If your'e in town then you must take a short walk around the upper old town. Its a nice walk that isn't hard and can be done also with strollers. At the top you will find also a nice coffee place and excellent museums.

So I couldn't enjoy the liveliness of open air terraces, artists performing on the streets or other activities specific in a historical and touristic center.

This is place in Zagreb to find good music. I recommend the Caffe bar "Tituš" if you feel like rock and roll and if its summer go to Strossmayerovo šetalište and find some local artists.

Went with locals who are rightly proud of their city. You can do this yourself but better with others.
