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.
Here are some specific highlights of the Zagreb region:
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.
The gorgeous baroque architecture dates from when Varazdin was briefly Croatia's capital and it's reachable by train or bus.
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.
It's one of Croatia's most important pilgrimage sites and on the slopes of glorious Medvednica mountain.
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.
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.
The Zagreb County Tourist Board (tel 1 4873 665, Preradovićeva ulica 42, Zagreb) is the place to go for comprehensive information about sights in Zagreb county.
