italian specialty restaurant belonging to former Croatian soccer star Zvonimir Boban tucked away in a pretty, vaulted brick cellar. Unfortunately, securing a table here can be difficult because the townsfolk adore this pasta temple.

Feasting is an integral part of the day and the traditional dishes include sauerkraut, corn paste (žganci), roast beef, turkey or goose. Doughnuts (krafne) satisfy any remaining appetites.

    Climate & best time to visit Croatia

    Croatia has a varied climate, with continental climate conditions inland and Mediterranean influence on the Adriatic coast. Peak season is July – August, with temperatures in the high 20s or in the 30s in places like Split, but you can expect plenty of sunshine from roughly May to October on the coast, and the shoulder seasons (May-June and September) are among the best times to visit Croatia. Inland is also hot in the summer but can be bitterly cold in the winter with sub-zero temperatures and heavy snowfall. Winter on the coast is milder but can be quite rainy.

    Mobile telephony and Internet
    Since June 2017, EU citizens traveling within the EU, and also in Iceland, Norway and Liechtenstein have been able to use their cell phones and surf the Net without incurring any extra charges: In other words, customers pay the same price for phone calls, text messages and data volume as they do at home. Restrictions do apply to the constant use of SIM cards abroad, however, and caps may be set on data packages. For full details, contact your mobile telephony provider in your country. Travelers using a SIM card from a non-EU state do not benefit from the new arrangement.

    Free Internet access via Wi-Fi is possible in many busy tourist spots. When using public Wi-Fi networks, it is a wise precaution to ensure encryption of all passwords, credit card details and banking TANs entered. Use of a VPN app or security software to check the safety of a hotspot is recommended.

    Shopping in Zagreb

    Key Areas

    The city centre has a decent selection of well-known brands, with good clothes shopping on Ulica Gundulićeva and Ulica Frankopanska, although it’s the long Ulica Ilica that’s widely considered the top retail street in Zagreb. A classic Croatian souvenir is a necktie – the cravat was invented here.

    Markets

    Dolac (Gornji Grad) is the central fresh produce market and makes for an absorbing spectacle, whether you’re there to buy or just take in the atmosphere. Elsewhere, the Hrelić Flea Market (Sajmišna) takes place on Wednesdays and Sundays and is the biggest such market in the city – expect vintage goods aplenty.

    Shopping Centres

    There are plenty of options here, with Centar Kaptol (Nova Ves 17) a solid choice – it’s got a fairly exclusive feel and plays home to some big-name international chains. Another to look out for is Importanne Centar (Trg Ante Starčevića 7), which was the first mall in the city and still draws large crowds.
