Flights to Croatia

Flights to Croatia are one of the most sought after terms when researching how to reach Croatia. As more and more carriers are flying directly to Croatia, it is becoming increasingly difficult to get proper information and to find the easiest way to (and out of) Croatia. From the main airports to several smaller, and…

Stari Fijaker 900 Restaurant – Zagreb

Zagreb has many great restaurants and it is easy to find nice place with great food. Many are modern and quite inovative but most still play it safe with either “Italian” menus or classic Croatian restaurant menus offering same octopus salad, pršut and cheese, few pasta dishes, few variations of steaks… Boring. But, in Zagreb, one can…

Zagreb Zoo – for children and nature lovers

Every autumn, we try to visit Zagreb ZOO. It is probably the best time to visit this beautiful park although it is pretty in all seasons. It is located in the famous city park Maksimir and opened to general public since 1925. Maksimir was named after bishop Maksimilijan Vrhovec who initiated the construction of the…

Zagreb Wine Gourmet Weekend 2012

Zagreb Wine Gourmet Weekend is one of my favorite wine and food shows in Croatia. A great opportunity to see and learn about new trends, wines, olive oils and food but also to meet some old friends and make some new ones. This year, ZWG was held at wonderful settings of the old Glyptotheque of…

Museum of Broken Relationships, Zagreb

It is official: the BEST museum in the World is in Zagreb! It is the most awesome Museum of Broken Relationships and I finally got to visit! I have to say that I have been a fan of the very idea as soon as I heard of it as it is simply brilliant. And the…

Eating out in Zagreb

Unlike here in Dalmatia, Zagreb has a great offer of international restaurants. From Indian to Chinese, pasta to sushi… But, of all international cuisines, Thai food has been my favorite for a long time. Last time in Zagreb we decided to go to Opium oriental bar for some Thai tastes. Opium is located in Branimir…

Sunday’s Antique Fair in Zagreb

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…
