Visit Zagreb – The Capital Of Croatia

Croatia is a relatively small country in southeastern Europe, visited by tourists, primarily because of the beautiful coast of the Adriatic Sea. Zagreb is mentioned for the first time almost 1000 years ago, today it is the capital of Croatia.

Something about city history

The town has two historic parts of Civic Gradec and the church part of town between which they were carrying frequent bloody battles, whose architectural remains are still preserved, so visitors can enjoy the opportunity to climb from the main square, either in the narrow streets or by funicular, from the old walls of the former Gradec. The tourists can see the almost complete panorama of the city and only a hundred meters from the main square dominated by the beautiful building of the  St.Marko church architecture, old masters’ houses, craftsmen as well as the palaces of the richest citizens will leave every visitor a strong impression.

Going down to the lower town built mainly in a neoclassical style, it is worth visiting the main market of the city, 50 meters away from the main square “Jelacic square”, and buy the use of the quality products of the Croatian village at really affordable prices. Also in the very narrow part of town as well as the wider, every visitor will notice a large number of coffee bars and restaurants.
