  • It's the best place day or night to sit and people watch and get real feel for the city. There's plenty of coffee shops, restaurants, shops all around. It's the heart of Zagreb and it's wonderful!!!

  • Zagrebs center. Really good spot to catch a lot of various types of pokemon. Lots of gyms too. Good places to double or even triple lure. Hi son!
  • Main meeting point of the city and main square. Two usual spots to meet are "by the clock" and "by the statue". It's always lively with a lot of things hapenning there from concerts to small stands with local food and produce. You can also catch free wifi there.
  • Heart of the city and main meeting point. Free walking tours at 10 and 5 meet here. A lot of people and trams pass thru here.
  • The statue was large and well-lit, with an admirably portrayed horse, but was unfortunately surrounded by hawkers. Close to great bars and cafes, a supermarket and banks.
  • One of the Zagreb trademarks. If you come to Zagreb you must see it. It's one of the favourite meeting places for locals and there are a lot of cool cafés around.
