Tourist information

Even though it’s the capital of Croatia, Zagreb is from time to time overlooked as a vacation destination by travelers to the country, which is a real shame, because it has much to provide! Sure, it doesn’t have the ocean or sandy beaches, although it has a number of fine landmarks, a number of dining establishments, cafeterias and clubs, tons of enjoyment and typical events, a monumental variety of accommodation (lots of budget hostels and private apartments), some good shopping malls and is quite simple to reach from elsewhere in Europe. Those other favourite Cental European towns – Bratislava, Prague, Ljubljana and Budapest – have a powerful competitor!

Visually, Zagreb is a blend of straight-laced Austro-Hungarian architecture and rough-around-the-edges socialist constructions, its character a sometimes uneasy fusion of the two elements. This little metropolitan area is made for roaming the roads, drinking coffee in the permanently full cafeterias, popping into art galleries and museums, and savoring the theatres, performances and cinema. It’s a year-round outdoor town: in early spring and summer months everyone scurries to Jarun Lake in the south west to swim or sail, or dance the evening away at lakeside clubs, while in fall and winter months citizens go snow skiing at Mountain Medvednica (only a tram ride away) or treking in close by town of Samobor.

When to visit Zagreb

As a vibrant town, Zagreb has a wide range of adventures, events and pleasures all year round. There is no "wrong season" to visit Zagreb; each season has its pleasures. Summer months are hardly stifling and is a exceptional time to enjoy Zagreb's parklands. The town empties out in July and August, because inhabitants head to the coastline and islands. The lack of cramped trams can be relaxing although dining establishments and cafeterias may be sealed and night life comes to a halt. The season gears up in fall with a full menu of performances, exhibitions and special manifestations. As the leaves slowly turn color and the air grows chillier, Zagreb acquires a melancholy air. Cold winter months temperature levels make it the perfect time to duck into a comfortable coffee building and linger over very warm chocolate. In early spring, cafe life blossoms as everyone heads outside for lunch on a outdoors terrace or an after-work drink on among the town's incomparable plazas.
