Zagreb is a beautiful city and Upper Town is probably the most beautiful place of this city but if you will go there during the summer probably the city will be empty because the people of Zagreb goes to the coast enjoy their beaches.

You can stroll around and see most of this in half an hour. Quite small old city center for a city of this size. Nice churces, Tcalciceva street with all its restaurants and cafes is a must, we came here on a Tuesday and it was packed with students and young people relaxing and having a drink.

The Croatian historical museum is nearby, as well as some interesting old churches (e.g. the baroque Catharina Church) Don't forget to have a look at the world's shortest cable... More
