Zagreb, the capital city of Croatia, is a place lots of people just drive through when coming to the beautiful Croatian coastline.
That is why, we decided to stay.
And to give you an insight in what not to miss while you’re staying here.
There are so many reasons to love Zagreb, whether because the appealing architecture, great restaurants and cafes, museums or summer festivals – spending more than a night in the Croatian capital is really a must.
The city itself, as capital, is not only the largest city of the country, but also the cultural, economic, sporting and cinematic center.
Since it’s situated right on the slopes of Medvednica Mountain and along the banks of the Sava River, it offers interesting hiking tours or lots of places to relax by the river, or in one of many city parks.
The administrative center of the country, as well as political can be found in the Kaptol area, and we definitely recommend a visit there, because of its medieval architecture and charming narrow little streets.

Clubs and restaurants
For those who’d like to explore some interesting clubs, and again stay in the city center, the address you should remember is Tkalciceva street.
The street itself is a minute away from the famous city’s Ban Jelacic Square, and is full of cafes and restaurants.
We’ve visited jazz bar named Melin, and because of the interior, live jazz music beats and lively atmosphere – this is our number 1 pick of the street.
Our tip – since the street is really full of cafes, and there’s one after other along Tkalciceva, it can be a bit complicated to find Melin, but if you’re coming from the direction of Ban Jelacic Square, it’s somewhere in the middle, on your left side.
And, of course, you can always ask someone – English in Zagreb, as in the rest of the country, is widely spoken.
