Croatia's capital, city of Zagreb

Cathedral of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

This Cathedral, which can be seen from just about any point in the city, is a beautiful structure. The original building was constructed in 1242, and has survived fires and earthquakes – with the help of some reconstruction, of course. This is one of the most popular sights in Zagreb and is something that every visitor should see up close.

Mirogoj Cemetery

While many people wouldn’t think that a cemetery would make for an interesting vacation hotspot, the ivy covered graves and monuments here are always a big tourist draw. All of the famous people who have lived in Zagreb are buried in this cemetery.

Cycling in Croatia
