I had no idea about what Zagreb would be like outside of some initial research and viewing some pictures of the Croatian Capital. Not really grabbing my interest, I still placed in my travel destinations for access to various parts of Croatia that I wanted to visit and Zagreb is the central axis as a transit hub. I enjoyed visiting the city and my first Impressions of Zagreb, Croatia were quite positive to this gorgeous city.
Touring the capital city of Zagreb
Arriving the main train station was pleasant enough, but I thought the main station was fairly compact and nondescript. No worries, I’m not here to hang out at the station so I eagerly ventured outside and was immediately greeted with a wonderful flower and fruit market in the nearby square. It didn’t take too long to find my lodgings for the night with exceptional vistas of the city. It looked like most of the city especially in the historic district had a fairly low skyline except for the main cathedral sticking out boldly in the central area.
The main market in the historic district is wonderful to visit and very colorful with all the fall harvest produce and finished products that you can sample and take away for a picnic or gifts of your visit to this lovely capital city.
It’s really fun to walk around a very compact and historic city like Zagreb in both the upper and lower town or the old center. I’m sure there are many wonderful discoveries and cool places to visit in the capital city and I’m sure you will find this city quite fascinating and worth visiting when you are in Croatia.
