What to do in Zagreb – selections of Croatia attractions

Highlights and tours in Zagreb and from Zagreb

Zagreb is an ideal cit to use up every single day you’re staying there. Being not as big as most European capitals, it gives you the opportunity to wander and explore all kinds of mutually different things that suit any taste. Either you’re a nature lover, an art enthusiast, or merely a hedonist that enjoys a bit of all in moderation, Zagreb works itself as Croatia’s maybe biggest attraction because it offers you so much in a relatively small space.
