Travel Zagreb and Varazdin Croatia
Posted on Jun 27, 2013 by
I singled out Mary-Anne as I recall she is a Croatia expert, but will take advice from anyone who is willing to give it!
We will have 2 full days in Zagreb (not counting days of arrival and departure) in mid-August.
To make the most of that time, I would appreciate knowing the most important sites to see and if we should take time away from Zagreb to do a side trip to Varazdin.
Also, are there any local restaurants that you know of in the walking vicinity of the Hotel Astoria. It is affiliated with Best Western. From their website it looks like a pretty nice place to stay... surely hope so!
From visiting other European cities in August, I know that often times the locals take their vacations then and consequently, some restaurants and shops are closed. Is this the case in Zagreb also? It was very true of Paris when we lived there for three years back in the 80`s.
