Zagreb just popped out as a destination nr. 1 in one of most recognized world class travel guides this year. After being elected the most beautiful advent town this may or may not come as a surprise, but it will definitely leave a positive mark.
Despite strong European competition that includes numerous exotic places, Zagreb made it to the top! “Zagreb tops our list because it ticks all of these boxes, Croatia is one of Europe’s hottest destinations right now but many people head straight to the coast, meaning they miss out on visiting a city that has a dynamic cultural offering, a thriving food and drink scene.” – said Tom Hall (Lonely Planet’s editorial director).
“In a country famous for its dazzling coastline, Croatia’s inland capital has been sneaking under the tourist radar for decades. …now’s the time to discover the delights of Zagreb.”
