Q. Where can I exchange money?
A. There are little exchange shops all over town, practically on every corner in the center. They are called 'Mjenjacnica' and they all give approx. the same rate. We don't recommend exchanging at the airport, as we find they tend to give slightly different rates (but what's not expensive at the airport, right?).
Q. Where is the best place to grab a drink in town?
A. In the center, there is this little pedestrian-only street called 'Tkalciceva.' It's my personal favorite spot to sit for a drink in town, and there are many many cafes to choose from, each with their own patio to enjoy the afternoon sun (or evening nightlife). For some local beer, head to Mali Medo, a little craft brewery on the same street for some fantastic drafts.
Q. What local restaurant would you recommed for some authentic Croatian cuisine?
A. We recommend 'Didov San' in the upper town (a short walk from the main square). It has all of the local specialties and a great atmosphere to go along with it. Octopus cooked under "peka" with potatoes is a real treat. We suggest reserving your table and octopus before you dine.
Q. How far is Plitvice Lakes National Park from Zagreb?
A. Plitvice Lakes is about 2.5 from Zagreb by car, and it's well worth the visit! Most people visit the lakes as a day trip from Zagreb. We even offer private transfers to and from the lakes on a daily basis, so let us know if you're in need of transportation and we'd be happy to bring you to one of the most magical places in all of Croatia.
Q. Are there any festivals or special events going on in Zagreb at the moment?
A. There are always different happenings going on in the center of Zagreb, and our drivers always have the up-to-date information. Whether it's food, music, dancing, history or anything in between, this city loves to entertain its people with new and exciting events.
Q. How do you say 'Hello!' in Croatian?
A. 'Bok' is the causual way to say hello in Croatian. To make things easy, it's also how you say 'Bye!' Look at that, you've just learned your first Croatian words!
Q. What is the population of Zagreb? And Croatia?
A. As of 2011, Zagreb's population was 790, 017 and the population of Croatia in the same year was 4.29 million. Croatia is a small country, with a big heart.
