10 Things to do in Zagreb, Croatia Travel Guide Video Transcript:
Our travels in Croatia brought us to Zagreb known for its lively street markets, vast green spaces, and varied architecture that spans numerous movements, we reached the capital and hit the ground running. In this video we’re going to show you some fun things to do in Zagreb, as well as share our favourite place for sampling the most delicious truffle dishes:
From the main square you have the Flower Market, and if you head up the steps, that leads to Zagreb’s Central Market.
Zagreb Cathedral is one the city’s main landmarks. This is the largest sacral building in the Gothic style southeast of the Alps, and it’s pretty easy to spot the spires wherever you are in the city.
Our walk through the Upper Town eventually lead us to Tkalčićeva. These days you’ll find a lively street lined with restaurants, cafes and bars.
We reached what may be the most memorable museum in the whole world: The Museum of Broken Relationships. The museum is a global crowd-sourced project that deals with heartbreak. Inside you’ll find curious objects with a corresponding story.
St. Mark’s Church bears the medieval coat of arms of Croatia, Dalmatia and Slavonia on the left-hand side, and the emblem of Zagreb on the right.
To enjoy city views of the Lower Town there are some great vantage points along the promenade.
On our way down from the Upper Town, we walked through Zagreb’s famed Stone Gate. Once the eastern gate into the medieval settlement now houses a small chapel.
Let’s take a break from all the sightseeing to introduce you to one of our favourite restaurants in Zagreb when it comes to truffle dishes
And craving more views of the city, we then went up Zagreb 360.
Known as the Green Horseshoe, this park was named after Milan Lenuci who came up with the idea of creating connected green spaces right in the downtown. The horseshoe is home to several museums, galleries and archives.
If you’re into hockey and you visit Zagreb during the season, you can catch a game in the city. We watched Medveščak Zagreb play.
And that’s it for our visit to Zagreb! We hope you enjoyed this travel guide and that you got a few ideas of things to see, eat and do on your own visit.

Shaped by the force of the mighty rivers Drava, Danube, Sava and Ilova, Slavonia is a mythical region that for centuries has guarded its treasures. It is characterised by the wide, endless expanse of the golden Pannonia plains, and by rivers that gave birth to the flood areas, which, in turn, provide an ideal habitat for the now centuries-old forestsof common oak (Quercus robur) as well as for more than 2000 biological species. The soil of Slavonia has been tilled by human hand for over 8000 years.

It's no secret that Croatia is one of the most beautiful countries in Europe. From Slavonia, through Zagreb to Dalmatia, this country provides various options for all travel enthusiasts.
If you like the Mediterranean, then the best option is to visit Dalmatia or Istria.
On the other hand, if you are more of a continental type, then Zagreb or Slavonia is a great option for you.

Discovering Slavonia - wine cellars of Ilok
While travelling through Slavonia, our exquisite taste for wines took us to Ilok as it is recognized as one of the centers of wine production.
This wine growing region is rich in cultural herritage which is a blend of historical influences and its traditional culture. But we are not here to talk about culture, not yet, at least.
The most famous wine cellars are the ones standing in front of us - Iločki podrumi dating back from 15 th and 18th ct. We had the privilege to enter both - you can smell the special environment these wines mature in, and impressive wine barrels almost leave you breathless.
Only by standing next to one , you get the feeling how enormous they really are. But the most striking moment is when you realize we are standing next to the precious wine archive, filled with extremely old and expensive wines, maybe too exclusive for regular folks like us but suitable for royal elite - it is said that queen Elisabeth orders regularly.
The older the wine, the better it gets but you have to be prepared to pay a significant amount (of money) to indulge in such pleasures. All this wine can make people hungry, but with home made food made in old cellar restaurant problem is solved. Interesting surrounding of the former winery gives you a cozy and warm atmosphere.
After endulging your hedonistic urges, we strongly suggest to go outside and take a walk through nature - discovering the magical presence of the ancient ages when great battles were fought. The walls of the Ilok Fort take us to the 15th ct. when the castle was originally built. Situated on a hill above the town center, offering views on the Danube and the Pannonian Plain the history reveals itself.
Having changed many owners, the castle witnessed time passing by . This rich area was a strategic point for Romans since it was an eastern border of Roman Empire and a boundary (dividing line) between a civilization and barbaric world. Later on, after the Castle was built, the Ottomans conquered Ilok in 16th Ct but haven't stayed very long since the Europeans wan it back.
After restoration in 1945. It was opened for visitors in 2010.
The look on the impressive width of the Danube river makes you think that time does not pass by, just like the river, it continues. Visiting other places, gathering new experiences, it always keeps moving.
Don't miss to visit this interesting place.

The heart-shaped peninsula reaching deep into the clear blue waters of the Adriatic Sea is a hidden garden of beauty which opens the door to the sunny and warm Mediterranean. Come and travel through it without hesitation, and the holiday of your dreams will become reality.
Multicultural and hospitable, this is an area where wide-ranging diversities have come together to form a happy union. Istria's crystal clear sea, clean shores and ports, its lively fishing boats and teeming narrow stone streets exude the true charm of the Mediterranean. Small, picturesque medieval towns perched on the peaks of its hills emanate the peace and gentleness of landscapes that irresistibly evoke the most beautiful parts of Tuscany or Provence.

Slavonia Vlog / Visiting Županja and Vukovar
My grandfather was from Županja. When I was little, I used to spend time there with him and my family, and those are the memories I cherish the most. Don't know if I actually remember being there or just from what I've seen on the photos, but I love going back there and listening to the stories of my grandfather, his youth and seeing all my family. I never really lived there, but whenever I come to visit I feel like being home; I feel more connected than to some places I've actually lived in. I love Slavonia. It's by far my favourite region in the whole Croatia. Here is the vlog from my visit this September. Enjoy.

TRAVEL to ZAGREB, Croatia. Your Guide to the City.
We explore Croatia’s capital city of Zagreb. We start our day at Ban Jelačić Square and the market at Dolac Market. We then visit Zagreb Cathedral and have lunch on Tkalčićeva Street, a pedestrian street full of restaurants and bars. After lunch we visit St. Mark’s Church and the Museum of Broken Relationships. We finish off our day at Park Josipa Jurja Strossmayera.
The impressions of many foreigners who live in Zagreb, business people and tourists can be summed up in a single sentence: a large city which managed to stay romantic and safe. There are unlimited possibilities for visiting music and theatre events, art exhibitions, museums, sporting events and enjoying pleasant walks, interesting architecture, plentiful parks in the centre of the city, pedestrian zones and the atmosphere.
Zagreb is the city of international fairs, conventions, business meetings (Zagreb Fair and congresses), as well as sporting events. There are more than 6,000 beds in hotels, some of them belonging to world-famous hotel chains. The number of small and family-owned hotels and hostels is increasing. They all share the same level of professionalism and hospitality.
Situated just below the hillside settlements of Kaptol and Gradec, it has served as the city’s commercial heart ever since 1641, when it was designated as a place where fairs could be held. Most of the buildings around the square date from the 19th century, and display a variety of architectural styles, from Biedermaier to Art Nouveau and Post-modernism. The square was Zagreb’s main marketplace and carried the name “Harmica” (Hungarian for “one thirtieth”), after the tax levied on the goods that were sold here. In 1848 the square was officially renamed in honour of Ban (“Governor”) Josip Jelačić. After World War II the name of the square was changed to “Republic Square”, only to return to its previous title in 1990.
The Zagreb Cathedral on Kaptol is a Roman Catholic institution and not only the tallest building in Croatia, but also the most monumental sacral building in Gothic style southeast of the Alps
Tkalciceva Street is a beautiful street of Zagreb lined with restaurants and cafes. At that same place once flowed a river that separated the districts of Kaptol and Gradec.
This 13th-century church is one of Zagreb's most emblematic buildings. Its colourful tiled roof, constructed in 1880, has the medieval coat of arms of Croatia, Dalmatia and Slavonia on the left side, and the emblem of Zagreb on the right.
