Zagreb

Despite its Yugoslav past, Zagreb is a city that looks north to central Europe rather than south to the Balkans. The city centre’s pastel-coloured houses recall a miniature Vienna, while the cafés clustering around its central Jelacic Square and in the nearby 18th century Gornji Grad area look and feel very much like part of the old Austrian Empire’s coffeehouse culture.

Often overlooked by visitors heading for the coast, the Croatian capital’s manageable scale and jewel box old town nonetheless make it a good choice for a city break. Indeed, sometimes Zagreb feels like a livelier version of a small town. The Gornji Grad’s knot of old lanes is packed with bars and cafes, while the central Dolac market is great for picking up local cheese and honey. Zagreb has good museums too – Zagreb’s Museum of Contemporary Art, opened in 2009, is probably the best of its kind in south-eastern Europe, while the quirky Museum of Broken Relationships showcases objects left over by departed lovers. Still within the city's official borders is wooded Mount Medvenica, whose 1,000 metre high peak is easily reached by cable car.

Croatian cultural festival delights

While there are no big music festivals in Zagreb itself, there are many in Croatia. Dotted all around the country, on beaches or in tiny villages, just hours from the capital. Starting with Croatia Rocks, on the Island of Pag, taking place 19 to 23 July. Following this great start, Soundwave Festival is great for electronic music. Down on the beach at Tisno, between 6 and 10 August, this should be an amazing one for dancing. Or head over to the big hip-hop festival at Outlook in Pula, from 2 to 6 September, where you will find Jurassic 5, Jeru the Damager and Roni Size wowing the crowds.
