Zagreb

— 1 night

Little Vienna

Zagreb boasts a combination of Austro-Hungarian and Socialist architecture, but it is beloved for its outdoor cafe culture.
On the 17th (Tue), take in the local highlights with Walking tours, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Mark's Church, and then test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms. Here are some ideas for day two: admire the striking features of Cathedral of the Assumption, don't miss a visit to Tkalciceva, don't miss a visit to Ban Josip Jelačić Square, then see the interesting displays at Museum of Broken Relationships, and finally appreciate the extensive heritage of Upper Town (Gornji Grad).

Plan trip to Zagreb with our itinerary maker to find out where to go and what to do.
