Zagreb

Croatia, Zagreb region

FoodHistoricCultureNight life1 night

Visit Croatia's capital city, home to amazing museums, green parks and gardens, renowned restaurants, and vibrant nightlife.

Zagreb is a city with a rich history dating from the Roman times to the present day. The oldest settlement in the urban area of the city is Andautonia, a Roman settlement in the place of today's Ščitarjevo. The name "Zagreb" is mentioned for the first time in 1094 at the founding of the Zagreb diocese of Kaptol, and Zagreb became a free royal town in 1242, whereas the origin of the name still remains a mystery in spite of several theories. In 1851 Zagreb had its first mayor, Janko Kamauf, and in 1945 it was made the capital of Croatia when the demographic boom and the urban sprawl made the city as it is known nowadays.

With its comfortable climate and gorgeous bay, this lively beach city also features a wealth of Roman relics and diverse architecture.

The city is best known for its many surviving ancient Roman buildings, the most famous of which is its 1st-century amphitheatre, which is among the six largest surviving Roman arenas in the world, and locally known as the Arena. This is one of the best-preserved amphitheatres from antiquity and is still in use today during summer film festivals. During the World War II Italian fascist administration, there were attempts to disassemble the arena and move it to mainland Italy, which were quickly abandoned due to the costs involved.

Croatia's third largest city is a significant port, boasting an array of historic sites, cultural attractions, and great food.

Rijeka is home to several interesting sites. Tvornica "Torpedo" (the Torpedo factory), the first European prototypes of a self-propelled torpedo, created by Giovanni Luppis, a retired naval engineer from Rijeka. The remains of this factory still exist. Svetište Majke Božje Trsatske – the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Trsat. Built 135 m (443 ft) above sea level on the Trsat hill during the late Middle Ages, it represents the Guardian of Travellers, especially seamen, who bring offerings to her so she will guard them or help them in time of trouble. Old gate or Roman arch still stands, as does Rijeka Cathedral, dedicated to St. Vitus.

Rab

Croatia, Primorje-Gorski Kotar region

BeachesSmall townsNatureActive1 night

Located on the Rab Island, this charming town offers its visitors beaches, historic churches, and a great atmosphere.

The island of Rab was first mentioned in a Greek source dating to 360 BC and then by other Greek and Roman geographists by the name Arba. That name belonged to the Liburnians, the oldest known inhabitants of the island. Arba was the name of the Liburnian settlement in the modern city of Rab. It is not certain how old this name is; it may be as old as the settlement, which means from the beginning of the Iron Age, since the Liburnians did not build the city walls on the island. The Illyrian-Liburnian word Arb meant 'dark, obscure, green, forested'. Therefore Arba should be comprehended as meaning "Black island", due to the rich pine forests that once grew on the island.

NatureSmall townsBeachesActiveHistoric2 nights

A beautiful resort, this vibrant city is home to stunning architecture, picturesque beaches, and an array of historic monuments.

Hvar’s location at the center of the Adriatic sailing routes has long made this island an important base for commanding. It has been inhabited since prehistoric times, originally by a Neolithic people whose distinctive pottery gave rise to the term Hvar culture, and later by the Illyrians. The ancient Greeks founded the colony of Pharos in 384 BC on the site of today’s Stari Grad, making it one of the oldest towns in Europe. They were also responsible for setting out the agricultural field divisions of the Stari Grad Plain, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Prosperity brought culture and the arts, with one of the first public theatres in Europe, nobles’ palaces and many fine communal buildings.
