A welcome at Zagreb International Airport followed by a half an hour’s drive to Westin Zagreb, a 5 star hotel situated less than a kilometer from all central squares. For the first afternoon in Zagreb we recommend one or two town’s shopping centers closest to the central town square Ban Jelačić Square (like Kaptol Center in Nova Ves Street and Flower Center at Flower Square) or numerous boutiques in Ilica Street, the third longest street in Zagreb spanning 5.66 kilometers of shops, restaurants and cultural sites from Ban Jelačić Square westwards. For the first evening in Zagreb we recommend one or two Zagreb’s authentic restaurants or cake shops (like Vinodol Restaurant, Kaptol Klet Restaurant, Medvedgrad Pub & Brewery, Pivana Pub & Brewery, Zagreb Cake Shop and Vincek Cake Shop).
A breakfast at the hotel followed by an Upper Town guided tour in the vicinity of Ban Jelačić Square that includes: a visit to Zagreb Cathedral, the most monumental and the most impressive Gothic-style sacral building southeast of the Alps, with the history dating back as far as 1093 (only individual visits allowed); a funicular ride to Strossmayer Promenade, a delightful tree alley setting with a stunning panorama of Zagreb; a visit to St. Mark’s Square, the home of the Croatian Parliament and the crossroad of the surrounding churches and museums; a short stroll through the Stone Gate, a charming shrine and once the eastern gate to medieval Gradec Town; and finally a stroll down Tkalčić Street, one of the two major hubs of bustling street activity full of history and packed with cafés and restaurants. For the second afternoon in Zagreb we recommend one or two permanent exhibitions of the accessible museums in the vicinity of the hotel and Ban Jelačić Square (like the Technical Museum, Ferdinand Budicki Car Museum, Mimara Museum and Klovićevi Dvori Gallery) and a magnificent view of the town at Zagreb Eye viewpoint (pre-booking required). For the second evening in Zagreb and some soaking up of the local atmosphere we recommend either the rock clubs Booze and Blues and Ribnjak or the dance clubs H20 and Coffee Inn, e.g.
