Zagreb offers many accommodation options

with plenty of hotels apartments Airbnb

and budget-friendly hostels there should

be no problem finding the right housing

for you but there are two peaks when the

accommodation offer could be limited and

hub of the country some of them also

a bit higher public transport is split

open-air lounges a cup of coffee usually

served with a glass of tap water in a

popular place will cost you between 12

to 16 Cunha's


on the worldwide cost-of-living chart

Zagreb is ranked 230 v on my how

expensive displaces scale from 1 to 10

where 1 means crazy cheap and 10 means

crazy is expensive I would give Zagreb a

5 indicating that Croatian capital is

not expensive for visitors one of the

reasons or Zagreb to be right in the

middle of my scale is the fact that for

most of its main sites you don't need to

buy a ticket and also the city of Zagreb

offers free Wi-Fi I hope now you have

some better understanding of how not

expensive Zagreb is if you liked this
