The best time to visit our town Zagreb would be spring or autumn. The temperatures are pleasant and mild and the town is not crowded with tourists. However, if your travel plans fall in summer, watch out the temperatures and avoid sunny asfalt squares at noon. You can buy a hat at Dolac Market and hide yourself in one of numerous street cafés. Or, go for shopping to OKTOGON SHOPPING PASSAGE. For sheer class in a shopping area, this is hard to beat. So close to the main square, it is easy to miss it – but don’t. The centre of Oktogon passage has a wonderful stained glass roof shaped into eight angle form, latin word for it is OKTOGON. The shops here are quite expensive but good for window shopping. There is a Croata kravata shop- brand for ties, something really special and hm hm.. not cheap at all.

We had only 3 hours to see Zagreb and so realized that we would not be able to do it well on our own as the time was so limited. Inga showed us the most interesting places and we felt that in those several hours we got a good grip on Zagreb's history, culture and architecture. We would not have been able to do it without her. I'd like to add that by the very end of the tour (basically when the tour itself was already over) my granddaughter started to have a pretty strong allergic reaction to pollen in the air. Inga personally took us to the closest drug store and was there with us until she made sure we got the right medication. After that she suggested for us to have a cup of coffee and relax in the nearby cafe, Aida, where the pastries turned out to be the absolutely best pastries we ever had. All in all, Zagreb would've been a much bleaker experience without Inga!
