It doesn’t stop there. You could try the Britanski trg antique market, each Sunday morning, and you’ll find it bursting with flair and excitement. Here you will find various decorative things, old books, and collectables of both local and international origin. Located in the very heart of the city, the market is a real cultural treat for all fans of antiquity. Then there’s Hrelić (Jakuševac) flea market which might put Only Fools and Horses (Mućke) to the fore of your thoughts. This is the city’s largest Sunday flea market. Situated on the outskirts of the city, it is jam packed with goodies from cars, motor-cycles, clothes, to thousands of other handy items. Get in early as merchants leave by noon. The quickest way to get to the Fair is to catch the 295 bus Glavni kolodvor (the main train station); this line is available only on Sundays and it leaves the station at 07:20, 08:00, 08:40, 09:20, 10:00, 10:40, 11:20, 12:00, and 12:40. You need to buy your ticket from the driver for this particular bus line.

If you’re looking for a more sedate time, then a trip to Mirogoj, Zagreb’s main cemetery situated on the slopes of Medvednica (Bear Mountain if translated literally), is perfect. It is one of the most beautiful cemeteries in Europe, rivalling even Vienna’s Zentralfriedhof. Lime-green cupolas top the wall that surrounds the memorial park. Mirogoj is not only a burial place but also a beautiful park and open art gallery. Not far from the present mortuary, in the period between 1852 and 1895 there stood the summer house of the Illyrian leader, Ljudevit Gaj. After his death the municipality bought the complete estate and constructed the central Zagreb cemetery upon it. The well-known, and already mentioned, architect Hermann Bollé designed the shape of the cemetery, applying a monumental composition of arcades, pavilions, and domes, intermingled with rich vegetation, and adding a gallery of sculptures by Croatian sculptors. Getting There: The 106 bus from the Cathedral to Mirogoj takes 15min and costs 10kn. You can also take the 14 tram from the main square heading east (to Mihaljevac) and get out at the fourth stop (Gupčeva zvijezda). You’ll see the signs from there.
