    Zagreb - Day 2

    August 16, 2019 in Croatia ⋅ 🌙 17 °C

    We started the day off with a lunch of Struckli. This was a type of ‘lasagne’ that is made by layering a Croatian pasta dough with cottage cheese and other things, depending on your preference and then baking it in the oven. It’s a local dish to Zagreb and was lovely!

    Next we went to the Nikola Tesla Museum where we had a tour of a mine and watched some of Tesla’s experiments in a demonstration.

    Then we went up Zagreb 360 which is an observation platform where you can view the whole city.

    After that we visited an old department store called Nama. The stuff they sold resembled a Chinese shop, but the architecture was art nouveau, so it was worth going inside just for that.

    Finally we took a stroll through the old WW2 bunker tunnels that connect various parts of the city. We followed our noses and found a fantastic restaurant for dinner called Konoba Didov San. We went just at the right time because after we got there, they started turning people away because they were so full. The food was amazing.

    Skipped Ljubljana... straight to Zagreb

    August 15, 2019 in Croatia ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Because of the accident last night our train was delayed by a couple of hours so we decided to get off at Zagreb instead.

    We arrived at 7am at the station, almost missing our stop. As we pulled into the station we frantically grabbed our stuff and jumped off the train in our pyjamas, getting changed on the platform. We got the tram to the hostel and were allowed to check in early, so now we have had a chance to shower, change and have a bit of a rest before we go out exploring later.Read more

    NK Lokomotiva Zagreb - Inter Zaprešić

    March 17, 2018 in Croatia ⋅ 🌧 7 °C

    Bevor es zum ersten Spiel des Tages ging, besorgten wir uns erst einmal Regenschirme (das war heute definitiv das Cleverste was wir machen konnten). Außerdem ging es vorher noch zum Stadion von Dinamo Zagreb, um schon einmal Tickets für das zweite Spiel zu holen.
    Danach fuhren wir dann mit der Straßenbahn zum Stadion von Lokomotiva. Vor Ort angekommen wollten wir noch ein Bierchen trinken gehen und uns einen kleinen Snack gönnen, aber vorher wollte ich uns schon Tickets besorgen, um sicher zu gehen, dass wir überdacht sitzen.
    Denkste! Also überdacht sitzen schon, aber zu meinem Entsetzen gab es keine Tickets...für das Spiel gab's freien Eintritt, na danke!
    Naja, dann ging es halt ohne Tickets in eine Bar direkt gegenüber vom Stadion.
    Kurz vor Anpfiff machten wir uns dann auf den Weg ins Stadion. Selten war ein Länderpunkt so einfach. Das Stadion war ganz nett mit einer großen Tribüne. Auf der Gegenseite gab es zusätzlich noch einige Stehplätze. Der Platz stand teilweise unter Wasser, sodass ein vernünftiger Spielfluss kaum möglich war (in Deutschland hätte man nicht gespielt).
    Die Hausherren kamen in der ersten Halbzeit mit den Bedingungen besser klar und führten zwischenzeitlich mit 2:0. Kurz vor der Pause gab es per Elfmeter jedoch den Anschlusstreffer für die Gäste. In Halbzeit zwei drehten sie sogar noch das Spiel und gewannen mit 3:2!
    Fantechnisch ging dort gar nichts, ich bin aber auch ohne Erwartungen in das Spiel gegangen. Insgesamt waren vielleicht 50 Zuschauer da.
    Anschließend ging es für uns dann fix zum Stadion von Dinamo Zagreb.
