Zagreb - Day 3 - October 17, 2013

We spent the morning on Ulica Tkalcica, a famous street lined with shops and coffee bars.  So much to see! Take a look!

It's hard to over emphasize what a pleasant morning this was.
One of the best shops was a small gallery of Croatian Naive Art.
It was a great place to buy prints!

These young ladies were all dressed up for Halloween.  A little early perhaps, but they were drumming up enthusiasm for a Halloween party.

A name like Dona doesn't show up very often - at least not outside of Mexico.  In Zagreb, I saw it twice.  I need to find out what it means.  I'm sure it's something sweet.

This was our third visit to Zagreb, but the first two visits were limited to the train station.  We had had the idea that Zagreb was a big dirty city, light on attractions and heavy on industry.  What a nice surprise the Old Town was! We will definitely plan to come back, but for now it was time to get back to the hotel and pack up. Tomorrow we will be on our way to Istanbul!
