“Hrelic flea market”
Review of Hrelic Flea Market

Hrelic Flea Market
Ranked #148 of 255 things to do in Zagreb
Attraction details
Reviewed May 13, 2014

Although not at the level of flea markets in western Europe it is worth a while to visit an witness the non tourist side of Zagreb.

The main market takes place on every Sunday and the best part is that you never know what you are going to see :). Cheep (really cheep) retro clothes from the wardrobes of pensioners trying to get some more money to boost their pension, Gypsies selling piles of clothes from who knows where, books, comic books, old furniture, computers (when is the last time you have seen a ZX Sepectrum or Comodore 64), LPs (who knows they may even work), military medals from socialist era, every equipment you need to make a barbecue for 50 people, and all of this surrounded by the smell of huge amounts of čevapćići, pljeskavice, kotlovina and similar food to feed all the visitors.

Probability of someone speaking English is low (except for the young) but that should not stop you. Even if you do not buy anything just walking around it is an experience in it self.

If you are going in the summer expect heat and dust.

If you are in Zagreb on a Wednesday or Sunday morning, Hreljic flea-market is such a good fun. But you have to get up relatively early: everybody goes home at noon.
Sunday market is much larger then the Wednesday market.
Prices are really low - you can get quite an interesting object for 5kn (55p) or 10 kn (1.10 pounds) - and that is because it is really cheap to have a stall there: 6' stand costs only 10kn -1.10 pounds (For comparison, to trade at London's Camden Lock market costs 50 pounds, I believe). I presume sellers are there because they don't want to chuck out stuff they don't need any more, and they prefer to get a little bit of money and let it go into good hands.
I bought a great lamp there recently - for the grand sum of 7 pounds, and went through quite a lot of trouble in order to bring it back to London.
If you don't have a car, take tram no 7, get out south of river Sava and walk on the embankment till you see the market.

Spending money to buy something what has ment something to another person is a form of social contact and a very fast and effective way to see what life in a certain town is esentially like.
Hrelić Flea market is such a place in Zagreb.
On ther vendors side you will find people who want to prove that their appliances are worth something and the things thay have used do not belong to the garbage bin. Some successful ones have developed a business out from such attitude.
Buyers are persons who need a spare part or a souvenir for something or some time they are attached to. Some do come hoping to find a forgotten artistic masterpiece.
An interesting way to spend a Sunday morning in Zagreb which is facilitated by a direct bus line from the Main Railway Station bus terminal!
