Where I stayed
However the countryside is very pretty.. much greener and hillier than Hungary. Zagreb is not really a city that comes to mind as a hot travel destination, which is maybe partly why I enjoyed it so much. The city is quite small (around 600,000 people) and compact, but full of beatufil buildings and cool shops and cafes. It seems that everyone in Zagreb goes out for a coffee on a weekend morning (after going to the fresh food market).
The city is nice and colourful with pretty parks and cool buildings in the old town. From the hill which forms the centre of the old town (there are actually two) you can view the outer part of the city complete with communist uglyness..
Its hard to say what I liked about Zagreb.. everything was just nice.. no hassle, little tourism, pretty setting and a good hostel (Buzz, run by two japanese guys). I also met some interesting people and had a fun few nights... and good food (pizza and pasta).
