Motorhome rental – the perfect way to see Zagreb
The capital of Crotia, Zagreb is famous for many things. Not only is it a cultural hub, but the Austro-Hungarian architecture is a step back to a golden time. A buzzing nightlife and party atmosphere is also emerging, as Zagreb adapts to its growing reputation as a popular tourism destination. Situated along the Sava river, if you’re renting a motorhome in Croatia, Zagreb is a must-see.

Tips for driving in Croatia
The weather forecast in Croatia can get extremely hot, so be sure to always have plenty of water. Road standards vary, so take your time – hairpins are common, especially in mountainous areas. Drink-driving is a serious no-no, with a very low alcohol limit, so just avoid it all together. Like most major European cities, Zagreb can get very busy during rush morning and evening rush hour – stay away!
A city on the rise, attractions of Zagreb
The cultural hub and capital of Croatia, if you’re travelling to this beautiful country you can’t go past Zagreb. Ban Jelacic Square, the Upper Town, University Library, National Theatre, Cathedral, City and Contemporary Museums are just a handful of stunning buildings you must-see. A Habsburg-era city, the historical landscape is a remarkable one. Gornji Grad and Kaptol is a complex of museums, galleries and churches.
However, it’s not a destination rooted in the past. Modern art and boutique shopping areas (Ulicni Ormar is a very trendy store)are commonplace, with restaurants and bars popping up everywhere, while the central open market, Dolac, showcases local ingredients and dishes to make your mouth water. Prasac, Zinfandel’s and Apetit City are slightly more expensive restaurant eating options if you’re putting away the campervan stove, while bars such as Sedmica, The Beerija and Bacchus Jazz Bar are always busy and cool. For those of you wanting to hit the clubs, Sirup, Masters and KSET are top of the tree.
