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.

Situated at the southern tip of the Istrian peninsula, Pula is the largest city in Croatia's Istria County. Known for its Roman monuments and many summertime festivals, Pula is a vibrant coastal town with much to explore.

The most renowned attraction in Pula is the Roman Amphitheater. Once home to gladiatorial battles over 2,000 years ago, the amphitheater now stages many annual festivals and live concerts. The Roman Temple of Augustus also still stands in the city, and the small adjoining museum houses various stone carvings and relics from the 1st century.

For a taste of local life, visit the lively Pula Market. With around 60 stalls selling local fresh fish, meat, vegetables, and everything in between, the market is a great place to take a stroll and get to know the locals.

A trip to Pula would be incomplete without visiting one of its exceptionally scenic nearby beaches. One of the most popular is the Verudela peninsula, which can be easily accessed by bus from the city. Spend the day relaxing on the shingle beach in front of clear blue waters, or take shelter from the sun at Aquarium Pula.

Since the city is a popular destination, transport to Pula is well-established. Pula Airport welcomes many daily flights from various European cities. The sizable bus station allows for bus access from many points across Europe, and the train station provides routes to several major towns across Istria and Slovenia.
