We spent our final day in Zagreb, Croatia’s capital city. Zagreb is split into the Lower Town, home to the city’s museums and theater. The Upper Town (which is literally “upper”) is more charming and historic in my not-so-expert opinion seeing as I spent all of five hours walking around. There you’ll find Zagreb’s two most famous churches, its government buildings, and charming alleyways that reveal all sorts of surprises.
In the Upper Town, we chanced upon a local dessert shop called The Cookie Factory run by two brothers. I fell in love with the place. The modern, bright decor is inviting and clever right down to the sign in the women’s bathroom declaring “You are pretty.” Forget Starbucks. The Cookie Factory is where I want to sit and write my best-selling novel.
