Looking for day trips from Zagreb? Zagreb is not only a fascinating place to explore in its own right but it makes a great base for day trips throughout the Croatian interior. You'll need a car to make the most of your day trip though. See about car rentals in Zagreb.

Regions you can easily reach from Zagreb on a day trip include Varazdin county, Krapina-Zagorje county, Zagrebacka county, Karlovac county and Lika-Senj county.

Highlights

Here are some specific highlights of the Zagreb region:

Streams run through SamoborSamobor
It's point & shoot cute and only a 30-minute bus ride from Zagreb. This is where locals go to get away from bustling Zagreb.

 

 

Varazdin Town HallVarazdin
The gorgeous baroque architecture dates from when Varazdin was briefly Croatia's capital and it's reachable by train or bus.

 

Plitvice LakesPlitvice Lakes National Park
The only one of Croatia's national parks, within easy reach of Zagreb, the lakes and waterfalls of Plitvice make a truly wondrous excursion from the capital.

 

KarlovacKarlovac
Whether as a stopover on the way to the coast or as a change of pace from Zagreb, Karlovac makes an interesting destination. Rafters will love its four rivers.

Marija BistricaMarija Bistrica
It's one of Croatia's most important pilgrimage sites and on the slopes of glorious Medvednica mountain.

 

Castles

Yes, Croatia once had nobility who lived like, well, nobility in castles sprinkled throughout Croatia's beautiful Zagorje region which describes the rustic charm and rolling hills of the area north of Zagreb.

Closest to Zagreb is the striking Veliki Tabor castle, 57km from Zagreb on a scenic route. More.

Trakoscan is the most romantic castle and also the one in best condition with a fully furnished interior. More

Other castles worth looking at are Marusevac, a neo-Gothic fairy-tale palace, and Miljana, the former country residence of the Ratkay counts. Neither can be visited.
