Zagreb is a central European city with a charming combination of Western European business style and Mediterranean informality. Zagreb is also one of Europe’s oldest cities and one of Europe’s youngest capitals. The city has a population of about 800 thousand, and the metropolitan area of more than 1 mil. Still, the city center is best explored on foot. Every visitor will find a favorite street, park, or square, be it behind the well-preserved walls of its romantic Upper Town, or in a daily hustle and bustle of cafes and stores in its Downtown. Also available are excellent restaurants, museums, theaters, and sports facilities. Further on, the wonderful coast of northern Adriatic, as well as the exceptional Plitvice Lakes National Park, are just a few hours’ drive away. [more about Zagreb…]
