    Zagreb Things to Do

    The fountain "Fisherman with Snake", by Simeon Roksandic, is situated on the Jezuitski trg (Jesuit Square). For some years already, there is no water in the fountain, I don't know the reason why, and it looks gloomy. This is new update of this fountain, from 2012. and 2013., the water is back and the whole fountain, and the statue including, looks...

    Zagreb Things to Do

    For many years this skyscraper was a mockery of the city, in my opinion it still is a mockery no matter fact that was almost completely reconstructed just a few years ago. Ever since when was erected the skyscraper became the subject of various controversies, some have praised him while the majority of the citizens felt that it should be demolished...

  • The Cathedral

    Zagreb Things to Do

    Zagreb's main landmark is the Cathedral of the Assumption. The original church was badly damaged by sieges of the Tartars and by an earthquake. The two impressive bell towers (104 and105 m) were erected in Neo-Gothic style at the beginnig of the 20 th century. On both my visits of Zagreb in 2004 and 2012, the cathedral was at least partly...

    What a treat to come across this on my day in Zagreb - this museum-cum-art installation was mentioned in an in-flight magazine I read once and it had obviously become lodged somewhere in my unconscious as I remembered it as soon as I saw the signpost. According to the website, it's now Zagreb's top attraction. The Museum of Broken Relationships is...

    Zagreb Things to Do

    To be honest, I don't know much about the Evangelists and have never entered into this church, although have passed by so many times. It is situated in the center of the city, very close to Croatian National Theatre. The church was constructed at the end of the 19th century, following the plans of architects Schmidt and Hermann Bolle. It is very...

    What an experience! This was my first time on one of these machines but I will certainly do it again. The tour includes all the sights of the upper and lower town but the highlight is the Segway itself. To glide effortlessly through the parks and streets of the town was unforgettable. Our guides were Bruno and Darja who looked after us wonderfully....

    This square is located close to the main train station (to the left as you exit) As you walk through this square and pass the fountain you will come to the beautiful front facade of the Regent Esplanade Hotel. Apart from being a nice place to relax on a sunny day there is nothing much else to say about this square other than there is a shopping...

    Zagreb Things to Do

    If you visit Zagreb, it is almost inevitable that you will fond yourself sooner or later in Ban Jelacic square. It seems to me to be the centre of the whole city. It is just below the Market area, close to the Old Town and at one end of the Ilica shopping street. As if this didn't make it central enough, most of the trams in the town pass through...

    This was the place that surprised me the most in Zagreb. The cemetery was created in 1876 and it has a beautiful architecture (on the inside and outside) and gardens. The arcades are the most interesting part because some columns are covered in Hera and you’ll find some amazing sculptures related to the people who are there (famous Croatians) Is...

  • Zagreb Archeological Museum

    I visited this museum in 2004 and was very impressed by its exhibits. The permanent exhibits include a Prehistoric collection; an Egyptian collection, collections from Greek and Roman and Mediaeval departments and an exhibit of the Numismatic collection. The big draw, of course, is the real mummy, kept in a refrigerated room. The mummy is...
