Doors of the Lower Town
Every time we pass through a physical door, something unknown is bound to happen. Doors can be symbolic, intriguing, or simply eye-capturing. Let us wander the streets of Zagreb, and search for some pretty entrances. Just like we did in the previous years, remember?
23 Things to Do in Zagreb in ‘23
To kick off this year, I prepared a list of 23 Things to Do in Zagreb in 2023. Expand it, or shrink it, use it over the course of a year or in a single day. Hopefully, you will find some inspiration in it, and by the end of the year, we can check our scores!
Ice skating through Zagreb
Advent in Zagreb delights visitors because the event doesn’t have only one main location of a Christmas market. Instead, the festivities and small lively markets are spread out throughout the wide city center. You think you’ve found the best location, yet just around the corner, there’s another one!
Entering the new year old Zagreb style
The end of the year brings many curious traditions all over the world.

Don’t you love the feeling of sliding into an alley, and as a reward, finding yourself face-to-face with a charming discovery? Imagine if these discoveries had a touch of Christmas!
Welcome to the Joyful Season!

They have just embraced the autumn, not even noticing the festive season is just around the corner. The famous Advent in Zagreb starts tomorrow, and it's going to be larger than ever.
Medvednica off the beaten path
With the new cable car, it’s as easy as ever to visit mountain Medvednica above Zagreb. For those who like solitary exploration, the area around the top cable car station might not be the best choice. There are plenty of lesser-visited, unknown, and nature-immersive places on the mountain. Today, we’re going to go off the beaten path for a photo exploration of the easternmost mountain trails.

As the first lines of a well-known local children’s poem by Grigor Vitez say if you’re fond of playfulness and of the forest’s peace, come and take a walk with me through Maksimir.
All Saints' Day is approaching. There is one place that I love to recommend around this time of the year - the main Zagreb cemetery Mirogoj.
People Who Loved the Mountain
Have you ever been to the Zagreb mountain? If you have, how well do you know it? A lot of Zagreb locals have a custom of regularly hiking up there. But there are not many who know it by heart.
