Whether you are looking for a pin, a tractor or that gadget you are sure you can't live without then Hrelic is the place. It all started as a place to buy a used car and buyers are there by 6am to get the real deal. We guarantee you will come away with something useless but the photos you take will be priceless.

Zagreb Holidays

Zagreb is a fun cosmopolitan capital city, but start in the thousand-year-old upper town, Gornji Grad, for all the highlights. Note the Presidential Palace, defended by colourful guards, and St Mark's Church with its exquisitely tiled roof. Descend in the funicular to the lower town and Ban Josip Jelacic Square, a masterpiece of Austro-Hungarian style.

Snack at one of the kiosks in Dolac market before heading to Mirogoj Cemetery. Death is a serious business and you will be impressed by the ornate tombs and the beautiful surrounding park. Choose from a bewildering selection of cuisine before joining the party in the bars and clubs.

About Zagreb

Since the independence of Croatia in 1991, Zagreb has become a bustling cosmopolitan capital city boasting a rich historical and cultural heritage. The highlights lie within the thousand year old upper town of Gornji Grad. Here, one can find the Presidential Palace, the historic Church of St. Mark's displaying the Croatian, Dalmatian and Slovenian coats of arms, now an impressive emblem of the city.

Linking the upper town with the lower, is a charming funicular, said to be the shortest in Europe but well worth the 30 pence fare. The lower town of Donji Grad is the main commercial district with a variety of bars, restaurants and shops. Zagreb is not a city that will dazzle you at first sight but is certainly one you will come to appreciate.
