Huge farmer's and trader's market. Mostly fresh produce, with a corner for crafts. Street level is fruits and vegetables. Side building is for seafood, and a couple of floors below-ground house fresh and deli meats, and cheese.
Fantastic for assembling a cheap and delicious picnic, even better if you're buying food to cook in your self cate apartment. If you're not the DIY type, choose one of the many wine and local "tapas" bars on the perimeter to people-watch.
Open from 6am - 2pm each day, and until 3pm on Saturdays.
A beautiful and recently refurbished five star hotel, with the best location in the city. It was built to serve the Orient Express customers and the decor and ambience reflect this.
It was one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in, oozed luxury and relaxation, beutiful rooms with L'Occitane toiletries, lovely massage in the spa downstairs, gorgeous terrace bar and great service. Zagreb is a gem of a city and felt friendly from the moment we arrived. This hotel made it the highlight of my holiday. I loved it.
Two minute walk from the station
Fran's is a great little lobster and tapas bar situated in the old part of town (Vranicanijeva 6). It has the best summer terrace in town. Gornji grad (the upper town) offers superb views overlooking Zagreb.

Surprisingly, one of Zagreb's nicest walks is around it's beautiful cemetery. Not as macabre as it sounds. It's easy to get there by bus, but is also a very do-able walk from the town centre. Gorgeous in autumn - buy roasted chestnuts and enjoy the views. Particularly lovely on All Hallow's Eve - October 31 - when people flock there to lay out thousands of candles on family graves.
Bus No 106 from the cathedral (takes 15 minutes) or tram No 14 from Bana Jelacica square
