The capital of Croatia is a beautiful place to see with a lot of sights and attractions. Checking it out can be hot work, especially in the middle of summer.
No better way to cool down or take a break from sightseeing than to grab an ice cream. Zagreb is home to some fantastic ice cream parlours and we have picked out just 6 top ones.
Big portions in a cozy space or on a pretty little terrace in the center of the town overlooking Vlaška street and the main square with the most delicious ice cream in hand… Dream come true. It offers some interesting flavours, such as the one bearing the cafes name (Amelie) as well as the “ordinary” ones, and it does not disappoint.

An elegant space awaits you in Masarykova street where you can find a wide range of excellent ice cream flavours. Chocolate mixed with cinnamon or menthol, cheesecake or a simple vanilla and strawberry will win you over in no time.
Prices are around 10 kuna as well, but you sure won’t get a small portion. Eventually, you will end up full, but a craving for more.

Its long tradition made Orijent a well-known place. Even though it is not in the nearest center of the city, located near Kvatrić, it offers some delicious flavours. Don’t be surprised by the interior, it’s not extremely beautiful, but the ice cream is what counts! Interesting combinations such as the flavour of lavender and honey sure makes an appealing call, so be sure not to miss it.
