Cult Zagreb Sandwich Bar Going Strong After Quarter Of A Century


Many fast-food takeaway bars in Croatia’s capital Zagreb have come and gone over the years, but one remains steadfast, feeding hungry office workers and nightclubbers for a quarter of a century.

Cult sandwich bar Pingvin, located on a street named after one of the world’s greatest inventors Nikola Tesla in the heart of the city, first opened its doors way back in 1987 and celebrates 25 years in operation this year.

The 24/7 sandwich bar serves a wide range of freshly grilled sandwiches, from steak, chicken, turkey and ham, to a range of vegetarian options with a host of fillings. Pingvin has especially been a hit with those peckish after a night out in town and seeing ques 4-rows-deep at 2am is a common site.
