  • 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.
