Visit Zagreb - Best of Zagreb

Zagreb isn’t the first name in people’s lips when speaking about Croatian destinations, but that’s just unfair to this beautiful city. With a warren like maze of roads, a beautiful millennium old historical district and some really cool museums, Zagreb in the summer is inviting enough. In the winter though, this Croatian destination turns into Ski Central, a major landing spot for all those want to take on the hills and mountains nearby. And if in that endeavour they happen to accidently fall I love with the town, well that’s good for everybody.
