The city of Zagreb is divided into two parts. Located on a hillside in the northern section of the city is the Upper Town, Gornji Grad home to the charming medieval old town, composed of narrow cobblestone streets and Romanesque architecture. In the southern section of the city is the Lower Town, Donji Grad, the modern part of Zagreb with wide avenues, pedestrian shopping streets, neoclassical buildings, and green spaces. Begin your adventure with your Zagreb rental car and visit the Stone Gate Kamenita Vrata, the last of the five original city gates that were built in the 13th century that miraculously survived a large fire in 1731 as did the portrait of the Virgin Mary that was found among the ashes. Today, the Stone Gate is a religious shrine dedicated to the Virgin Mary where you can light a candle and as the locals believe your prayers will be heard and granted. Then head out to Tkalciceva Street where you will find the best cafes and the finest restaurants of Zagreb. Next visit the Zagreb Cathedral, a Roman Catholic place of worship built in 1217, one of the tallest buildings in the area that is also considered to be a landmark of the city.

The most popular include the Ethnographic Museum, the Mimara Museum, the City Museum, and the award-winning Museum of Broken Relationships, an innovative museum that exhibits the remnants of former relationships through descriptions and personal objects collected from around the world.

The most notable pieces include the Vucedol Dove that dates back to 2,500 BC, the Head of Plautilla retrieved from the ancient city of Salona, and the 3rd century BC Zagreb Mummy wrapped in bandages containing the longest Etruscan script in the world.
