This is a nice square to visit in the heart of Zagreb. Do yourself a favour and go to the Kras shop for some magical sweets - especially napolitanke.

This was my eight time in Croatia and finally got to it's capital - Zagreb. The square is probably the only nice place in the city afterall. Although it's a simple, not very big rectangle. Better choose Belgrade or Ljubljana for visit..

This square is very wide and very open. It leads to the old town or some fine restaurants. Depending on which way you go. Big statue of the man who saw off the Hungarians many years ago.
