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.
