Zagreb boasts a combination of Austro-Hungarian and Socialist architecture, but it is beloved for its outdoor cafe culture.
Spend the 8th (Sat) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Dedicate the 10th (Mon) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Museum of Broken Relationships, appreciate the extensive heritage of Upper Town (Gornji Grad), let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour, and take the plunge with a skydiving experience.
