Summary

Zagreb is the latest in the series of Bradt city guides to some of the world's most fascinating yet less well- known city destinations. With its old-world Austro- Hungarian feel, lively street caf?s and beautiful setting, Croatia's capital is the perfect short-break destination. The city's compact size and unspoilt charm make it an ideal weekend break, with a sparkling cultural scene offering everything from affordable world-class opera to free summer concerts.
