5 fun things to do on a Zagreb city break

Zagreb, Croatia’s vibrant north western capital, oozes culture, music and historical architecture. Offering beautiful ancient monuments, open-air markets and a plethora of activities for visitors, it’s easy to understand why the city is a popular holiday destination.


We love this thriving capital, split into Upper Town and Lower Town – check out our top five things to do on your holiday to Zagreb!

1) Explore its impressive cathedral

The Cathedral of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary is a stunning gothic cathedral and city landmark in the heart of Zagreb. The impressive cathedral is a must-see on your Croatian break, offering a beautiful collection of art including paintings, statues and stained glasses.

2) Visit a museum of broken relationships

Zagreb’s unusual Museum of Broken Relationships is a popular attraction in the city. The museum, which is dedicated to failed relationships, offers interesting and award-winning exhibits including sentimental objects from real former partners, love letters, Valentine’s cards and wedding rings.

3) Hike the Medvednica mountain

Mount Medvednica, just north of Zagreb, offers fantastic hiking opportunities with breath-taking panoramic views. You can choose from a variety of routes, from easy, relaxed walks to more challenging hikes, ending at the top of the mountain, at Sljeme. The Croatian capital also boasts a great ski resort on the ski slopes of Medvednica.

4) Take a dip in Zagreb Sea

Exploring the clear waters of Jarun Lake, in south Zagreb, is a must in the summer months in particular. The lake, also known as Zagreb sea, also offers cycle tracks and great sunbathing opportunities. A picnic near the lake promises a tranquil afternoon, located ideally (not too far from the city centre). In the summer, the average temperature here is 21*C, so you’re sure to soak up some Croatian rays relaxing close to the lake!

5) Immerse yourself in art

Zagreb offers an array of museums and art galleries to explore on your Croatian break, notably the Art Pavilion in the Lower Town area of the city. The 19th century art gallery, stunning inside and out, offers a huge variety of exhibitions and projects focussing on Croatian modern art especially.
