How to Spend 1 Day in Zagreb

How to Spend 1 Day in Zagreb

With centuries of history, a beguiling mix of architectural styles, and elegant coffee shops cheek by jowl with modern craft-beer bars, Zagreb is one of Europe’s ascendant capitals, and its vibrancy seems to increase year upon year. One day offers just enough time to dip a toe into its enchantments—here’s how to plan your stay.

Morning: A Zagreb Overview

When every hour counts, make the most of your day out in Zagreb and kick things off with a hop-on hop-off bus tour. Make a quick, 1-hour circuit of the city, and admire its neoclassical squares and buildings as you go. Alternatively, head out on another set of wheels and get up close and personal with the sights when you explore Zagreb by bike. Many bike itineraries visit both the Upper Town (Zagreb’s oldest, most landmark-packed quarter) and the Lower Town, making for an efficient way to explore.

Afternoon: Exploring on Foot

Venture to one of the city’s grand cafés for a restorative coffee and light bite before continuing your tour around town. In the afternoon, soak up Zagreb’s evocative ambiance and receive a crash course in the city’s long history when you set off on a walking tour. A number of themed itineraries are available, depending on your interests. Sign up for an insider tour to discover what daily life in Zagreb is like; venture out on a private tour for a more intimate sightseeing experience; or book a history-themed tour to learn more about Zagreb’s wartime past.

Evening: Dinner in Zagreb

If you’ve worked up an appetite during your day of sightseeing, then all the better. Croatia is host to a rich food culture and longstanding winemaking traditions—and evening in Zagreb is the perfect time to sample both. Book a food-themed tour and you can hop from restaurant to restaurant, tasting classic local dishes as you go. Alternatively, attend a wine-focused tasting session to sip a number of Croatian varietals (and nibble local cheese, cured meats, and other traditional snacks).
