In Zagreb, ghosts abound but the city gives a warm welcome.
In addition to being an exceptional storytelling experience, the tour is also an excellent orientation to the city itself. As visitors who were only in town for one night, we really appreciated the opportunity to see important buildings like the Parliament, to climb a few (moderate) hills to get a great view of the city, and to learn some interesting tidbits about Zagreb life. It may sound morbid, but I got a real kick out of being introduced to a part of the city where ghosts are being made on a regular basis - otherwise known as a notorious intersection where, despite legendary dangers, drivers refuse to slow down and seem hell bent on joining the spirit world!
While a part of me wishes I had explored further afield to indulge in traditional Croatian cuisine, our choice was delicious and the perfect prelude to an afternoon nap - eagerly anticipated after our long train ride in from Budapest. When we awoke, creme brule with fresh currants was the perfect pre-tour treat.

- The Esplanade is just one of many great options for accommodations in Zagreb.
