Our Croatian adventures ended in the capitol city of Zagreb which also happens to be one of my favorite Ticket to Ride cities.
We arrived in the evening during rush hour trying to return our rental car (shoot me) but with less than 24 hours we didn't have much time to waste. Dinner at Mundoaka (fantastic recommendation from our Airbnb hosts) and then we rested our weary heads before a morning of sightseeing.
We hit Zagreb starting in Jelačić Square, pictured above.
As the rain picked up again, we dodged into a one of the weirdest ways to lose a few hours, The Museum of Broken Relationships. This popular exhibit shows artifacts from failed relationships, mostly romantic. Many of funny, many heartbreaking, some just plain weird. It was interesting and well worth the visit.
We strolled through the stone gate, the market (with the red umbrellas at each stand!), to the cathedral and back to Mundoaka for lunch (it was the good). And from the window, I saw this...
I clearly need this umbrella because srsly.
- Transportation: Like any big city, you don't need a car and the main sights are easy to see by foot. Driving in the city is rough, and the train station nearby connects to all major cities.
- Food: Mundoaka was amazing! We highly recommend. Plus, anything you can eat at the market.
- Walking Guide: Rick Steves for life. We could have seen more if we had more time, but I felt like we saw really everything we wanted to.
- Accommodations: We stayed here which was an easy walk to the main part of the city and super affordable. If you don't have an Airbnb account, use this link to get $35 off your first stay.
*it rained almost constantly, so my pictures in Zagreb are few.
