Live like a local, live Zagreb.
In Zagreb there is a strong coffee culture. So caffeine addicts will be in their element in the Croatian capital. It was one of the first thing that I noticed when I was wandering through Zagreb. The endoses row of café terraces filled with people sipping their coffee. With an electric mix of Italian, Turkish and Austro-Hungarian influences, the coffee culture is here steeped in history.
The social role of coffee is crucial. It’s all about socialising, doing business, catching up with friends. And unlike as in other bustling cities, coffee is not just a quick pick-me-up but an event, only to take at a café and never to take away! Keep that in mind.
For those who aren’t so keen on coffee, there are other popular beverages on the Zagreb drinking scene. After sunset the city center turns into an open air party scene. The best place to go for Zagreb’s nightlife is on Tkalciceva street. A buzzing street lined with bar and restaurant terraces.
Beer drinkers will love the huge selection of locally brewed craft beers – starting at just €2 to €3 for half a litre at the craft room. Wine lovers have to make a stop at Bornstein, Croatia’s oldest winery.
Get a taste of local life by browsing Dolac Market, a wonderful, fruit and vegitable market, located at a beautiful location in the old town. Buy yourself some fruit and pastel and enjoy the lively atmosphere.
