Ilica 63, 10000, Zagreb, Croatia
Zagreb is a coffee town, certainly. Cafes abound. But the espresso isn't always quite up to the standards of third-wave coffee snobs who require 3 to 5 perfectly pulled ristrettos per day while on holiday (ahem). The clean lines and white motif of...

Nova ves 4, 10000, Zagreb, Croatia
Just look at those scampi! They were delicious. Baltazar is a seafood restaurant with a sister place called Melchior, that's more of a meat restaurant. You can order from either menu, which causes a certain amount of confusion (and a lot of...

Who would guess that the sunset in Zagreb will be so beautiful? The sky was changing it's color constantly using every possible shape of pink and purple. I literally couldn't leave the square in front of the Zagreb Cathedral on Kaptol till it got...

Zrinjevac, 10000, Zagreb, Croatia
After an incredibly delicious and inexpensive dinner, my husband and I walked back to our hotel around 10pm. As we are walking, I think I hear music. I have had a few glasses of wine, it could be just in my head....but, no! It is music! Even...

Trg bana Josipa Jelačića, 10000, Zagreb, Croatia
If this photo were snapped in an alleyway, or on a mysterious street, it would make the area seem ominous, but even on the snowy and cold winter day as I wandered through the wide cobbled streets around Ban Jelačić Square, I found warmth...
