    Zagreb - Day 2

    August 16 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.
