Temperate maritime climate

Zagreb is situated in the north of Croatia, not far from the Slovenian border. The city boasts a very rich history and offers an abundance of culture. This is mainly due to Zagreb's historically strategic position, which is exactly between the cities of Venice, Vienna and Budapest. Enjoy the capital's lovely atmosphere, outstanding restaurants and beautiful sights with an authentic edge.
Places to visit in Zagreb
Within walking distance of the Art Park is the shortest cable tram in the world, also called the Ilica train. It takes you just a few minutes to get from the town centre to Gornji grad or Gradec. Here, in the higher part of the city, you'll find Zagreb's most important and popular sights. Are you sure you've seen all the hotspots of Zagreb? A local guide can show you even more of Zagreb's old town. A few hours will take you to the most wonderful sights, such as the cathedral, a walk along the Stone Gate, the parliament and the many fascinating churches.
A typical dish from Zagreb is called Strukli. It's made with a dough similar to lasagne, and filled with cottage cheese. If you want to try the best and widest variety of Strukli, then book a table at La Štruk. Coffee is an essential part of life in Zagreb, and you can get a freshly brewed cuppa almost anywhere. An instagrammable coffee? At Sjedi 5 it looks fantastic and tastes delicious!
