ZAGREB TRAVEL GUIDE
WHAT TO EATZagrebački odrezak (breaded and fried veal stuffed with ham and cheese), roast turkey with mlinci (flatbread), štrukli (pastries filled with cottage cheese) and knedli (sweetened, fruit-stuffed potato dumplings).
WHAT TO BRING BACKRakija of your choice (a variety of fruit or herb brandies), traditional Croatian neckties, handmade crystal glassware from nearby Samobor and Croatian Bajadera chocolates.
Fun FactDuring the changing of the guard ceremony in St. Mark’s Square (every Saturday and Sunday at noon!), you might notice the guards’ bright-red neckties. In fact, Croatia is the birthplace of the necktie—or cravat. They were worn by Croat mercenaries in the 17th century and the word “cravat” stems from “Croat.” Think about that when you’re getting dressed for work.
