Zagreb is a wonderful city—offering a combination of fascinating history, rich cultural and artistic life, a thriving café culture, lots of events and festivals, green parks, a relaxed but vibrant atmosphere, and friendly residents.

Not far from the city are some of the most beautiful sites in Croatia, making Zagreb an excellent base for hiking in the area.

Here are some good reasons to visit Zagreb.

The Old City

As in many other European cities, the highlight in Zagreb is the old town, which is a pleasure to walk around in its atmospheric streets full of architectural gems.


Zagreb is studded with lots of gardens, parks, and lovely green corners. Zagreb’s Botanical Garden located right in the city center is a wonderfully peaceful and romantic corner with 10,000 plant species and a beautiful pool.

Cafés And Pubs

One of the streets that are especially recommended to get a cup of coffee in is Tkalciceva. The street is full of cafés on both sides and has a pleasant and lively atmosphere. Each square in the city has its character, and the cafés attract crowds accordingly.
