Zagreb in October

by oxfordlad

Is October a good or bad time to go to Zagreb? I was thinking about taking a week there in October, is that too long? what will the weather be like?

Re: Zagreb in October

I am not sure about the weather aspect, but I spent a very pleasant four days there and whilst I thoroughly enjoyed it I would suggest that a week may be slightly too long. Perhaps you should consider combining it with another city or town.

Hope this assists,

fergy.

October can be a bit unpredictable but in general the weather is fine, still warm enough (around 20 degrees) to sit in one of the numerous street cafes of central Zagreb. Unlike July and August, when everybody goes to the coast and the city is deserted, in October everyone is back, the students are back in town, the theatre and concert season begins so you should have no troubles finding some events in the evenings.

Although a week might sound a bit too long for Zagreb for some, you should also know that it is probably one of most underrated Croatian cities and one of most underrated European capital cities when it comes to tourism, only because it is in the same country with Dubrovnik and thousands of islands. Don't let this stop you!

If you get tired of Zagreb after three days there are some great options for daytrips from Zagreb, including the Medvednica mountain, nearby town of Samobor, picturesque baroque Varazdin, castles of Hrvatsko Zagorje region (Trakoscan, Veliki Tabor, Gornja Stubica), not to mention Plitvice Lakes that should have a colorful October leaves and plenty of water.

Hi, I stayed in Croatia the last week of October last year. We were based in Zadar where it was still hot enough to swim and get a decent tan. We drove up to Zagreb for the day naively dressed in our summer clothes - shorts and vest tops. It was COLD, we got many strange looks and had to buy some cheap clothing in a supermarket! Even wrapped up it still felt cold. I've done quite a bit of research into the regions of Croatia and I think a week in Zagreb may be too long, it depends what you're into. My advice, hire a car so you have the option to explore some of the other regions too.

Travel Tips for Zagreb

Zagreb by night

by HORSCHECK

As it gets dark relatively early in Zagreb, you shouldn't miss a stroll around the town in darkness. Some historical buildings and squares of Zagreb are beautifully illuminated at night. Among them is the Jelacic Square, the Croatian National Theatre and the Fortification Towers near the cathedral (For more night shots, please have a look at my travelogue "Zagreb by night").

Visit the Old Town as well as...

by torcida2002

Visit the Old Town as well as Kaptol. Go to a soccer game,(highly recommended: Hajduk vs. Dinamo-go at your own risk!)Go to Boban's restaurant and cafe and of course check out the cafe scene on Bogoviceva. And buy a genuine neck tie (Croatian invention) as a souvenir, handcrafted by old ladies who know how to make the most high quality, best looking ties. Visit Mirigoj, the most amazing cemetery I've ever seen! Some famous graves include Drazen Petrovic (the nba's greatest ever european player). Yeah that's right hang out at a cemetery. Seriously though its something to see. After frolicking in the cemetery go to the nearby Maksimir zoo. I miss the women and the alcohol/cafe scene.

Zagreb - Gas lights

by Martin_S.

Near St. Mark's Square, you can find the old city hall and here you will also find as the sun sets that they light the gas lights. We did not have time to stay and see the lights at night, but it should be somewhat different than neon, what do you think..

Trg Bana Josipa Jelacica

by croisbeauty

This is the picture of the squareI did in the first week of January 2003.
The town of Zagreb, under the snow, is particularly attractive, many says at that time Zagreb is a real beauty, howevr, it might be a real nightmare too. You cannot walk throughout the streets or drive your car coz the cleaning of the snow sometimes gets very slow.
Since 2005 it is the part of World ski-tour, come and enjoy in the most spectacular slalom-race that exist. Have you seen Janica in the second race, January 5th 2006, she was just incredible, lost her right ski-stick and glove right after first port and yet she did second best time in the second race.

Take a stroll

by acemj

Zagreb is a town that invites a stroll through its streets. Looking at a map in a guidebook doesn't always tell you how big a city is and how easy it is to walk. Well, let me tell you that Zagreb is a great place to see on foot. The weather was pretty cold while I was there and occasionally, it was nice to duck into a building to get out of the cold, but nonetheless we explored good portions of the Upper and Lower Towns on foot quite comfortably.
