The most beautiful city in the western part of Croatia. Small beautiful streets that made me think of Italy. The airbnb apartment was dope!
Zagreb feels different from the other Croatian cities. The levels of English of the people living here is amazing. Expect everyone to have a min C1 level. The Croatian National Theatre has the biggest parties in Croatia where you can meet dozens of people (mostly teens). There exist different types of looks which are being sported by them (basic, dyed and shaved heads) and each of these represents something about the people. The ones with shaved heads (this goes with orange jackets and black shoes with white shoelaces) are called skinheads or the Nazis, the basic ones are the basic ones and the ones with dyed hair are the alt people. The second day we ran into an ESN group and had a nice city tour :) Love these coincidences.Read more
Although the news channels have exaggerated the damage a bit, nearly 10% of all visible buildings have been destroyed. The 2nd pic illustrated a clear example how the older ones are gone but the modern ones untouched.Read more
Flat cities (Osijek and Vukovar). Better connectivity due to it and trams are available. People are smaller in general and the food is cheaper. The water tank in Vukovar is totally worth visiting for the history of the place. Also the Osijek church is magnificient.Read more
The view from the top is really beautiful, But the day was all about the encounter with the secret police. Apparently it isn't so common for darker people to travel in this part of Croatia and that itself is worth a check. So when we were driving on our way to Rijeka, a red car started waving a STOP sign. With the car looking totally normal, we assumed it to be some people trying to swindle us so we kept going. The car overtook us and stopped in a way that we could not drive, the guys came out of the car and asked us to park us saying they were the police. Since they were ordinarily dressed, we called the real cops before we would give any IDs. When the real cops arrived (in the cop dress and the cop car), everything became ok as we showed our IDs.Read more
