    Very pretty the higher part of Zagreb offers a number of interesting shops though for most, very attractive Cathedral and the typical vegetable market, very varied and interesting prices. At the marketplace you can do business with lace and handmade doilies, tablecloths, scarves etc-

Where to stay in Zagreb

Lodging in Croatia's capital Zagreb maintains a high standard, with many centrally located hotels offering significant weekend discounts on their finest rooms. Hostels remain the most affordable option for budget-minded travelers visiting for a day or two, providing small but neat rooms only steps away from the city's most popular bars, clubs, and restaurants. For something a bit quieter, look for self-catering apartments and guesthouses in the city's residential neighborhoods, where you can park for free and get a good night's sleep.
