Zagreb Weather: Enjoy Spring in Zagreb

0 komentara

Mild weather and warm temperatures make spring the best time of year to visit Zagreb, especially for those looking to explore the city’s parks, gardens, historical buildings and cityscapes. Zagreb has an oceanic climate, near the boundary of the humid continental climate, with warm summers, cold winters, and average spring temperatures varying from 6.2° C in March to 19.1° C in June. Easter and spring break, which mark the opening of the spring season in Croatia, lure visitors to the city, but many of the residents also opt for a weekend break on the coast for an early taste of the sea air before tourists start swarming the coast in the summer.

The Lisinski Concert Hall represents the musical heart of the city

0 komentara

The cult location of the musical life of Zagreb is situated in the Trnje quarter. It is often called the vocal cords of Croatia and the world, putting Zagreb on the map of European and global musical metropolises. It is not merely a temple of music and a symbol of Zagreb, but also a witness of the national cultural and social life, and quite an unusual concert hall.

It has seen innumerable concerts, performances and plays. A special one takes us several years back, to the year of 1990, when the Lisinski Concert Hall hosted the greatest European musical competition – Eurosong, making its venue the centre of the best musical notes on the continent.

Antiques fair on British Square – lots of fun and delightful scents of the past

0 komentara

Known as the most Zagreb of all squares, it was built on the meadows between the Sava and Medvednica, with the Kraljevac stream once cheerfully flowing across the centre. Between two wars it had a Catholic, Jewish and Orthodox cemetery, a chapel, a pharmacy, factories, not to mention a cinema, butcher shops, workshops and shops, tailor and shoe repair shop, a doctor’s office and a post office.

The square became the home of the first public toilet built in 1908, and was once the location of a market where women from villages and the Zagreb surroundings would supply the Zagreb citizens with homemade cheese, sour cream, vegetables, mushrooms, fruit and other household produce. Still today they can be found here, and you can also meet pensioners, who passionately comment on current events, play cards, chess and board games, whilst children and grandchildren merrily run around them. People sip coffee on the easy-going café terraces, listening to violin-playing musicians, impatiently waiting for the afternoon sun that shines towards the west side of the square, with Sundays becoming particularly lively and delightful.

A unique museum in Zagreb – the Automobile Museum

0 komentara

The T Model Ford  from 1922, the Nash Standard Six from 1928, the Mercedes-Benz 1705 Cabriolet from 1949, the Volkswagen 1200 from 1955, the Porsche 911, Morris Minis, Mustangs, Beetles, Zastava 750s, old Vespas, Yamahas, Tomos, BMWs… No, we’re not talking about the popular cartoon called ‘Brum’, but if you want to return to those days and recall what cars used to look like, how fast they were and how much power they had, what their technical characteristics and equipment were and why are they still so special, visit the Automobile Museum Ferdinand Budicki in Zagreb!

A beautiful, big and fast E-type Jaguar right at the entrance of the former Pluto cork factory in Ljudevit Posavski Street will arouse your curiosity and you will not be able to resist taking a peek inside and checking out what other old-timers, old cars and motorcycles, some from the beginning of the last century, are there. It will feel as if time has stopped, and these ‘tin pets’ will get under your skin even more.

Stroll through the history of charming Zagreb and learn what it was like in the past

Have you heard stories about knights? Those strong warriors of the Middle Ages who were regarded as the equivalents of modern tanks? They were professional mounted warriors; they wore expensive layers of iron armour, carried shields, swords and other weapons and were symbols of valour, honour, esteem and high moral character. They were an inspiration and a role model to many.

You will have heard the Legend of King Arthur, the famous British knight from the sixth century AD, who gathered his knights together at the Round Table in Camelot and led them in their unsuccessful quest for the Holy Grail, of Tristan the knight and his tragic love for Isolde, of the English warrior-king Richard the Lionheart, whose name is tied to many adventures, and of the equally brave Robin Hood. They all have one thing in common – the ideals of heroism, valour, discipline and basic human virtue. Did you know you can meet such knights in Zagreb as well?

Plants like fruit, they can be fed with apples, banana peels, even beer, and they reduce fatigue, stress, tension, and headache. They also have medicinal properties, and are able to communicate with each other through chemical messages and send signals to other organisms. Does that seem incredible? Do you know when the first plant species developed on Earth? Where exactly and what did they look like? How did they change the climate conditions on Earth and stimulate the emergence of new life forms? Why is their finding considered one of the most important phenomenons in human history? Some of these answers and much more that you did not know about plants, their species and the interesting plant world, you can find in a very special place in Zagreb.
