I arrived in Zagreb via Budapest mid day with a large appetite, a need for some caffeine, and absolutely no idea what my plan was for Croatia. What you see above, along with the beer — why not? — was the perfect way to solve all those crises. I put the following must-dos on my list: Plitvice Lakes National Park, Dubrovnik, Split, and Hvar, with a few other things that I categorized in the ‘if I find the time’ category. With my trip reasonably planned out, and on a full belly, I did the walking tour that the tour book outlined. The first stop was their outdoor market:
The walking tour continued to the ‘Museum of Broken Relationships’, an obscure museum full of artifacts and stories from strangers’ previous relationships, and eventually this neo-gothic cathedral at one of their main squares.
After touring the city, and a daytrip to Plitvice, it was time for a night of partying. The hostel I stayed at produced their own Rakia…which is a Croatian alcohol that I would say is somewhere between rum and vodka. I was asked by someone staying there to tell them which flavor was the best. As I hadn’t yet tried them, I decided to take down all seven at once. Gaucho Pride!
After that, the pub crawl commenced and we eventually made out way to their chief nightclub: History. Which is a great way to describe that night.
