Lower Town, Zagreb

4.6
#7 of 18 in Neighborhoods in Croatia
Replete with imperial architecture and a modern layout, Lower Town serves as a showcase for Zagreb's modern development. Created in the 1870s, the city recalls the shape of a horseshoe, though this was not ever fully completed. Wander the city to explore its network of gardens, parks, and wide boulevards, as well as stores, shops, galleries, and museums, including an ethnographic display and a collection of famous European paintings. You'll find that the area's Hapsburg rulers infused the buildings with a taste of Austrian style. Finish of your tour of the square of Marshal Tito, where you can admire the nearby ornate palace.

    The market of fresh products is very interesting since it is in the center os the active Zagreb. Lots of fresh fruit and vegetables sold by gentle people. Beautiful to see and be part of it.  more »

    used to be a nice fresh and tasty market. today full with flies and bees. the products are still quite good but not a high standard. It also uses as a tourist trap and please keep your pockets.  more »

Where to stay in Zagreb

Lodging in Croatia's capital Zagreb maintains a high standard, with many centrally located hotels offering significant weekend discounts on their finest rooms. Hostels remain the most affordable option for budget-minded travelers visiting for a day or two, providing small but neat rooms only steps away from the city's most popular bars, clubs, and restaurants. For something a bit quieter, look for self-catering apartments and guesthouses in the city's residential neighborhoods, where you can park for free and get a good night's sleep.
