If you’re visiting Croatia any time soon and you would like some help getting around the capital city of Zagreb, here’s my guide about best places in Zagreb to see art.

Zagreb is a charming and fun city with a lot of culture to see, and it’s very conveniently designed around a horseshoe-pattern of  lovely parks.  Compared to Western Europe, it’s cheap – the Croatian kuna is at an all-time low against the dollar – and it’s very safe.

But Zagreb can be intimidating socially. Most people outside of expensive touristy hotels/restaurants won’t speak English, and the Croatian language is impossible.  (I can say that.  I’m part Croatian myself.)

My guide features some magic words in Croatian that will get you through almost any situation.  These are easy to learn, even if you’re hopeless with languages.

Unanchor guides are meant to be more intensive than a normal guidebook.  They don’t just list places to go, they take you by the hand and lead you there.  I like this approach, because I have often been lost or confused by incomplete directions in guidebooks.

My guide has images of Croatian art from the ancient to the modern, and describes the best places in Zagreb where art can be found.

You also get a guide to the best places to eat for any budget, and tourist traps to stay away from.   Also, a guide to navigating the sometimes confusing process of buying train tickets at the main railway station, with advice for getting the best deal on your tickets.

It’s the first travel guide I’ve ever written, and I feel pretty good about it!

If you’re visiting Zagreb any time soonm why not give my guide a try?  Drop me a line and tell me what you think of it.
