Zagreb is the capital of Croatia and was a nice place to visit, very clean and with friendly people. The central city is small enough to walk around in and has a tram system that is very efficient. They have a changing of the guard on most Sundays and a free botanical garden. The food was inexpensive compared to most cities in Europe. The main plaza always seems to have something going on.

If you're staying for less than 3 days you will find it very charming, a small version of Vienna - as a lesser node in the old Austro-Hungarian Monarchy Zagreb has all the romantic architectural and cultural markings of a late 19th century boomer. The scene has most to offer if you're into alternative music or if you are looking for a taste of the Balkans and it's modern, turbo-folk culture.

Zagreb has had a long and often turbulent history. Nestled in the no-mans land between more powerful neighbors it has come under sway from a long list of different powers. The city has a very nice old town, with a lot of cool churches, and museums. The old town also has an amazing assortment of statutes, that entices the curious to want to learn more about this city's interesting history

I had no idea what to expect from Zagreb when I first visited, as it doesn't fit neatly into any one category. It doesn't feel exactly Austro-Hungarian or Balkan or even Eastern, Central or Western European. You can feel its historical influences -- Roman, Byzantine, Gothic, Turkish, Soviet, Yugoslav. Perhaps this is why it's such a great city for museums. You can visit a new one every day for two weeks and see a new performance nightly (the Croatian National Theatre is beautiful to tour during the day even without a performance).
Although not as popular a tourist destination as the coastal destinations of Dubrovnik or Split, Zagreb, the political and cultural capital of Croatia, is still worth a visit. Zagreb is a museum aficionados dream; home to more museums per square...read more from source
