Croatia’s Capital : Zagreb

After a weekend of fun in Turkey, we headed to Zagreb, Croatia. Although it seemed like a quaint mountain town to us, it is actually the capital and largest city in Croatia!

Against old buildings, the city is filled with natural beauty. There are gardens and parks throughout, which were continuously filled with people strolling through or stopping to picnic.


In addition, there are a lot of art museums, galleries and installations available to the public. From photography to sculpture, there is something for everyone to see. Modern and contemporary art, natural history, the performing arts and the botanical gardens, the options are truly endless.


Open air markets such as the town center’s Dolac Market, sells fruits, vegetables, nuts and flowers. Café’s line most streets- some only selling coffee and others including full restaurant menus.

Zagreb is located along a river and at the bottom of the ski mountain slopes of Medvednica Mountain.

Many tourists skip this city to stay along the coast in more popular locations like Dubrovnik and Split, however we felt that it was a pleasant trip and enjoyed our time there while Jared completed his business.
