Zagreb Cathedral is one of the most famous sites to visit when you have flights to Zagreb. It is also known for being the tallest building in Croatia. Construction on the cathedral began in the late 11th century and was completed in 1217. Over the centuries, Zagreb Cathedral has had to be reconstructed several times: It was first destroyed in 1242 after Mongols invaded the area, and in 1880, it suffered severe damage after an earthquake. Today, visitors with flights to Zagreb can see the reconstructed cathedral that looks as it was originally built. The main features of the Zagreb Cathedral are its tall spires, which can be seen from many points around the city.
Zagreb’s Old Town is divided into two sections: Kaptol and Gradec. For many years, these neighbouring areas had a strained relationship and operated separately. Kaptol was the religious hub of the city. It is where you’ll find Zagreb Cathedral, and it’s where the city’s diocese was founded in 1094. Gradec was once home to Zagreb’s traders and artisans. It has a medieval flair with narrow cobblestone streets and Gothic architecture. Get a full picture of the city’s Old Town by visiting both Kaptol and Gradec when you have return flights to Zagreb.
This popular pedestrian street is located within the heart of the city centre. Tkalciceva Street stretches between Jelacic Square and Kaptol Centre. The road is lined with a variety of restaurants, bars, and cafes to enjoy after arriving on your flights to Zagreb.
