After spending 6 weeks in Zagreb, it’s a place I will always love, remember and want to return too. I think it’s a place that can both be seen in a few days, but the longer you stay, the more you love. The food is one thing we always want to discover, and Zagreb had plenty to offer. After hearing some mixed reviews on food in Zagreb, we definitely found some places we loved. So where to eat in Zagreb? Here are our favourites…

One thing I absolutely loved about Zagreb is that almost every neighbourhood has it’s own farmers market.

One of our favourites is Tržnica Kvatrić which you can find on the corner of Marticeva Ul. and Subiceva Ul.
