What to see in Zagreb

Zagreb Attractions

Zagreb is full of attractions, most of which are found in the old town centre. A stroll through the city's cobbled streets is an experience in itself. One of the most prominent attractions in Zagreb is the Croatian History Museum, which is housed in an 18th-century Baroque palace called Vojkovic-Orsic-Rauch.

There is a sequence of town squares at the end of Praska Street in the old town which are a must for visitors. Each square boasts its own historical features, making the area a veritable party pack for tourists.

For those intrigued by ancient history, the Roman town of Andautonia outside Zagreb is well worth a visit. For a walk through centuries of Zagreb's proud but turbulent history, visit the Mirogoj Cemetery. Many prominent Croatians are buried here and it is said to be one of the most unique cemeteries in Europe.

Another popular attraction in the city is the quirky Museum of Broken Relationships, which is probably one of the most innovative museums in Europe. As the name suggests, this museum collects and displays mementos from failed relationships from all over the world. Each item is displayed with a story, some funny, some sad, some touching. It certainly is not a typical museum experience but people flock to see these ordinary objects and read the personal anecdotes that make them significant. Allowing visitors to delve into the private love lives of other has earned the museum rave reviews.

For a break from the bustle of the city, go hiking or biking on Medvednica Mountain. It looms above Zagreb and promises beautiful scenery and well-maintained trails. Visitors can get impressive views of the city below from several vantage points on the mountain.
