Zagreb is a delightful blend of East and West. In medieval times, it consisted of two separate towns, Kaptol, the religious center, and Gradec, the commercial hub. The river Medvescak in-between the two towns was often the site of fierce battles between them. Today, Gradec and Kaptol together form the Upper Town, or Gornji Grad - the historic Old Town of Zagreb. The Lower Town, or Donji Grad, on the plains is more chic and contemporary. Church steeples and chic café stand side by side. In the summer, life spills out onto the streets as cafes dot the sidewalks. Don’t miss the beautiful Opera House, similar in style to the State Opera of Vienna. Zagreb is the epitome of understated luxury - a laid back capital with an easy vibe, friendly people, and extremely enjoyable to tour and explore.
