MAKSIMIRI am used to renting flats wherever I go in Europe for my work, and it happens a dozen times a year, so that I know what to expect and sometimes to fear. But, honestly, Maksimir is top of my list: located close to where I had to work (Faculty of Economics), in a quiet, residential district, and if the whole building looks quite unappealing, everything changes when you enter : a clean staircase with plants (you see it is lived in and well-kept by the other residents), and when you get into the apartment, you immediately know that you won't regret it: it is very tastefully, but soberly decorated ; Goran and Carmen briefly tell you where everything is and are ready to give you information about the city ; at night, not a noise (very quiet, residential district) ; the tram lines are just a five-minute walk from the flat, and you get into the very city centre in no time ; two supermarkets lie about 300 meters from the flat ; very good heating and immaculate bathroom. Well, I am enthusiastic! And last but not least, I was offered to be picked up (and driven back to) the airport at a very low rate. As you enter the flat, you can't help noticing the numerous post-its where former guests have shown how happy they were to stay there. I just added mine before leaving.
DASVET K ZAGREBVery nice and spacious apartment, good location, spacious, the owner was very friendly and helpful
Apartment LYDIAI stayed in this apartment for 5 days with my friend. The location is perfect, about 5min ride with the tram to the center, there's a beautiful park nearby. The apartment itself is really amazing, cozy, it has everything you need. What I really loved about the whole trip were the hosts Srdjan and Lydia were so helpful and nice. We will be definitely coming back.

APARTMAN ANIUn appartement de très grande qualité, très bien tenu et très bien agencé. Des propriétaires non envahissant et pourtant toujours présents et à l'écoute, ils s'assurent régulièrement de votre bien être. Sans être des experts en anglais, nous n'avons pas eu de problème à nous comprendre. Mon jugement est, je pense, objectif, vu que j'ai passé 50 nuits d'affiler chez eux, j'y ai trouvé une seconde famille, si je devais retourner travailler à Zagreb, je n'hésiterai pas une seconde à louer chez eux. An apartment of very high quality, very neat and well arranged. Non-invasive and yet still present owners and attentive, they will regularly review your well being. No expert in English, we did not have a problem understanding us. My judgment is, I think, objective, because I spent 50 nights in a row at home, I found a second family there, if I go back to work in Zagreb, I will not hesitate one second to return in their home.
Inner City ZagrebEl apartamento está situado en el centro mismo de Zagreb. Es perfecto para ir a pasar unos cuantos días. Las habitaciones son muy amplias y la cocina y el baño son nuevos. Tiene una situación inmejorable, y tiene todas las comodidades necesarias para pasar una buenas vacaciones. El dueño me facilitó mucho las cosas con el idioma y todo fue perfecto. Muy recomendable si vas a pasar unos cuantos días o semanas a Zagreb.

What not to miss Zagreb
In the old town of Zagreb is where most of the points of interest, bars and restaurants are. In the upper part you can find monuments such as the Stone Gate, the old gate from where you could access the city that now has become a shrine of the Virgin Mary, or the sculpture of St George (Sveti Juraj in Croatian) slaying the dragon. Also don’t miss out on the Mirogoj cemetery north of the city, a complex of great architectonic and natural beauty that’s perfect for a nice afternoon stroll (in no way morbid) and see the beautiful gravestones of some of the most prominent figures in Croatian history. The views of the city from Strossmayerovo šetalište are also something not to be missed, as isn’t the Mimara Museum, which contains thousands of works by some of the most important artists in history such as Rembrandt, Caravaggio or Velázquez.
The districts of Zagreb
The old town is divided in two parts: the upper part,Gornji Grad and the lower one, Donji Grad. All tourist interest in the city gathers in these two districts although the area that goes from there to the river Sava is where the city expanded in the 18th century, what today is known as Novi Zagreb, while west of there is Trešnjevka, a residential area. However, it’s the odl town where it’s best to rent cheap apartments in Zagreb because this is where most of the city’s beauty lies
When to visit Zagreb
Not being by the coast, Zagreb doesn’t have the same climate as Split or Dubrovnik. In general, temperatures are lower and are at about 70ºF in summer and close to 35ºF in winter. That’s why visiting the city between May and September is the best plan, as rain is not as commonplace and the sun brings a beautiful shine to the city.

Make sure you buy a Zagreb Card during your holidays in Zagreb that will give you unlimited transport in the city for just 90 kunas (12€-$16) during 72 hours. It’s also advisable to see the city by renting a bicycle
