Zagreb, a city with a rich history

Zagreb is characterized by its Austro-Hungarian architecture from the 18th and 19th centuries. In the upper town of Gornji Grad there is the cathedral with the twin towers and the St. Mark's Church with the colorful roof.

The numerous street cafes on the pedestrian street Tkalčićeva Ulica are very close by. In the lower town of Donji Grad there is the main square, Ban Jelačić, as well as shops, museums and parks.

Attractions in Zagreb

The widely visible Cathedral of the Assumption of the Virgin in Zagreb is one of the most famous churches in the country and impresses with its elaborate neo-Gothic architecture and a history of almost a thousand years of destruction and reconstruction. The second famous place of worship in Zagreb is the picturesque St. Mark's Church. Its unmistakable coat of arms makes it the symbol of the Upper Town.

On Jelačić Square there is hustle and bustle day and night thanks to Croatian’s shopping and chatting, street musicians and tourists on their way to Zagreb's sights. As a connection between the upper town and the lower town of Zagreb, the centrally located Ban Jelačić Square is the most important meeting place for tourists and locals. People like to meet “kod sata na trgu”, “by the clock at the place”.

The impressive Lotrščak tower in the upper town was once a watchtower, bell tower and cannon tower and now functions as a lookout tower and an unmistakable symbol of Zagreb.

Museums and cultural institutions

The National Theater on Tito Square is not only Zagreb's magnificent stage for the most important plays, operas and ballet performances, but with its impressive architecture is also one of the city's most important sights.

With over 3,700 works of art by international masters, the Mimara Museum in Zagreb's former high school is one of the most valuable private collections in the world and should not be missed when on holiday in Zagreb.

A museum of a different kind is the Museum of Broken Relationships. It was named the most innovative museum in Europe and houses relics from all over Europe that tell stories of past love and passion.
