Hotels in Zagreb County, Croatia - your base to discover the city.
Zagreb HotelsZagreb’s spectacular double spired cathedral dominates the city’s skyline, reaching above the jumbled buildings of its Old Town, and beckoning you to come and throw yourself into Croatia’s quirky capital. Grand Austro-Hungarian architecture stands sternly next to the city’s blossoming parks, while the shining steel of contemporary museums and galleries glare in the sun - giving this city plenty of layers for you to peel back. Don’t worry if the lack of a beach bothers you - the sparkling Adriatic, and beautiful fishing village of Rivinj, are within day-tripping distance. Things to seeStart your Zagreb journey at Jelacic Square, where Croatia’s national hero sits proudly on an iron horse, with a sword raised defiantly above his head. The square reverberates with pounding drums, as marching bands parade through the lively meeting point, and coffee machines squeal in cafes. The cathedral is close by, but you might find the smaller St. Mark's Church more enchanting, with its red, white, blue and black mosaic roof tiles, displaying the Croatian and Zagreb coats of arms proudly. The city’s central parks also beam with colour, and in summer, Park Bundek fills with locals who sit to read books, float frisbees through the air, and lean back on the pebbly beach to giggle with friends. For a truly unique experience, visit the Museum of Broken Relationships. Created using donations from the city’s residents, the museum’s collection of innocuous, but deeply personal, items have fascinating stories to tell. The items range from the bizarre - like the toaster that was stolen to teach a cheating boyfriend a lesson - to the achingly sad - like the new dress that was bought in anticipation of a romantic meal, which would turn out to be a married couple’s last. Hotels in ZagrebGrand hotels sit inside beautiful neoclassical buildings, adding their own charm to the streets of Zagreb. Choose from 5-star options, where you can swim in swanky pools, before being taken on a wellness journey in spas that flickers with candlelight. Get ready for a big night out in a spotlit bathroom, with a huge mirror, or kick back in your air conditioned room with a bottle of wine, and order some room service. WiFi is ubiquitous here, and you’ll find a fully stocked minibar and tea and coffee making facilities waiting in the rooms of practically all the hotels in Zagreb.Where to stayThe Old Town is, without doubt, the city’s most charming area - and a stay here lets you mingle with the locals along the hip Tkalciceva street. Sip crisp white Kraljevina wines, or cut into Zagreb Steaks - veal fried in breadcrumbs - while sitting outside and soaking up the humming atmosphere. Zagreb isn’t just about sun and magnificent architecture, though - it’s also a great place to get active. Winter’s snow transforms Medvednica Mountain into an icy wonderland, and you can spray powder into the air behind you, while slaloming down its testing ski slopes. Hang around in the mountain top bars for a beer or two, and you’ll be treated to the sight of the city sparkling into light, as the last of the daylight fades away. How to get to ZagrebZagreb International Airport is well connected with other European destinations, and offers the easiest way to access the city. Busses connect the terminal with the central bus station, or you can hop in a taxi to reach the city in under 20 minutes. Embark on a great European train journey to Vienna, or roll down to Split, in around 6 hours. Jumping on and off the city’s tram system is the easiest way to travel around Zagreb itself.
