The Croatian city of Zagreb brims over with old-world charm, busy beer halls, chic boutiques, and a very young population. As you navigate it – the cobbled centre is best for walking – you’ll find beautiful architecture, great museums and art galleries, long, clean beaches and many cool cafes. Here are four spots you shouldn’t miss.
The Museum of Contemporary Art, sited in a building designed by local architect Igor FranicÌ, has on display exhibits by local as well as international artists. It’s a good place to get a sense of Croatian art. Also, don’t miss a visit to the touching Museum of Broken Relationships, which stocks memorabilia from couples that have – you guessed it – broken up. Keep tissues handy.
The Dolac Market has been attracting traders from all over the country since the 1930s. You’ll find a range of produce from meat and dairy products to locally-made honey and hand-made ornaments.
