Traffic Information

Zagreb is a main hub for five Croatian roadways, and most major routes begin or end in the city. Highways are tolled and can be paid for in Kunas, euros or by credit card. Various HAC Smart Cards can be worth checking out to reduce toll costs. Driving around Zagreb means getting familiar with wide avenues such as Ljubljanska Avenue, Zagrebačka Avenue, Slavonska Avenue and the Vukovarska Avenue. There is also a four-lane highway that circles most of the city but is often congested. Parking can be limited in the city center so it is better to leave your rental vehicle in a parking garage then waste too much time looking for a spot on the street.

Sixt Sightseeing Tips

Zagreb is situated in the interior of Croatia and gives visitors a chance to experience more than just the country's beloved Adriatic Coast. It is the capital and largest city of Croatia and has a rich history that dates back to the Romans. It is split into the Upper Town (Gornji grad) and Lower Town (Donji grad) the former being the cultural center and the latter the commercial center. Besides its medieval heart, the city is known for its mix of Austro-Hungarian architecture and socialist structures. When not strolling the streets or lingering at a cafe, make like a local and head out to the nearby nature. Spring and summer are for swimming and sailing at Jarun Lake while winter time means hitting the slopes of Mt Medvednica.

Business Travel

Most large Croatian companies and many Central European firms have their headquarters in Zagreb, making it an important destination for business travelers. The downtown area has several tall business towers and the south-east part is where the industrial zone begins. Startups are also beginning to take hold in Zagreb and annual events like the ZagrebConnect conference are helping to create a strong network in the region. The Zagreb Fair organizes numerous industry events throughout the year.

What to Do in Zagreb in Winter 2020

When thinking of Croatia many imagine a beach-filled summer vacation. However, Zagreb is a great place to visit during winter months. The temperatures are, on average, in the mid-30s to low 40s between December and April, and there is a lot to keep visitors entertained. A trip to Zagreb can also turn into a mini ski break. Sjleme ski resort at Medvednica mountain is just a 20-minute drive from the city. If you do not enjoy skiing, there are also beautiful hikes and cozy taverns. Or take a day trip to Plitvice Lakes, which are spectacular in winter because of the famous frozen waterfalls. The city itself is a vibrant and exciting place with flea markets and a nightlife. Tkalciceva is a popular thoroughfare for nightlife, and if you want something quirky and indoors there is a Breakup Museum filled with pieces dedicated to the emotions of lost love. For those who simply want relaxation, Zagreb has an incredible outdoor thermal spa, surrounded by stunning mountains. An SUV would be great to explore the lakes and mountains outside the city and you can always opt for a ski rack if you're heading to Sjleme.
