The town of Zagreb has a lot to offer in its different areas. The thousand-year old Gornji grad (Upper town) contains the Presidential Palace, the historic church of St. Mark’s, the Croatian parliament, along with museums and galleries. They are all set in romantic cobbled streets, which are lit by gas lamps in the evening. The other extraordinary district is the 19th century Donji grad (Lower town) with its shops, restaurants, cafés, theatres, parks and spectacular buildings. Zagreb is also a city of green parks and walking paths, with many places to visit in the beautiful surroundings. In spite of the rapid development of the economy and transportation, it has retained its charm, and a relaxed feeling that makes it a genuinely human city.
