48 Hours Sightseeing In Zagreb Croatia
I’m currently traveling in Croatia for ten days followed by Morocco. I’m very lucky as a dear friend Katherine planned her 2015 Wanderlust Trip so I tagged along for these two countries. Read with me for posts covering our travels.
Below is my suggested list of the must see’s during a 48 hour visit to Zagreb Croatia. I’ve split up the sightseeing and the dining so check both to get the complete JetSetting Fashionista’s suggestions. I hope you enjoy Zagreb as much as we did and happy reading. XO, Emily. Zagreb, Croatia.
- A Market – Zagreb has some great markets, read more below!
- The Lower and Upper Towns – Zagreb is divided by area and be sure to check out both Upper and Lower Towns. They have different feels to them and are both equally charming.
- Museums – Zagreb is known for having amazing museums. Check your tour guide to find what’s of the most interest to you and visit!
- St. Stephen’s Chapel – A stunning Chapel just off The Dolac open-air food market. Swing by here on your way to Upper Town.
- Stroll the city – Zagreb is a very easy walking town (if you prefer more action rent a bike shown below) but it’s manageable to walk and cover a lot of ground.
- Sit and relax over a coffee, cake or drink – Croatians are known for loving to sit and chat over a coffee, drink or coffee. This is evident along the streets of the city. Immerse yourself in this relaxed atmosphere during your visit.
The stunning Croatian National Theatre
Ban Jelacic Square (the center of the city) with the tram and local markets all running through this daily
Dolac open-air food market. Great spot to shop and see the local culture. Such beautiful bright colors and amazing produce.
We bumped into this group of soldiers rehearsing their march. It was very cool to see and witness just off the Dolac market.
St. Stephen’s Chapel. One of the two spires is currently being restored. So beautiful inside and out (we briefly attended their Sunday mass).
Blue Bike Zagreb an amazing local bike touring company.
The Antique Fair at Britanski Trg held every Sunday from 8am – 2pm. This was fun to check out. It’s also a popular spot to just hang out, relax and have a coffee or beer with friends.
After shopping the market we hung out at this popular destination rehydrating with some local Ozujsko Beer and Jamnico Water. Perfect spot for a break.
