From A to Zagreb – In Love With Croatia
Welcome to Croatia, one of my new favorite countries, and its Capitol, Zagreb.
Zagreb is a gateway into a country full of beautiful scenery, interesting history, and kind people.
It’s a great mix of old and new, including old peeling walls…
…and a bustling square.
Art appears everywhere, spilling out into the streets…
…and great graffiti graces the walls.
It’s also a city full of museums.
If you’re looking for something a little different, check out the Museum of Broken Relationships, sad, funny and heartening all at once, a glimpse of the human condition that most can relate to.
Great restaurants abound in Zagreb, as well as places to grab a snack…
…and there are plenty of shopping opportunities…
…as well as lots of green space.
It’s easy to get around on the local blue trams…
…as well as alternative forms of transportation.
My friend Beth from Michigan flew into Zagreb to join me for a week of travel in Croatia, and we spent 2 lovely days here. She said her time in Croatia was one of her best trips ever!
So if you’re looking for a destination that’s full of history, charm, art, architecture, good food and good people, with an affordable price tag, consider Croatia. Several more posts will follow on different areas of the country, from National Parks & waterfalls, to walled cities, to gorgeous beaches on several islands (there are over a thousand islands along the Croatian coastline!) Come on along for the ride, and then book your own ticket!!
It just keeps getting better! Such fantastic photos!! Sending light and well wishes to you on your amazing adventure!! Hugs!! :-)))
Thank you! Glad to have you following along 🙂
Oh my. I’m falling in love with Zagreb all over again! Beautifully described, Lynn.
Thanks, Beth! We’ll have to go back 🙂
And you really made the trip special, Beth. You’re a true travel angel, thank you!!
Zagreb, looks historic, quirky, interesting and friendly, definitely on my list next time I’m in Croatia
It’s all of that, Grahame! I missed Istria, which isn’t far, so that’s also on my list for next time
