Eastern Europe & Russia
is a great city, let's hope not too many people discover it! It is a proud city with beautiful proud people. Only on my third visit did I discover there was an entire old city hidden away behing the main square. Simply stunning. Driving north towards Hungary you find yourself travelling along a windy fairy tale of a road, between tall trees - a moving experience!
While it might be a difficult city to fly into, once you are there you definitely know it has been worth the journey. The architecture, the laid back atmosphere, the outstanding food, the friendly locals...
's really a stunning place that so many people overlook when travelling around Europe! And it doesn't break the bank either, unlike many European cities. I know I will be back on my next travels!
is the capital of Croatia, but it has a small-town feel. It's very easy to get around and is one of the most relaxed capitals in Europe. Unless you're here to live the life, however, the sights of Zagreb can be done in a day (2 days including the museums).
You cannot stay one weekend in
and think that you can have your own complete opinion 'cause...you haven't seen it all. I have lived in Croatia for 21 years and I'm still exploring and finding something every year that I didn't know that we had! For staying in Zagreb, in my opinion the most important thing is to meet and get friendly with somebody smart from Zagreb. Because you can spend a fortune here, or you can spend very little money. I know a lot of people who actually LIVE IN Zagreb and can give you the right answer about things like: where is good blues/rock'n roll club, where I can eat the best "chevapi," where is the best cheap beer?
is one of the prettiest cities I have ever been to. I have lived there for nine years and I can assure you that you cannot see all it has to offer in two days. People there are friendly and if you get acquainted with someone who lives there they can introduce Zagreb to you. From parks to museums and even pastry shops, it is amazing, and if you are young and like to have fun, night life in Zagreb can be very satisfying. All you can do there is relax and have fun, I know I will when I go this summer there.
I just went to
for some cheap dental work as it's about less than half the price in the U.K. The local bread and cheese are very good, and the seafood is nearly the best in Europe and very cheap. Cheap accommodation is scarce but it's a beautiful city for a long weekend.
