Zagreb is the capital of Croatia and its most important city. Although the city is not as popular with tourists and travelers as the Dalmatian coast is, it still offers a few nice attractions that make it worthwhile to stop over for a few days.
The city is divided into three parts: the thousand-year old upper town (Gornji grad) which contains the Presidential Palace, the historic church of St. Mark's, the Croatian parliament, museums and galleries which are all set in cobbled streets lit by gas lamps; the 19th century lower town (Donji grad) with its shops, restaurants, cafes, theatres, parks; and the modern post-war (WWII) part of Zagreb (Novi Zagreb) which is full of high-rise buildings and basically has nothing to offer to tourists.
Zagreb is called a city of museums as there are more of them per square foot than any other city in the world. But this doesn't mean that there is nothing else for you to do if you are not a history buff. One of the many pleasures that many Zagrebcani enjoy is sitting in one of the numerous cafes, watching the world go by. In the evening, you can visit one of the many restaurants, sampling one of the delicious Croatian dishes, and finish the day in the one of the bars or clubs. Whatever you choose to do, you are guaranteed to have a good time!
