Zagreb

Zagreb boasts a combination of Austro-Hungarian and Socialist architecture, but it is beloved for its outdoor cafe culture.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Mirogoj Cemetery and Porta di Pietra (Kamenita Vrata). Upper Town (Gornji Grad) and Lower Town are good opportunities to explore the local culture. There's still lots to do: test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, pause for some serene contemplation at Zagreb Orthodox Cathedral, make a trip to Tkalciceva, and explore the world behind art at Croatian Museum of Naive Art.

To see ratings, where to stay, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Zagreb tour itinerary builder site .

Seattle, USA to Zagreb is an approximately 16-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and shuttle. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 9 hours traveling from Seattle to Zagreb. Plan for slightly colder nights when traveling from Seattle in March since evenings lows in Zagreb dip to 35°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 17th (Sat) so you can travel to Rab Island.
