One of the places that I visit almost every time when in Zagreb is the wonderful antique/flea fair held every Sunday on Britanski trg square or, popularly called, Britanac. This is one of those beautiful, historic squares in old part of Zagreb that provides a perfect setting for this type of fair.
The day was not promising as the forecast was rain and drizzle but, we decided to take our chances and still go and visit knowing that there are always some hard – core antique dealers and that we may find something interesting.
Since it was not raining, there were a lot of people selling and visiting and, although not like in nice Spring weather, it was still quite crowded. We had to find our way among the stands and still be able to see the offer. And the offer was very wide!
Everything from antique door knobs, to books, postcards, paintings, nice porcelain to antique furniture pieces… There was plenty of antique jewelry as well.
I am usually buying old books and postcards but, due to bad forecast, most of the book dealers did not show up so we just strolled and I bought one postcard. Did not feel like going over many more stuff since I was not alone. But I will be back.
Britanac antique market is a great idea that started not so long ago but attracts nice crowds every Sunday as the offer is quite wide and interesting. A nice way to kill lazy Sunday morning and to find something for your personal library, summer house or that unique gift for someone special…
Here is the link to the organizer’s web (only in Croatian but nice gallery) and the fair is open every Sunday from 8 AM to 2 PM
