Year after year travellers make their way to Croatia for yacht sailings along the epic coastline, but chances are if you’ve been to visit Croatia you have probably overlook Zagreb, the capital city. Zagreb is a compact city in relative terms but has a lot to offer visitors. From its distinguishable Austro-Hungarian architecture to the twin-spired Gothic Cathedral, Zagreb has a lot to be discovered.
The city of Zagreb is best discovered on foot. There are winding roads and alleyways galore on offer and quite often the best discoveries are those you stumble upon rather than research in advance. The city exists as a mash up of architectural styles – from secessionist to neobaroque and even a splash of art deco.
