Despite being a Central European city in geography, culture and baroque architecture, in many ways, Zagreb has a Mediterranean way of life. Thanks to its many influences, the city has a special charm and hospitable feel generated by its open-hearted people. Many say that nothing compares to this city!
A walk through Zagreb is an interesting and pleasant journey that encapsulates both history and modern day life. Ilica, the longest street in Zagreb, divides the city into the old romantic Upper Town and the young, busy and business orientated Lower Town. The Upper and Lower Towns are connected through the Kamenita vrata (Stone gate), yet another recognizable Zagreb tourist attraction that is linked to many legends and beliefs, as well as to faith and peace.
For some, the most recognizable place in Zagreb is its neo-gothic Cathedral situated at Kaptol.
Others tend to remember the always lively central Ban Jelačić Square or The Mimara Museum. Amongst the city’s many monuments is the oldest Zagreb cemetary called Mirogoj, which was opened in 1876. Thanks to its monumental neo-renaissance arcades, tombs of many famous Croatians from political and cultural life lay there. Zagreb is also the site of many cultural and international events.
The journey through Zagreb is not finished. You may best learn about it by walking down the city streets and enjoying a cappuccino in one of its many city cafes or visit the lively market of Dolac. You can enjoy the afternoon at the Jarun or Bundek lake, which are the cities oases for a nice walk, sports activites or even for a barbecue! The biggest value of this city is its atmosphere and the people who never allow you to feel alone.
