“Zagreb is teeming with museums, galleries, theatres, cinemas and architectural curios, from the 16th-century Gornji Grad (old town/upper town) to a lower town replete with Austro-Hungarian art nouveau and equally beguiling socialist-style haunts. Throw in a cafe (caffe)/salon (kavana) culture, an enchanting boho heritage and a rescinded smoking-ban (because too many people stopped going out), and you have a scene ideal for the arty traveller,” writes the popular paper.
British Airways will launch this weekend its direct service between the UK and Croatian capitals, ahead of the expected boom in travellers to Croatia when they join the EU. BA will fly daily to Zagreb from London Heathrow.
