Our suggestion for one day sightseeing Zagreb: Start at Jelacic Square and head to the Upper Town for a taste of Old Zagreb. Highlights include visiting the Cathedral, the City Museum, Dolac Market, the Stone Gate, the Gallery of Naive Art, the Museum of Broken Relationships and St Mark’s Church. More to see in Zagreb: Park Zrinjevac, Maksimir Park, Jarun Lakes, Mirogoj Cemetery etc. Our suggestion for days trips from Zagreb: Samobor,beautiful small city,only a 30-minute bus ride from Zagreb. Varazdin, the gorgeous baroque architecture dates from when Varazdin was briefly Croatia’s capital, reachable by train or bus. Plitvice Lakes National Park, the only one of Croatia’s national parks, within easy reach of Zagreb, the lakes and waterfalls of Plitvice make a truly wonderous excursion from the capital.
