Zagreb Culture and history on every street corner

Discover an inspiring city trip easily accessible from Edmonton by exploring the capital of Croatia – Zagreb – with a flight through Amsterdam from KLM Royal Dutch Airlines. Admire the centuries old cathedral of Zagreb, take a ride in a cable car and sip a drink on a patio by the flower market. At night, enjoy a delicious dinner in one of the city’s many fabulous restaurants.

Charming Streets and Lively Markets

The charming streets of Gornji Grad are the perfect starting place for a sightseeing tour of Zagreb. The old city is home to lovely historic buildings, cosy cafes and numerous interesting museums. Here you will also find Zagreb’s largest market, the Dolac market. Farmers from surrounding villages come here to sell their homemade cheeses, home-grown vegetables and fresh eggs. The Zagreb Cathedral on Kaptol is the tallest building in Croatia and the most monumental religious building in the Gothic style southeast of the Alps.

Beautiful Nature and Exciting Nightlife

Zagreb is surrounded by beautiful nature. Medvednica Nature Park is a popular year-round leisure area. For more nature, visit Jarun Lake and spend the day rowing, sailing or walking. There are many restaurants and clubs on the lake shore where you can dance the night away. For a cultural evening, reserve tickets to a performance in the lovely National Theatre of Croatia. Afterwards sip a festive cocktail in one of the many bars along Tkalčićeva street or on Preradovića square.

Journey to the Coast and Split

Feel the wind in your hair on the beach at Bačvice, admire Roman art in the Archaeological Museum and shop up a storm in the Mall of Split. Climb to the top of the forest-clad Marjan hill; the view over the deep-blue Adriatic Sea is magical! The ancient walls, alleys and squares form the heart of the city; the perfect place to wander at your leisure. Stroll from the Bronze Gate to the Peristylium and admire the impressive Egyptian Sphinx. Descend into the catacombs to browse the souvenir stands. At night, the many patios along the boulevard are the ideal spot to watch a gorgeous sunset over the Adriatic Sea.

Island Hopping

Croatia boasts more than a thousand islands, and Split is the perfect home base to visit some of the most beautiful ones. Take the ferry to Hvar with its charming citadel and romantic fields of lavender or explore the pristine beaches of the idyllic Pakleni Islands. The island of Vis welcomes visitors with delicious local wine and seafood as you stroll along deserted Roman and Greek ruins. Most islands are within 1.5 to 2 hours from Split; perfect for a day trip!

King's Landing

Walls are built to protect treasures, and in Dubrovnik this is particularly accurate, with 1,940 metres of stone surrounding one of the world’s most beautiful cities. This destination may look familiar as “King’s Landing” from Game of Thrones. Walk along its main street, Stradun, whose stone pavement has been polished smooth by feet that have walked it for hundreds of years. The city’s glorious walls, fortresses and bastions offer a view of the magical Elaphite islands, scattered like pearls in the azure of the sea. These islands feature subtropical vegetation, expansive pine tree forests and olive groves, all surrounded by amazing sandy beaches.

Travel Through Time in Dubrovnik

From the Onofrio Fountain to the City bell tower, the filigree-like Gothic and Renaissance facades of the Sponza Palace and the Ducal Palace, the Baroque church of St. Blasius, the Cathedral of the Assumption of Our Lady, or St. Ignatius and the Jesuit College, every step in this town will travel you through time. If you come during the Summer Festival, you will be able to listen to the immortal monologue of the unfortunate Danish prince ringing from the nearby Lovrijenac Fortress, perched atop a 37 metre high cliff.
