Cirilometodskaulica 2, 10000, Zagreb, Croatia
09:00 am - 09:00 pm
This is just rad! What a concept! Originally a travelling exhibit, this museum is a like a morbid tribute to romance, sort of like what zombies are to living humans. Two Zagreb residents who’d been in love asked their friends (as a joke at first) to contribute memorabilia from their broken relationships. The idea snowballed into a successful ...

Trg Svetog Marka 5, 10000, Zagreb, Croatia
07:30 am - 06:00 pm
Deceptively understated to look at, this church actually houses some prominent treasures. Chief among these are the south portal by the Parler family of sculptors from Prague a brilliant gothic portal of 15 effigies in eleven niches. Approaching the roof from the square, you’ll see the coat of arms of the Triune Kingdom and for Zagreb city it...

Kaptol 31, Zagreb, Croatia
10:00 am - 05:00 pm
This building simply imoses its presence on all those who stand before it – as it well should; it’s the tallest building in the country. The original cathedral here was built in 1093 but it was destroyed a litte of 200 years later by the Tatars. It was built up again only to be destroyed by the 1880 Zreb earthquaker one which damaged a ...

Jarun, Zagreb, Croatia
An incredibly popular hangout with the locals, the lake offers up a plethora of fun (at least, by the standards of Zagreb). Walk, jog, picnic, roller-skate or skateboard that’s the surface of it all. The lake itself is a poplar windsurfing venue; there are spectator stands from which viewers can watch rowing races; pebble beaches surrounding ...

Ljudevit Gaj, a major Croatian linguist commissioned one of Zagreb’s leading architects, Herman Bolle, to build him A Town of The Dead. And so this Neo-Renaissance wonder was born in 1879, with the construction of some magnificent arcades and a chapel when you visit, it doesn’t feel like you’re entering a graveyard, but a citadel....

There’s nothing like good ole farmer’s market to get you well and proper into the spirit of a place. The best of the local produce, the choicest of the local meats, the most authentic of the local people they all come together here. It’s right of the Ban Jelagic Square, so access isn’t a problem. If you’ve come around ...

Sv. CirilaiMetoda 3,, Zagreb, Croatia
10:00 am - 06:00 pm
As far as fine art goes, this is a bit different. It’s not contemporary art either, as much as untrained art. The artists exhibited here have had no formal education in art, at least in principle. Most of them are 20th century artists and many of them are internationally famous. Still, most of the work here is a result of the artist’s o...

Bukovacka, Zagreb, Croatia

Named after the man you conceived the park, this place is an excellent family day retreat with meadows, creeks, lakes and woods. It is THE place to relax, and a pretty one: it was landscaped extensively in Baroque, Romantic and Neo-classical styles. Picnic, walk, jog or whatever just chill at the park. Though the park itself has plenty of animals t...
