Zagreb, Croatia

Zagreb is the capital of Croatia and has a small town feel. Most people who visit Croatia just head to the coast, but I felt that it would be intriguing to explore Zagreb.

The city has a small old quarter on two hills. One hill is the religious quarter containing the Gothic Cathedral surrounded by the remains of a Medieval wall. The other hill now contains many government buildings, including the Parliament and Presidential Palace. An interesting observation is that Croatia is not in the EU, yet there were EU flags on several government buildings. My favorite sight was St Mark’s Church, as its roof contains the coat of arms of Zagreb, Dalmatia and Slavonia, which are regions of Croatia.
