A shopping trip to Dolac market
Visiting a market is a good way to get a feel for the pulse of a city. Zagreb's beloved Dolac market is just a few steps from Ban Jelačić Square, sandwiched in-between the upper and lower towns. You'll spot the flower sellers first, and once up a few steps, the sprawling fruit and vegetable market made up of neat rows of stalls sheltered by bright red parasols. Open every day, Dolac is always busy and bustling but things start to wind down by 1pm when vendors start to pack up so make sure you visit in the morning. On the edge of the market are a few stalls selling handicrafts like lace, wooden objects like spoons, kitchen tools and toys, and wicker baskets.
