If there’s one thing every European city is known for is its architectural marvels that have stood the test of time throughout history. Zagreb’s history has seeped into the local attractions, giving you the perfect opportunity to document your travels through the Gram! Here are some picturesque Instagram-worthy hotspots you cannot miss - especially if you are a social media enthusiast!
Arguably one of the most famous landmarks in Zagreb is the beautiful Zagreb Cathedral which shows the exquisite craftsmanship of the locals during that time. This building is the second tallest building in Zagreb and was designed in the Gothic style of architecture, giving it the dominant feeling that you see on Instagram.
The entire city gives off an old-world feeling, but there is no more so than the Hotel Esplanade. A night or the weekend here will perfectly sum up your ‘Orient Express’ feeling. It may be a little heavy on the wallet, but the location, the ambience and the service you will receive is something to not miss out on, even if it is just for the night!
Thinking about how a cemetery and be a fantastic spot for a photoshoot? We would argue that Mirogoj Cemetary is the only place that makes visiting a cemetery exciting and fun! Built in the 19th century, this place holds war memorials, including famous Croatian natives. With landscaping, arcades and cupolas, you will find shot after shot of picturesque beauty in the best possible light!
St. Mark’s Square
St. Mark’s Square is a well-known tourist & local hotspot for everyone visiting the Upper Town of Zagreb. This iconic square is best known for the sightseeing landmarks it houses - including the Parliament of Croatia, the Government Palace and the iconic St. Mark’s Church, which is popular among the crowd for weddings. Day or night, this place is crowded, so prepare to wait a while for a solo photoshoot!

If you need a splash of colour and not the majestic beauty of old-world architecture, head to the Dolac Market in Zagreb.

Don’t forget to capture the stunning shots of the fresh local produce, especially if you are a foodie!
The Zagreb Eye is an Observation Deck offering 360-degree views of the entire city. This spot is a must-visit, especially if you love photography. Pay attention to the time of the day you visit and the light that falls on the towering structures to capture only the best. You’ll go viral for sure!
Parks and gardens in Zagreb are carefully manicured and offer only the best natural flora in all of Croatia. The Zrinjevac Park is just as picturesque as the other gardens, but what makes this place unique are the pop-up stalls and live music shows happening during the summers for a fun & festive vibe. Don’t miss enjoying the occasion!
