hotel seasons

Zagreb hotels have a pattern similar to many European resort areas where prices are at their highest during July and August, and the general high season lasts from April through October. Hostels in Zagreb don’t vary their prices much through the year, though you’ll have a much easier time finding a bed or a room during the low season from January through March.

Not many years ago, Croatia was like the newly discovered alternative to Italy that was less crowded and way cheaper, but things have changed and it’s not terribly cheap anymore. Zagreb is still definitely cheaper than Rome, but now they aren’t very far apart in many respects.

It’s true that the main attractions continue to be either free or fairly cheap, so at least you won’t need to spend a fortune once you arrive, but expenses like transportation can really add up quickly if you aren’t careful. Hotels in Zagreb are still definitely cheaper than similar places in Rome, though during peak summer season they might not seem like bargains. Some Zagreb hostels continue to offer good value to backpacker types, however.

Food and drinks are also cheaper than they are in Italy and yet noticeably more expensive than they were only a few years ago. Unlike many other large European cities, at least it’s not impossible to find modestly priced simple meals. Drink prices aren’t too bad, and there are some happy hour deals around if you look.

Weather Advice

Zagreb has fairly mild all year long, with warm summers that rarely become scorching, and temperatures cool off nicely at night. Winters do get cold and it does snow, but it rarely accumulates to the point that it could disturb your travel plans. Spring and fall are typically nice with moderate temperatures and rainfall.
