One day in Zagreb

Hello, we will be arriving in Zagreb on a Sunday about 6.30am (I think) on the overnight train from Sarajevo. We will fy home to the UK the following day at about midday. What do you suggest we see and do in Zagreb? Are there baggage lockers at the train station?

Thank you.

Once at the railway station in Zagreb leave your luggage at the wardrobe and take the morning train to Krapina. Visit the neanderthal men museum there, treat yourself with a good lunch with local dishes like "strukli " cheese cake. Evening stroll through Zagreb will be enough.

Simply go to the main square (Trg bana Jelacica) to the Tourist Info Center and take a free walking map. Follow the map and you can see Lower Town and Upper Town tourist sites all by easy walking, with breaks for drink or food in between.

The Neanderthal museum in Krapina was interesting, but I would rather spend my time wandering around Zagreb and zagrebresident has given you good advice.

What I would do? I would walk from the Train station along great parks to Cvjetni Trg (Flowery Square) and get me some real espresso. Than, I would go to Dolac (Farmer's market). For breakfast, I would grab cevapi at Rubelj's grill (at the market) and go down to Hotel Dubrovnik for another round of espresso.... After that I would check the stores along Ilica street and on return go to Vincek pastry shop for some GREAT sweets.

With full belly, I would head to Gornji grad (Upper city) check some galleries and a few churches, than through the gates of prayers, I would check Cathedral.

I would probably go to Archeology Museum and spend some time there... Ouch! It's almost past for a great lunch! Maybe some przene girice (fried anchovies) in Korcula and probably glass of wine there (Teran and Kastelet brand come to mind) and pay visit to Hard rock cafe. If it's not really great there, going on Tesla street, I would walk to the National Theater and look around great architecture. If I have time, Mimara museum is near by. I would probably like to see some Rembrandt paintings, and prepare myself for a dinner... Now, what to eat for a dinner is real question. But, after dinner, I would probably finish day at few music halls, bars with live music or just walk around, get some roasted chestnuts and observe city life and lights....

Now, let's consider something for a dinner....... Any ideas?
