Accommodation & Apartments in Zagreb
Zagreb is the vibrant capital city of Croatia in Eastern Europe with a beautiful medieval 'old city' that draws over half a million tourists each year. Stay in an apartment in Zagreb 'Upper Town' or 'Lower Town' and enjoy being in the heart of the cultural and commercial hubs of the city. Booking accommodation in the center of the city allows you to be within easy reach of the main tourist attractions and choose from the best selection of restaurants and bars. In the medieval center of the city, you can find a guesthouse in Zagreb and get in touch with the lifeblood of the city. This area was originally two warring towns which eventually came together in the 1770s to form the northern core of historic Zagreb. Later the city expanded to the south and the famous Jelacic Square was created which houses the railway station and connects the city to the Sava River. Religion is an important aspect of Zagreb culture with sights such as the tranquil sacred shrine to the Virgin Mary at the Old Town Gate where, as the locals believe, you can light a candle to make your wishes come true. In the summer months enjoy the street artists, musicians and performers in the streets of 'Strossmayer's Walkway' or take in the atmosphere of the biggest park in the city, the Maksimir Park, which is a great place to relax, take a stroll and enjoy a picnic whilst you watch to joggers and cyclists pass by. You can also visit Zagreb Zoo or one of the two very popular lakes in Zagreb. There are beaches and bars, shows and festivals with most activities taking place during the summer months. Zagreb is the only capital in the world that hosts a Ski World Cup race so in the winter you can enjoy the sporting events of the Snow Queen Trophy which attracts over 25 thousand people each time. For a more cultural experience you can visit one of the many museums including the popular Archaeological Museum which houses an impressive Egyptian collection, including the Zagreb mummy whos bandages have the oldest Etruscan inscription in the world. Appreciate the local art history in the Croatian Museum of Naïve Art which houses more than one thousand Croatian pieces.
