The city of Zagreb, capital of Croatia, is on the historic and political threshold between East and West, illustrating both the continental and Mediterranean spirit of the nation it represents.
The city is protected from the cold northern winds by the mountain of Medvednica and opens up to the rest of the world thanks to a spacious plain and the Sava river. Zagreb, with a population of nearly one million, contains almost a quarter of the entire population of Croatia. Over the centuries, the city was inhabited by people coming from all over Europe; and, in recent years, by people coming from different parts of Croatia, ensuring a rich cultural life. Zagreb is a safe city whose doors are always open.
However you find your way to Zagreb, getting around town is quite easy. Taxi services are well regulated and priced competitively. The trams will give you a sense of local life and a fun way to do some sightseeing beyond the center.
The price of services and goods are below the European average, but you can still fare better if you venture beyond the very center of town. Shops are open until at least 8 pm everyday except Sunday, with some exceptions. Restaurants usually close by 11 pm, while bars often do so around 1 am. The easiest quality breakfast can be found in bakeries all around town, choose the one that smells best to you.
The Croatian language is hard to master in theory, but it is composed of many German and English words, so you may find many familiar sounds. Besides, almost everyone speaks English to a degree. Tourism is on the rise in Zagreb so there are many labels in Croatian and English. Plus, the best way to meet locals is to ask for some language help.
