How Far from?
After the destruction and conflict of the 90s, Zagreb is emerging as a thriving capital and popular holiday destination. Croatia’s economy is flourishing, meaning it has been possible to invest heavily in the city’s transport, accommodation and general infrastructure.

The old part of the city is mostly medieval in style, with cobbled streets and many impressive constructions. There are also many trendy shops, bars and restaurants which have recently opened to cater to Zagreb’s new image.
Still in the old town is the Croatian History Museum, which is housed in a Baroque palace that used to be the residence of the baronial families. Built at the end of the 18th century, it now contains over 140,000 pieces, amongst them heraldry, fine art pieces, and religious artifacts.

The Croatian National Theatre, a beautiful building dating back to 1894, stages world class operas, ballets and theatre performances. It was opened in 1895 by the Emperor Franz-Joseph I, and is considered a national treasure.

Just outside of Zagreb is the Andautonia Archaelogical Park, where the remains of ancient Roman city Andautonia can be seen. Archaeologists are still at work on the site, however it is possible to see the old city baths, the main street, and the colonnades.
