Good evening everyone,
I had such an amazing day and even though it’s Sunday evening, I still have enough force to finally write an article about my 4 day experience in Croatia this December.
Now this is not the first time I’m visiting this magnificent country, but it is the first time that I’m visiting Zagreb, Croatia’s northwestern capital and one of the most beautiful places to spend your Christmas in.
Being the largest city in Croatia, Zagreb distinguishes itself with beautiful Austro-Hungarian architecture, great food and welcoming people.
On this occasion, we have visited the Christmas markets in Zagreb that now make the city a must-visit during holiday season.
The city is so beautiful and as a tourist you have a lot to see mainly in walking distance or by taking public transports, everything being quite accessible.
Besides Zagreb, we also visited Plitvice Lakes National Park that I have already seen in 2013 and that remains as beautiful as the first time that I have visited it. You can see more pics in my article here.
There are a lot of Instagrammable places all around Zagreb, but one place I liked very much interior design wise was Caffe Bar Finijak ! If you’re in the neighborhood, I definitely advise you to visit it 🙂 .
To really dive in the Christmas spirit, the Croatians have come up with their version of Disneyland as well as they could, but just for the holidays – Salajland is not very far away from Zagreb and it’s definitely a must-see even more if you’re traveling with kids. They have their very own Santa and a firework show in the evening. A beautiful bright place I might add ! 🙂
That very day ( well, evening to be more precise) ended with a amazing feast at a nearby village. Seoski Turizam has welcomed us in a lovely old vila dating from the 1900s and we had a homemade dinner, a wine tasting and many more wonderful surprises like local musicians playing and I cannot describe how at home I felt and how it reminded me of my grandparents’ village in Romania. A beautiful experience that I will surely treasure !
And to remain my in my fashion niche, know that we have visited ELFS shop, a brand established by two fashion faculty graduates in Zagreb. Their story is quite impressive and you can read more about it here .
Style wise, I find a lot of iconic influences and some pretty amazing pieces like frilled dresses and well thought patterned skirts. Apart from that, they also have integrated decoration and even lifestyle pieces that are quite beautiful, modern and fairly accessible.
All in all, my adventure in Croatia was super !
If you have any questions about whatever, you can definitely shoot me an email or leave your comment below 🙂
Thank you for passing by on the blog again and hope to be back soon with more awesome travel posts as I have been playing hooky lately 😀 .
Have a beautiful evening !
