Croatia is a lost paradise for its beautiful beaches and crystal clear waters, to the point that some consider them the best in the world. For example, the beach of Zlatni Rat. It is also remarkable the beauty of its 1244 islands that hide breathtaking landscapes and inhospitable places of dreams.
Croatia is known as the "pearl of the Adriatic" with fascinating places such as Dubrovnik, or Plitvice Lakes, a natural spot that astonishes visitors who come to receive the serenity, peace and at the same time admiration they transmit. But today we will speak of a great stranger; Zagreb.
Zagreb is the capital of Croatia, it has certainly nothing to do with cities like Dubrovnik, Zadar or Rovijn, however, it has nothing to envy them, having its own personality and style is a place worth visiting. As for the climate it is the warmest city in all of Croatia, since the average temperature is between 27 degrees Celsius in the summer months and 4 degrees Celsius in winter.
Zagreb airport is located in the vicinity of the town of Pleso and is the main airport in Croatia, so it would be a shame not to see this pearl that has been hidden for so long.
Now we will mention some of the places that will not leave you indifferent.
First, we highlight the Plaza de Ban Jelacic, it is a good point to begin to see the other monuments. It is the main square of the city and also there is the tourist office where you can ask for information before starting the tour, highly recommended.
Nearby you will find the Cathedral of Zagreb, it is very easy to locate it by its two huge Gothic towers that can be seen from any point of the city. The Dolac Market, near the Cathedral, is worth a visit as it is an open-air market selling all kinds of food and handicrafts.
The Plaza San Marcos, crowned by the church, is perhaps one of the most iconic and picturesque places in the city. You will see unique red, white and blue roof tiles, drawing the coat of arms of Zagreb and the Kingdom of Croatia. In the same square you will enjoy several buildings of long tradition and interesting history.
It is very interesting to see the Mirogoj cemetery that stands out for its main door, one of the most beautiful that have been seen in a cemetery. It is the only one of the four access doors that crossed the ancient walls which has remained for the record.
It is an indispensable requirement in Zagreb to stop at each pastry shop or cafeteria to find traditional cheese, apple and cherry strudels, or kremsnitas (cream tarts). You will not regret savouring the traditional and delicious Croatian cuisine.
