FoodHistoricCultureNight life2 nights

Visit Croatia's capital city, home to amazing museums, green parks and gardens, renowned restaurants, and vibrant nightlife.

Zagreb is a city with a rich history dating from the Roman times to the present day. The oldest settlement in the urban area of the city is Andautonia, a Roman settlement in the place of today's Ščitarjevo. The name "Zagreb" is mentioned for the first time in 1094 at the founding of the Zagreb diocese of Kaptol, and Zagreb became a free royal town in 1242, whereas the origin of the name still remains a mystery in spite of several theories. In 1851 Zagreb had its first mayor, Janko Kamauf, and in 1945 it was made the capital of Croatia when the demographic boom and the urban sprawl made the city as it is known nowadays.

Located on the Rab Island, this charming town offers its visitors beaches, historic churches, and a great atmosphere.

The island of Rab was first mentioned in a Greek source dating to 360 BC and then by other Greek and Roman geographists by the name Arba. That name belonged to the Liburnians, the oldest known inhabitants of the island. Arba was the name of the Liburnian settlement in the modern city of Rab. It is not certain how old this name is; it may be as old as the settlement, which means from the beginning of the Iron Age, since the Liburnians did not build the city walls on the island. The Illyrian-Liburnian word Arb meant 'dark, obscure, green, forested'. Therefore Arba should be comprehended as meaning "Black island", due to the rich pine forests that once grew on the island.

A beautiful resort, this vibrant city is home to stunning architecture, picturesque beaches, and an array of historic monuments.

Hvar’s location at the center of the Adriatic sailing routes has long made this island an important base for commanding. It has been inhabited since prehistoric times, originally by a Neolithic people whose distinctive pottery gave rise to the term Hvar culture, and later by the Illyrians. The ancient Greeks founded the colony of Pharos in 384 BC on the site of today’s Stari Grad, making it one of the oldest towns in Europe. They were also responsible for setting out the agricultural field divisions of the Stari Grad Plain, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Prosperity brought culture and the arts, with one of the first public theatres in Europe, nobles’ palaces and many fine communal buildings.
