Zagreb was the final part of my Croatia adventure and I was looking forward to it. We arrived in Zagreb by 10pm so we didn’t do much that evening (after hiking in Plitvice lakes we were tired). We stayed in Apartment Simple Teslina which I highly recommend. The only issue is the hot water runs out quickly and takes a while to heat up (seems like a Croatian problem? We had the same issue in Split). The studio apartment was spotless though.  It’s a 5 min walk form the main square and there are lots of restaurants around.

We did a free walking tour with Free Spirit Tours which I highly recommend. Zagreb is soaked in history and not at all what I expected. The walking tour allowed us to visit most of Zagreb and if you have one day only it’s worth doing.

After the tour, we spent more time walking around and looking for a traditional Croatia dish. We went to Batak Grill to have the Cevapcici, a typical Croatian dish.

There wasn’t much we did in Zagreb so we spent the rest of the day shopping and chilling, preparing for an early start the next day. It was also in Zagreb we had our second request for a picture lol, again from another tourist and much older. We also had an incident in a restaurant where this man would not stop staring at us! He was Croatian and came with his partner and it was slightly uncomfortable after a while, they were sitting close to us. Lucky for us we done with our meal so this encounter didn’t last long.  I swear I heard him mutter black girls under his breath when we walked past but my friend said she didn’t hear anything. I was have been pissed if I was the girl he was with! But then again they both could be of the same mindset.

I prefer Split to Zagreb, I liked the vibes there much better than Zagreb.

So that’s all folks! I hope you have found these posts helpful and you are inspired to visit Croatia!

PS we found an African restaurant in Zagreb– I would have never expected that! We didn’t go to it though lol


Catch you later
