Being the capital of Croatia and for good reason, Zagreb is not lacking anything. It is a bustling city with the whole package – culture, arts, music, architecture, and of course amazing food.
Differentiating from coastal attractions, Zagreb a year-round city with always something to offer its visitors. During spring and summer, you have Jarun Lake which is ideal for swimming and sailing or dance the night away at lakeside clubs and bars. In winter you can enjoy winter activities such as ice skating or skiing and sledging at Mt Medvednica, which is only a bus or tram ride away. Not to mention the magical winter landscape brimming with Christmas decor and night markets.
The best thing is that Zagreb’s location makes the coastal towns super accessible, with Split being a four-hour bus ride away, Hvar being 5 and Dubrovnik being six hours away!
