Croatia’s historic capital echoes with the romance of history and bloody wars, and is today a fascinating destination, combining the best of eastern and western Europe. As the political, economic and cultural capital, the city also combines energy and old-world charm. The Austro-Hungarian buildings in the town centre house elegant restaurants and fashionable boutiques along with noisy pubs and beer halls as well as hip clubs playing the latest music. The coastline is only three hours away, but Zagreb has plenty of attractions to offer, from the long, refreshing stretch of park that bisects the town centre to museums and mountain forts surrounding the town. Maksimir Park is a major destination for bikers, strollers and joggers while Jarun lake is where locals head to swim, boat and dance in a lakeside disco. An added bonus: It’s also a great shopping destination.
