Flights to Zagreb

Flights to Zagreb take culture-hungry travellers to a charming city where quaint cafes and locally owned restaurants line busy medieval streets. From the historic Upper Town to the attraction-packed Lower Town, the city embodies new European cool.

During the spring and summer months, venture beyond the capital to explore breath-taking national parks and go hiking in the mountains. You can also spend a few days in the city soaking up the culture - the Museum of Contemporary Art is a must - then head to Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast, where you’ll find gorgeous Split. From there, swap the car for the sea and set sail to picturesque Hvar or Brac for a taste of the Adriatic.

Dubrovnik is not to be missed when you visit Croatia. Picturesque and full of history, the whimsical architecture of the walled Old Town will draw you in and ensure your holiday photographs pop.

But Zagreb isn’t just a summer break destination. In the colder months, the many museums offer both shelter and mental stimulation, and the ski resort of Sljeme on mountain Medvednica is just a twenty minute drive from the city. The traditional villages at the foot of the mountain produce some of the best gingerbread you’ll ever taste.

Business travellers with an interest in tech start-ups can seize opportunities in Zagreb too. All the largest Croatian companies, media and scientific institutions have headquarters there.

If time isn’t an issue, you also use Zagreb as your springboard on the ultimate Central European road trip.

Browse Britanski trg

Zagreb’s British Square is filled with fruit and vegetable hawkers during the week, but on Sunday mornings it’s taken over by an open-air flea market, with over 100 stalls selling all sorts of antiques. Early risers, collectors and culture vultures will all enjoy browsing the wares.

Ride the funicular

This 66 metre long track connects the Ilica Street (Donji Grad) with Strossmayerovo šetalište (Strossmayer promenade) to the north (Gornji Grad) – once the busiest path in Zagreb. It may be the shortest cable car ride in the world, but it’s a must when you visit Zagreb.

Sample nightlife in Tkalčićeva

The city centre’s main nightlife stretch is lined with cafes, bars and restaurants. Tourists’ hot spots are dotted along its spine, but be sure to delve down every historic side-street too. Otto&Frank is a firm favourite with both locals and visitors.

Swim in Jarun Lake

Join the locals in a cooling dip in Jarun Lake during the summer.

Located in the south of Zagreb, Jarun Lake is known as the ‘Zagreb Sea’ thanks to its multifaceted nature.

Shed a tear at the Museum of Broken Relationships

This slightly cynical museum tells the tale of failed romances through a collection of artefacts, donated by jilted lovers who feel the objects represent their broken affairs. The exhibition is strangely compelling, and there’s also a café on-site where you can indulge.

Pivnica Mlinarica

While you’re in Zagreb you should indulge in gablec, which is a Croatian take on fast food. At lunchtime, many restaurants in Croatia serve cheaper versions of their a la carte dishes and this ambient local eatery does it well, combining seasonal ingredients to make simple but heart-warming meals.

This seafood restaurant on the corner of Teslina and Preradovićeva is within walking distance from the main nightlife area, but it was established long before the trendy bars opened. The kitchen’s specialty is baked octopus, but their black risotto (crni rižot) is also excellent.

If you’re looking for fine dining in a relaxed setting near the Oris House of Architects, Voncimer is the place to go, no matter what time of day. The restaurant serves experimental cuisine with European flavours, and there’s a definite leaning towards Ukranian fare, best exhibited in their ravioli with rabbit ragu.

La Struk

You can’t visit Croatia and not try štrukli, a local delicacy consisting of rolled dough filled with the traditional cottage cheese and sour cream. This place is often hailed as Zagreb’s best štrukli joint. The classic versions are filled with spinach, but those with a sweet tooth will love the fruit versions.
