Zagreb is the capital and largest city of Croatia. Although often overlooked as a travel destination, Zagreb is the centre of Croatia's art, culture, academic, and sports scene, providing visitors with much to explore. Plus, it's one of the cheapest capitals to visit in Central Europe!
Zagreb is divided into three areas: Gornji grad (upper town), which is over 1000 years old and hosts the Presidential palace as well as St Mark's Church; the Donji grad (lower town), home to 19th-century architecture, shops, theatres, cafes, and parks; and the Novi Zagreb (New Zagreb), which was developed post-World War II and is the main residential and business area of the city.
In what is known as the "city of museums," there is no shortage of fascinating places to shelter from the midday heat. The Museum of Broken Relationships is a unique but heartrending museum dedicated to lost love and the real stories of heartbreak. The Museum of Illusions offers a more lighthearted but equally compelling experience, with many deceiving and confusing exhibits on show.
Zagreb is well-connected to many other European cities and destinations throughout the continent. About 15 kilometers from the city center, Zagreb International Airport provides many national and international flight routes, and Zagreb Central Station is a major railway hub. Several coach companies depart Zagreb daily for cities like Dubrovnik, Split, Vienna, and Berlin.
Rome is a city rich in cultural heritage, as well as one of the most romantic destinations in Europe. To fully understand the city’s extraordinary history, visitors should take the time to visit the Capitoline Museums, where the collections include hundreds of sculptures as well as the Capitoline Wolf, the symbol of Rome itself. The famous Trevi’s Fountain is also on the must-see list of many travelers. Boasting an amazing baroque design with mythological motifs, the fountain is one of the most photogenic spots in the city, and it is located near the principal shopping area. If you wish to check out some of the city’s most iconic structures, head over to the Sistine Chapel, which houses the famous fresco by Michelangelo.
Rome is every foodie’s heaven. As you explore the city’s food scene, don’t hesitate to take the chance to try out a local specialty, artichokes. The best place to try these out is at Nonna Betta. For those who want to try the famous Roma coffee, Caffe Sant'Eustachio might be the right spot.
The principal train station in Rome is the Termini station. The main bus station is Roma Tiburtina. The city’s air services are fulfilled by three airports: Leonardo da Vinci International Airport, Rome Ciampino Airport, and Roma-Urbe, of which the Leonardo da Vinci International Airport is the largest.
