Croatia is not just about coastlines, sea and sailing. Filled with galleries, museums, historic monuments and picturesque cobbled streets leading to fresh markets and clothing boutiques; It’s no surprise, we’ve been in love with Zagreb for so many years.
Zagreb has both an Upper and Lower town; The Upper town known as Gornji Grad, a medieval town boasting historic churches and museums. A must see in Upper town is the Church of St. Marks. See the infamous patriotic red, white and blue roof tiles bearing the coats of arms of Croatia, Dalmatia, Slavonia, and Zagreb City.
The Museum of Broken Relationships is another attraction not to be missed. Within the museum you will find exhibitions of compelling and heartbreaking stories of “broken relationships” told through personal belongings; this display of mementos is what ultimately makes this museum so unique.
In the lower town experience the sights, scents and sounds of the Dolac market, Ban Jelačić Square, Ilica street, the Zagreb cathedral and so much more.
With so much on offer you will soon see why this destination is the Lonely Planet’s “Best European Destination to visit for 2017″ and one of our long standing favourites.
