Zagreb -An Old City with a Young Soul
The Croatian capital Zagreb is young and playful at heart, despite the almost thousand year-old history of its old town. By day, the city beats to the pulse of its thriving businesses, letting its hair down come sunset. And despite being a thoroughly modern metropolis, the locals welcome visitors with traditional Croatian hospitality.
Zagreb’s old town is a true feast for your senses, where you can sample some of the country’s most renowned restaurants and coffee shops in the midst of classic façades, lush gardens and striking Neo-Gothic buildings. The city boasts a charming medieval ‘old city’ with architecture and cobbled streets.
Zagreb has a complicated history – and it doesn’t hide it. In fact, Zagreb has more museums per capita than anywhere else in the world, giving it the nickname of ‘the city of museums’.
The national currency is the kuna, with one kuna equal to 100 lipas. You can exchange money at any of the country’s banks, bureaux de change, post offices and at almost all travel agents, hotels and campsites. The majority of establishments and ATMs will also accept credit cards such as Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Diners, etc.
