Zagreb Cathedral & Old Town
If you find yourself in Zagreb for the day, then you need to wander around the Old Town and soak up its history. It also won’t cost you a penny!

All of the exhibits have been kindly donated from all across the world and include such treasures as love letters and wedding dresses. If you want to spend a few hours doing something totally unique and which is incredibly cheap, then this museum is well worth a visit.
The Mirogoj Cemetery

The Zadar Symphony of The Sea Organ
Zadar is home to the iconic symphony of the sea organ, where you can quite literally hear the sea. This dates back to 2005 and was designed by local architect, Nikola Bašić. Beautiful to observe and really has to be heard on any visit to Zadar.
The Beaches of Zadar
There really are many beautiful pebbles beaches for you to enjoy along the Zadar coastline. Just remember to pack your swimming costume and sun cream.
The Picturesque Island of Hvar
