Top 5 things to do in Zagreb by Karlo

Top 1 Medvednica: great for mountain-miking during the summer because of the lower temperatures -and the amazing fresh air- a full day of just outdoors relaxing. And of course, Skiing and Snowboarding during the winter months (December through March), Ski FIS trophy in early January.

Top 2 Jarun Lake: Great clubs and a brilliant night life all year round. During the summer: a good selection of art festivals and a beach where you can go for a swim, a bike ride or simply sunbathe and relax…

Top 3 Tkalčićeva Street: The liveliest street in Zagreb with souvenir shops, bars, restaurants, ancient sights. Close to upper town which attracts tourists interested in its traditional architecture and the fantastic view of the whole city (past and present).

Top 4 Museums and Parks Tour: I know most people don’t do museum tours but if you try to visit every museum in Zagreb it will take you a good 3 to 4 days to see them all, so this is a good way to have a comprehensive tour if you don’t have that much time to spare. My museum recommendation for Museums in Zagreb: Museum of Broken Relationships, New Contemporary Art Museum, Mimara Museum, Technical Museum, Croatian Artists Centre;
As for parks: the Botanical garden, Mirogoj, Maksimir Park & Zoo, Bundek Park, Zrinjevac Park…

Top 5 Go to the Maksimir Stadium just to experience the sight of the most ugly stadium (until they build a new one). Once you get there you will be so happy that this ugly piece of architecture isn’t your favourite teams stadium -just kidding about that last one…

Top 5 is definitely the Flea Market: every Wednesday and Sunday just outside the city. A vibrant place with tasty and cheap food, funny characters and so much used and new stuff for you to buy -after some serious haggling of course.
