Croatia – the place that undoubtedly received the most amount of envious ‘Ooh’s’ when we described where our trip would take us, and it didn’t disappoint.

Zagreb, the cities Capital, home to the wonderful Gothic Cathedral and much more spectacular sights.

Many people told us we were wasting our time in Zagreb, and despite it being a long way from the beautiful blue oceans that line the country, the city had a buzz about it proved the doubters wrong. Added to that, the weather meant any water activities would have been out the window anyway.

Chillout Hostel was home for our time in the city, and what a home. Hands down the best location of any hostel we’ve stayed at during our trip. A stones throw away from the main square, Chillout is definitely the place to stay if you want to get amongst it.

The choice of many businessmen as well as travellers, there is a real diverse feeling to the hostel. The ‘Hangout’ bar is often filled different groups, and the ever-changing design makes for a nice surprise every time you enter.

Reception is open 24 hours a day and they are more than happy on what to advise you do to during your stay.

Rooms in the hostel are very well kept, and the beds are extremely comfortable. Lockers are provided in each room, along with plugs by most of the beds. Some rooms are en suite, and there are plenty of showers and toilets provided on each floor for the ones that aren’t.

Quick Tip: Be sure to try the restaurant linked to the hostel, Njummy. The food is delicious and the prices very reasonable!

Whilst in Zagreb, there’s lots to do. If you’re looking to experience the night life, Chillout Hostel has links to a pub crawl that allows you to do just that. But if you’re happy to go it alone. Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays are the best nights to do it.

Tkalciceva is the place to go. Two minutes from the hostel, the road is lined with pubs, bars and clubs & is busy throughout the day.

Zagreb itself is home to some beautiful buildings and landscapes. St Marks Church, Mirogoj Cemetry and the Old Upper Town are must sees and all easy to access. The Zagreb Eye gives you a view of the whole city and the cathedral is stunning.

Another must do while in Zagreb, is the Plitvice Lakes National Park. Although not in Zagreb itself, there are day trips all available all over the city, as well from Chillout. Clear waters, amazing waterfalls and a full day of fun exploring. The park is simply breathtaking.

Zagreb uses its own currency, meaning things like food and beer are very cheap. Visiting local establishments will save you money, and you can pretty much eat out every day – even on a budget.

Quick Tip: There are corn on the cob stands on nearly every street corner. A cheap healthy snack to fuel you through the day. 

The start of Croatia was even better than expected, looking forward to the next adventure in Split…
