Quick quiz: name three European capital cities. Italy: Rome! France: Paris, of course! Croatia? Hmm ... hold on, lets Google that ... ah yes, Zagreb! Even though you may not remember the Croatian capital city off the top of your head, you certainly won't be able to forget it after you visit. With a prime location between the Mediterranean and Eastern Europe, Zagreb packages allow you to experience the different styles of art, architecture and culture in this eclectic city.
Things to Do in Zagreb
Explore the culture near your Zagreb accommodation by visiting the Croatian Museum of Naive Art. Wait, is the art young and immature? Not exactly. Naive here refers to self-taught, and this museum will give you a view of Croatian life through the local artists’ eyes. If that’s not unique enough for you, try the Museum of Broken Relationships on for size. It’s an ode to breakups around the world that contains notes and artefacts of failed romances. Book Zagreb hotels in the city centre and you won’t have to go far to recover from your sentimental cry.
Done weeping over lost love? Time to learn about lost civilisations instead! Just 15 km outside Basel sits Andautonia, an active archaeological site housing the remnants of an ancient Roman city. It's an active dig site, so you may see ancient relics uncovered during your visit. (Cool!)
Getting To & Around Zagreb
Flying into Zagreb Airport (ZAG) will put you about 17 km south of the city centre. The extensive rail service can deliver you to downtown in a snap. Once in the city, there are loads of taxis, buses and trams to take you wherever you desire.
