The city of Zagreb, capital of Croatia, is an old Central European city. It lies on the intersection of important routes between the Adriatic coast and Central Europe. The city can offer its visitors the Baroque atmosphere of the Upper Town, picturesque open-air markets, various shopping facilities, an abundant selection of crafts and a choice diverse cuisine. Zagreb is a city of green parks and walks, with many places to visit in the beautiful surroundings.
Zagreb is a city that loves to live outdoors and enjoys socializing. With the arrival of warm weather, the streets and squares of the Lower Town spontaneously turn into a big living room, and the citizens move their social life to cafés and parks, to terraces and benches. In Zagreb, an invitation to coffee is actually a secret code, an invitation to a long, casual and relaxing meeting under the open sky.
Špica or „the peak“ is the local for Saturday morning downtown promenade, when Zagrebians rush out in their finest attire, to see and be seen while having a cup of coffee and a chat. The hub of this ritual is Cvjetni trg (the Flower Square), as well as the streets around it. The other popular area for long coffee sessions is the lively Tkalčićeva Street. Although, when the weather is sunny and warm, all squares and streets in the centre get filled with people and positive energy any day, any time. Everyone can find the perfect spot to suit their needs.
Welcome to Zagreb, the capital of Croatia!
