Youthful, diverse, energetic and bursting with character, Zagreb is one of the most human capitals in Europe. While preserving a small-town friendliness and a relaxed atmosphere, it holds all the excitements of a modern capital. The city centre is jam-packed with eclectic restaurants, bars, shops, unique museums, galleries and beautiful green spaces to be explored on foot. Even an aimless stroll leads to discovering some of the city’s major attractions. As the air grows crisp and the leaves begin to change, the smells of autumn and spectacular foliage make it a perfect time to “fall” in love with Zagreb.

Start planning your fall trip to Zagreb to build lasting memories and spend your vacation in a safe environment with plenty of outdoors activities and events. Martina Bienenfeld, Ph.D. CEO Zagreb Tourist Board
