Heritage, Wine, Food
Even though most of this modern city sprang up in the latter half of the 20th century, Zagreb features a series of elements of cultural and architectural heritage. Following these elements you can learn a lot about a croatian history. The most important ones are St. Marco's Square, the Matija Gubec's scaffold, palaces belonging to Croatian nobility, the Parliament, churches that tell of the nation's history, the Kaptol, still surrounded with walls and ramparts, just like in the times of the Turkish invasions, the cathedral, the main square, Dolac market, Zrinjevac and Maksimir Parks...
Entertainment, Recreation, Excursions
Entertainment is always within reach - there are theatres, museums, galleries, numerous clubs and concert halls, late night bars... Zagreb offers something for everyone. There is a wide choice of recreational opportunities too. The most interesting ones are the excursions to Zagorje, Samobor and Medvednica, and we recommend visiting Turopolje and its century-old small wooden churches.
