Zagreb Christmas Market and Hotel Review

Season’s Greetings from Zagreb,

and its amazing Christmas Markets,

Voted Europe’s Best in both 2015 & 2016

We went earlier this month for a day trip,

and had a city tour, where we saw

Cathedral of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

We enjoyed it so much that we decided to go back,

for Christmas eve-eve and eve 😉

It’s a beautifully decorated city,

and in just about every corner there’s a market.

It’s full of music, food, gifts and drinks

 The 5 star hotel, Esplanade, wasn’t too shabby to spend the holiday either.

or taking a recoup from the winter chills in their sauna.

But I did relax on one of their cute chairs.. ha ha

Esplanade is in the heart of the city, walking distance from all the main attractions.

It’s pretty cheap too, for a 5 star hotel. Thanks to the Kuna (Croatian Currency).

The hotel’s pictures match those on booking.com.

And the only disappointing factor about Esplanade, in my opinion, was being denied to eat:

they didn’t have enough space for their guests for lunch/dinner at their restaurant.

This left us hungry and looking for food elsewhere.

At least, for next time, we’ll know to make reservations 😉

Hope you had a fabulous holiday!

And this is a short post because I’m off to China, tomorrow 🙂
