Zagreb has plenty and different kind of accommodations to offer, from good quality Hostels to luxurious Hotels. There are many good restaurants offering tradition Croatian dishes
but also modern European/Mediterranean cuisine. The advent market of Zagreb has been elected the best Christmas market in Europe for three years in a row!
The city offers public transport like buses and trams, which are a good alternative to taxi’s. Zagreb is easy to reach by car via the highways from Slovenia and Hungary, but many tourists arrive by plane at the in 2017 newly opened airport. From there you can take a direct bus line to city centre.
