A three-day weekend planned out for Croatia’s compact capital Zagreb

Croatia’s capital is perfectly sized for strolls, drinking coffee in the permanently full cafés, popping into museums and galleries, and enjoying the summer’s outdoor concerts.
Zagreb Cathedral, in the Kaptol quarter, is currently being restored

Friday evening


As the oldest part of Zagreb, the Upper Town (Gornji Grad), has landmark buildings and churches from the earlier centuries of Zagreb’s history. Head to Kaptol Square for a look at the Cathedral of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, whose twin spires soar over the city, and make sure you take a peek at the Stone Gate, the eastern entrance to medieval Gradec Town, now a shrine.


For cocktails and chic bars head to this Upper Town street (formally known as Ulica Ivana Tkalčića). Highlights include Cica at number 18, a tiny bar with cutting edge work by local artists plus 25 kinds of rakija (fruit brandy). Over at number 52, head down the spiral staircase at Funk to a small basement with stone vaulted ceilings, DJs spinning house, jazz, funk and electronic music.
