Zagreb in our own words...

We have had this little city for more than 900 years. It has been raided by whoever wanted to burn some houses and kill some inhabitants, so, from all kinds of Asian tribes, to Huns and Hungarians, this city welcomed many conquerors. Its medieval core is still quite well preserved and if you can walk up a hill you will be able to admire its charm taking a stroll among medieval buildings in a place we here call "Gornji grad" (upper town). When you get down to Ban Jelacic square, which is the very centre of Zagreb, you are in the part of the town that was mainly developed during the time Croatia was a part of the Habsburg monarchy. Some interesting neoclassicist buildings and 200-year-old urban planning are quite a lovely sight to see. It is actually our favourite place in Zagreb - Zrinjevac park - with its gazebo where on a rare occasion you can hear some very pleasant musicians play. Of course, there are enough places to stop and drink a little beer or schnaps, or have a glass of wine if you are wine lovers. Sightseeing could get a bit boring and exhausting task otherways. That's it for now, more to come later!
