Wonderful Dolac Market, a centerpiece of the Old Lower Town

Zagreb is the capital of Croatia and its only city with l million or more people. Zagreb is a wonderful walking city, filled with rich history, charming café-filled streets and more shoe stores than you have ever seen in your life! The city centre has an upper town: Gornji Grad and Donji Grad the Lower Town, which meet at Trg Bana Jelačića, the main square. Gornji Grad is made up of wonderful cobble-stone streets and buildings dating from medieval times up to the 19th century, including the katedrala (cathedral), Crkva Svetog Marka (St Marks’ Church), the Sabor (Croatian parliament), the Meštrović Atelier (Croatia’s most celebrated artist) and Dolac an incredible open-air Dolac Market is not to be missed (the fresh fish market is in its own building next to the market and under the market is a sprawling enclosed cheese, bread and meat market. Donji Grad is filled with a series of green squares framed by Austro-Hungarian buildings erected from the late 19th century onwards. But what’s with the incredible nasty graffiti all over town, even on private residences? Zagreb loves arts, theatre and music—but they need to clean up these eyesores.  If you are arriving in Zagreb and only have a few hours before catching a bus to Split, Dubrovnik, Pula,  etc ,  save the $60 taxi fare from the airport and take the clean and modern airport-to-city bus right into the center city, just $10. From there you can walk 30 meters to the bus terminal and buy your ticket—clean, fast, frequent and cheap.  But hey, why not stay in Zagreb a few days and explore the city and the region!
