Lower Town, Zagreb

(4.6/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • It is inconceivable that the diversity of the Kaptol "under". Piacnapokon not only the square, but the lower level is accessible by an elevator in sight. "Of course," can be found in taverns, cafes here! The Krampuh szobránál photography!

  • In zagreb for few days i visited the commercial side of it and truly i wasn't impressed. third tier shops and no pathos. a cacophony of unknown brands and bad taste. steer clear.  more »
  • Zagreb's squares are ideal for nice walks interspersed with stops at many bars open all day, summer and winter! The inhabitants of this city are very friendly and like to sit to drink coffee dedicating time to enjoy life, perhaps contemplating the view of this city that offers many glimpses Austro-Hungarian. The squares are not lacking artistic, musical and culinary often aimed at the enhancement of its national wealth.
