Local Heroes signature trip Best of Croa

DAY 1 - 3

ZAGREB

Zagreb is the capital of Croatia and with its 1 million inhabitants also by far the largest city in Croatia. The city is developing at a rapid pace and there are all kinds of festivals throughout the year. 

Ban Jelačić square is the beating heart of Zagreb and from here you can actually explore all interesting parts of the city on foot. St. Stephen's Cathedral, the Dolac farmers market and the "upper town" close by. All trams stop on the square, so the more distant parts of the city are also easily accessible. 

 

According to statistics, Zagreb has the highest museum density in the world. In this abundance we highlight two: In the city museum in a somewhat classic setting on the north side of the center, you get to know Zagreb in all its aspects, from rare to ordinary, from a long time ago to the most contemporary. The "Museum of the Broken Hearts" offers a mixture of humorous, emotional and sometimes poignant memorabilia of past loves. In the adjacent restaurant of the same name, the statement that love goes through the stomach is fully realized. Zagreb is also one of the first cities in which the battle with grafitti was not fought, but the collaboration with the art painters was achieved.

NATIONAL PARK PLITVICE

The Plitvice Lakes are magical nature reserve that has been under the UNESCO World Heritage List. It is a truly impressive  area, where one scenery is even more beautiful than the next. It is a large park with a total of 16 lakes, divided into the 'upper lakes' and the 'lower lakes.

 

The spectacular routes lead you along streams and waterfalls. Everywhere you look you will see the unbelievably blue and crystal-clear water.

ŠIBENIK

Where cities like Zadar and Dubrovnik attract a lot of visitors, Šibenik stays a bit behind for some incomprehensible reason. It is the underdog of the Adriatic coast even though it is the one of the very few cities to have two buildings under UNESCO protection: the famous St James Cathedral and St. Nicholas Fort.

The surrounding nature ismagnificent: the beautiful Kornati islands National Park are easily accessible while the world-famous waterfalls of Krka are only a fifteen-minute drive away.

 

The city also has a great culinary trump: restaurant Pelegrini is one of the best in all of Croatia and was awarded a Michelin star in March 2018.
