Zagreb Guide

Guide

The capital of Croatia, and the former cultural capital of Yugoslavia is a cosmopolitan metropolis that embodies history, art and modern culture. The city is perpetually alive with busy cafes, raucous clubs and its many festivals. The most convenient way of getting around Zagreb and its countryside is by opting for a rental car. If this takes your fancy then please prebook car hire in Zagreb in advance of travel.

Explore Zagreb

In the heart of the city lies Jalacic Square, which is always hectic and bustling with crowds. From here you can stroll across to the cathedral and take a look at the central market. In the northern part of the city is the Stone Gate, where you will come across a shrine to the Virgin Mary.

Just around the corner from the cathedral is St Mark’s Church, which has a charismatic interior designed by Croatia's most prominent sculptor, Ivan Mestrovic. The church is also the home of many other works of the beloved artist. If you don't feel like sightseeing, the upper town has some quiet, leafy parks to stroll around with the occasional soothing view.

The charm of the city is its cosiness, and a walking tour is the best way to discover the legacy of the town’s heydey under Habsburg rule. Many of the streets favour pedestrians, but watch out for trams. Although the city doesn’t boast too many grand sites, it has an interesting Balkan character with a few large open parade grounds, such as the one near the station, befitting its communist legacy.

There are also a few sobering reminders of the early nineties civil war of succession, such as the footwall built around the American barracks, with each brick commemorating a dead citizen.

Zagreb has a plethora of cafes and bars in the pedestrian area around Gajeva and Bogoviceva &endash; particularly along Tkalciceva, just north of Trg bana Jelacica. The National Theatre, Trg marsala Tita 15, offers drama, ballet, opera and orchestral music. For the partygoers, there is an abundance of noisy dance clubs scattered around Zagreb.

Take a day trip out of town and enjoy the picturesque countryside at Hrvatsko Zagorje, which lies at the north end of Zagreb. This hilly area is a haven of historic villages, farms, vineyards and pleasant spas. The castles of Veliki, Trakoscan and Beranac are a must see and afford fantastic views.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours). Which car rental companies are compared by Carrentals.co.uk? at this location
