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.

  • It was ok. Not well prepared for tourists, but some parts of the museum do not need to be explained. A good bad-wether stop.
  • historcal very interresting, several plazed were in Deutsch, croatian, english and even braille
  • Fascinating historical introduction to this underappreciated gem of an old European city
  • Huge amount of items and information, expect 2 hours if you want to read all. English is available on section description however is missing on the smaller exhibits description.
  • Great museum with lots of interesting facts and myths about Zagreb's long history. Be sure to check out the history about witch hunting and other gruesome but interesting stories.
