WHAT TO DO IN ZAGREB
Whether you’re looking to feast on the best of Croatian cuisine, sip on cocktails in the sun, or explore the winding streets of local stores, you’ll find yourself at home here. Zagreb has an art scene to be envied, hop on the short tram ride to the Museum of Contemporary Art to find some of the most iconic pieces from international and local artists alike. Looking for a unique museum experience? The Croatian capital has it covered. Zagreb prides itself on offering an array of unconventional galleries and exhibitions displaying everything from 80s memorabilia, tokens of love from relationships gone by, and even relics from epic nights out among friends.
A first stop on any visit to the Croatian capital is walking through Zagreb’s Upper Town district. Explore cobblestone streets, medieval squares, or duck into a café and people watch. Don’t miss St. Mark’s Church, one of the city’s oldest buildings or the Kamenita vrata (stone gate).
The cathedral is Zagreb’s most recognisable, defining monument and the tallest building in Croatia. It’s an impressive feat of neo-Gothic architecture, built in the 11th century and absolutely breathtaking to see in person.
Ban Jelačić Square
This historic central square of Zagreb, Croatia, was built in 1641 and is the city’s most famous landmark. Featuring a statue of its namesake founder, plus 19th-century buildings, cafes and restaurants, it remains a staple meeting place for locals and tourists.
If you’re after a lively spot with great food, shopping, and overall vibes, Tkalčićeva Street is the way to go. Lined with pretty buildings and often buzzing with live music, the long street is always busy and great place to spend an afternoon or evening.
Zrinjevac Park is part of “Lenuci’s horseshoe” — one of seven squares in Donji grad, and one of the city’s most romantic spots. Come for flower beds, water fountains, or to take a break from visiting local museums and galleries nearby.

The square embodies the historical essence of the Upper Town, with the iconic church adding a touch of medieval charm to this central hub.

Comparison Rates: The Comparison Rate must be found on a website available to be booked by the general public other than Radissonhotels.com within 24 hours of booking your hotel room on Radissonhotels.com and at least 48 hours prior to midnight hotel local time of your arrival date.

The Comparison Rate must still be available at the time Customer Care validates the claim.
The rates will be compared net of any taxes, gratuities, or any other fees associated with the room rate; however, if the Radissonhotels.com rate has taxes included, we will verify that the total cost of your Comparison Rate is lower so that prices are compared on a relative basis.

Claims will be denied when the difference between the Comparison Rate and the rate on Radissonhotels.com is less than 1USD, 1EUR or 1GBP or equivalent in the local currency of the hotel.
When a claim covers a stay for multiple, consecutive nights, the rates will be reviewed based on the average over the entire stay (the total consecutive nights stayed by the same guest or guests in the same hotel, regardless of the number of check-ins or check-outs or separate reservations). Comparison Rates applicable to only a portion of the reservation will not be honored.
If your reservation meets these criteria, let us know by submitting the claim form.
