    Dolac: Meats of all kinds

    by acemj Updated Mar 5, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Just below the terrace overlooking the square, you'll find an indoor section of the Dolac market where vendors sell all kinds of meat, breads and cheeses. Niksa and I tried some fresh bread with a local variety of young and sour cheese that might not be in existence if the EU infringes on the traditional way of producing it. I didn't care for the sour taste of the cheese, but this is certainly a great place to shop for dinner.

    Dolac is Zagreb's main city market. It is held on a terrace overlooking the main square, Trg bana Jelacica and you'll also have a view of the cathedral from here. You can find all kinds of fresh fruits and vegetables on the terrace along with many other goodies in the market hall below.

    Le Smerdile Perdile: Jars filled with locally brewed fart & stuff

    by MrDobelina Written Feb 2, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is such a special shop, indeed. You may have heard of the quintessential tourist shop in Zagreb? No? Then, let me indulge you. The first thing you notice when entering this boutique, is the smell. But don't let that stop you from going further into this cozy little den. There are hidden treasures to be found in those jars lining up stiff as if it was a military parade. And this is a proud parade of incredible oudours.

    What to buy: I'm not sure what to recommend, you should really just try out all the smells your nose can fathom. As said, there are far too many delicious aperitifs to make just that one recommendation. Let your nose make your decision. The shop owner is also willing to mix together the gas from several jars (for an extra fee, of course) to meet your special requirements!

    What to pay: Give them a sample of your own best homebrewed gas. Let the owner slowly sip in your special treat as a sign of au revoir, and he'll give you a pretty fat discount for sure.

    Ooooooh. Put THAT ONE on a jar, mister!!

    Importanne Centar and Importanne Galleria: Importanne shopping centers

    by FRONA Written Nov 28, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    These are 2 most famous shopping malls in the city center. Importanne Centar is right next to the Train Station and Hotel Esplanade. It is a great promenade place and traffic connection point so the food is always fresh :) It has loads of snack bars, loads of Italian shoe stores, loads of sports stores, loads of lingerie stores. My favorite stores there are TOPSHOP (the biggest in Zagreb, still quite a small one) and Gulliver.

    Importanne Galleria is situated in Vlaska street and features a number of ladies clothes store, watch stores, kids stuff, Pet store and snack bars. Details on both stores you can find on their website.

    Shopping for souvenirs - kravata Croata

    by Nykaenen Updated May 7, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You've probably heard it before, but in case you haven't, here's a little history of how come Croatia is called the homeland of the cravats (ties):

    When the thirty-year war (1618-1648) was raging in Europe, Croatian soldiers arrived as far as Paris. Their traditional military dress included picturesque scarves tied round the neck in a distinctive manner. The French liked this handsome "Croatian style" and during the reign of Louis XIV they adopted this new clothing item "á la Croate". From "á la Croate" the new word "cravate" came into existence and conquered the entire world.

    The Croatian word for tie is kravata.

    If you want to surprise your friends and business partners with this elegant souvenir, the trade mark you need is "Croata". They make ties and scarves in all price ranges, but expect to pay at least 300 kn (40 euros) for a piece.
    In Zagreb, their elegant shops can be found at the following addresses:
    Passage Oktogon
    Kaptol 13

    Croata, Passage Oktogon
