Zagreb is the capital and the largest city of Croatia. This city has a rich history and many sights to see. Nature lovers should visit Nature Park Medvednica which was founded in 1981. It is placed on the slopes of the beautiful Mount Medvednica and its highest peak is Sljeme. Sights in Zagreb that are a must include: Croatian Museum of Naive art, The Mimara Museum, Archaeological Museum, Park Maksimir, Jarun Lake, Mirogoj Cemetery, The Tower of Lotrscak, Andautonia Archaeological Park, Ban Jelacic Square and the Cathedral of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
The cuisine of Zagreb is based on hearty meat dishes, with sides of beans, hearty soups and cabbage-based salads. Bread is often maize or barley or both. Filling and tasty, the cuisine from this part of the world is more like peasant fare than anything else. Homemade cheese, polenta, game and local fresh-water fish are staples in Zagorje.
Sights, culture, science and art
- The Ban Josip Jelačić square – the main square
- The Upper Town (Gradec) is a medieval part of town which is also the most attractive part to the visitors since it contains many historical sights. One can enter the Upper Town passing through the medieval Stone gate –the only preserved gate to the city of Zagreb. In the passage of the Stone gate there is a beautiful little baroque chapel of the Holy Mother.
- St. Mark’s Square is the central part of the Upper Town dominated by St. Mark’s Church built in the middle of the 13th century. Although the interior of the church is richly decorated and it contains many valuables, the most interesting detail is the picturesque roof displaying the coat of arms of the Kingdom of Croatia, Dalmatia and Slavonia and the City of Zagreb. It was designed by a famous architect, Herman Bollé and it was built in 1882.
- The tower of Lotršćak was built in the 13th century. The cannon is fired every day at noon from the top of the Lotršćak tower.
- The Zagreb cathedral - The building of this magnificent cathedral started in 1094 godine in the romanic-gothic style and it ended in 1217, and it was destroyed by the Tatars in 1242. In 1263 it got renewed by the bishop Timotej in the gothic style and it was fortified in the 16th century. In the 17th century, a fortified renaissance watchtower was erected on the south side, and was used as a military observation point, because of the Ottoman threat.In 1880, the cathedral was severely damaged in an earthquake. The main nave collapsed and the tower was damaged beyond repair. The restoration of the cathedral in the neogothic style was made by Hermann Bollé, bringing the cathedral to its present form. As part of that restoration, two spires of 108 m (354 ft) height were raised on the western side, both of which are in the process of being restored during a massive general restoration of the cathedral.
- Medvedgrad – a fortress situated on the slopes of the Medvednica mountain above the city of Zagreb. It was constructed in 13th century to defend the city from the Tatar raids. Medvedgrad had great historic significance and is the center stage of many legends and stories that are still being told.
