Zagreb is the capital and largest city of Croatia. Although often overlooked as a travel destination, Zagreb is the center 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 bus companies depart Zagreb daily for cities like Dubrovnik, Split, Vienna, and Berlin.

Famously described as "the pearl of the Adriatic," Dubrovnik is a city located on the southern coast of Croatia. You might recognize Dubrovnik as King's Landing from "Game of Thrones," but this city is filled with a history and culture all its own within the iconic city walls.

Take a walk through the Old Town to discover the city's true essence. In the main square, you'll find the iconic bell tower, as well as Orlando's Column, the Church of Saint Blaise, and a statue of Dubrovnik's most famous playwright, Marin Držić. You can even take one of the many available guided walking tours to see some of the lesser-known areas of the Old Town. If you prefer to forge your own path, walking the city walls is the easiest way to get your bearings. Enjoy magnificent views of the city and coastline along the 1,940-meter walkway and stop for refreshments at open-terrace cafes along the way.

After exploring Dubrovnik's various historical landmarks, take a break by unwinding on the beach. One of the most appealing beaches in the area is Lapad beach, thanks to a pedestrian zone opposite the aquamarine waters with several bars and restaurants.

Unlike Daenerys, you won't need dragons to get to King's Landing - er, Dubrovnik. Dubrovnik Airport provides international air travel through many major airlines, and several bus providers stop at the city's station from nearby towns.
