Are you traveling to Zagreb by plane? One-way ticket cost from 200 EUR to 270 EUR. The disadvantage of a plane is that the airport is located outside the city so in that case you need some extra transportation to the center. Consequently, the reduced air distance is definitely compensated by the time it takes to check in and arrive at the city as the airport is located outside the same.

Bus stops at the Zagreb - Munich journey
Going to Zagreb there are several options in the dependencies that change the cities and places you are going through the journey. However, the most frequent option of a carrier involves passing in parallel to these places and cities: Salzburg, Klagenfurt, Bled, Ljubljana and Novo Mesto.
Salzburg is a Baroque town that is complemented by the cathedral, the Hohensalzburg fortress and the castles. You can see the fortress mentioned above from almost every corner of the city, and its beauty stands out at night. The specialty of this Austrian town is the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. For many tourists it is undoubtedly one of the favorite destinations.
Klagenfurt is a small town that is usually visited as part of one-day excursions to Minimundus, the city of miniature buildings. Take a look at it: the cathedral of St. Trinity, Alter Platz, St. Egid and Neuer platz with fountain dragon.
Bled is very easy to describe as a paradise for tourists. It is, in fact, a beautiful, beautiful place, whose main attraction is the Bled Lake. Rent a boat and, by driving, absorb the irresistible beauty of the Slovenian Alps.
The Slovene metropolis, Ljubljana, is the largest city in the country. In it, along the main square and numerous bridges, it is worth to visit: Filipov Dvorec, Robb's Fountain and the baroque church of St. Nicholas. Let's emphasize that Ljubljana has its most famous bridge. It's Tromostovje bridge which is located in its center.
Novo Mesto is the center of Dolenjska in Slovenia. It is a kind of industrial center where chemical, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries are developed and dominated.
Munich has 1.3 million inhabitants and carries the nickname "the northernmost Italian city". It is especially known for 'weissbier' beer and Oktoberfest, but it is also possible to add quality, well-organized public transport, cycling trails, low crime rate and high birth rate.
Oktoberfest is the largest fair in the world, which is held every year in this city. The arrival of rivers of tourists is mostly related to this event.
Have you ever wondered why it is called by the month of October when it is mostly held in September? The reason is historical. Namely, the first time the fair held was on October 12, 1810.
The 'Weissbier' beer is not made from wheat, and it is specifically because of the different production process, which does not involve pasteurisation, so it quickly breaks down. This should be the reason for the absence of exports outside Germany, but also in some parts of the country.
Independent of Oktoberfest and beer, Munich (Munchen) abounds with sights worth seeing. The Marienplatz Square, the Glockenspiel Gymnasium and the Justizpalast Justice Palace are an example of this.
Finally, Munich is also perfect for experiencing and being part of merging different cultures. Reason for this are mainly students who come to Munich from different parts of the world.
Zagreb is the Croatian metropolis and its largest city. On one side it is located on the slopes of Medvednica, and on the other side of the Sava coast. It is particularly interesting in many neighborhoods that, especially in recent years, are striving to provide their residents with everything they need in a narrow neighborhood area, so they almost don't have to go outside, except for school/work and night out.
Namely, the quarters are well equipped with primary schools, kindergartens, children's parks, dog parks, shops (either smaller neighborhoods, or large commercial chains), cafes, banks, ATMs and post offices.
However, the center of Zagreb is divided into two: Upper and Lower Town. The Upper Town is dominated by Mark's square and St. Mark's Church, while the Lower Town is dominated by Josip Jelacic Square and the Zagreb Cathedral.
On the other hand, those who prefer nature suggest a visit to one of these two lakes: Jarun or Bundek. You can use public transport, bus or tram, to get from one place to another. The lovers of culture and art are welcomed in one of the theaters, art galleries or museums.
If you are interested in further exploring in Croatia, we suggest these destinations: Rijeka (famous port), Pula, NP Plitvice lakes, Split, Zadar, Sibenik, Makarska, Dubrovnik, Varazdin, Osijek and Pozega.
