A refreshing blend of ageing grandeur and modern splendour, the Croatian city of Zagreb is the ideal European city break for the discerning traveller. Explore the city to discover its neo-gothic cathedral and the Mimara Museum with its paintings by Goya, Degas and Renoir, and make sure you find a vantage point with which t enjoy the cityscape.
For those who enjoy discovering their cities as a more leisurely pace, Zagreb has a marvellous café culture, with Tkalciceva Street ideal for cafes, bars and restaurants that spill out onto the square. Set on the cusp of Western Europe and the Balkans, Zagreb is representative of this in its culture but also makes it the ideal city to venture further afield. The Plitvice Lakes National Park is a sight to behold with its waterfalls and wildlife – including bears and wolves -, Croatia’s popular coastline is within easy reach.
