Zagreb in early summer

With plenty of city fests, sunny days and nature excursions within easy reach, Zagreb is at its best in early summer. Here are just a few suggestions of fantastic things to do

Zagreb's appealing al fresco vibe, great nightlife and guaranteed warm weather makes it an enjoyable city break in summer. Summer festivals like INmusic and Strossmartre are keeping people around for longer, before half the city packs its bags and heads for the coast in midsummer. Here are just ten suggestions of fabulous things to do in Zagreb this summer.


The Cure, Foals, Suede, Garbage, LP, The Hives, Kurt Vile & The Violators, Johnny Marr, Thievery Corporation, Frank Turner & Sleeping Souls, Sofi Tukker, Peter Bjorn & John, Skindred, Zeal & Ardor and many more Zagreb’s city festival INmusic offers three days of rock and indie fun next to a man-made lake in the large Jarun park, west of Zagreb's city centre. Croatia's premier international live music event, INmusic has put Zagreb definitively on the music map. Each year organisers coax some of the best modern rock and indie bands, cult heroes and world musicians to the city, along with many international attendees. There’s a great modern campsite open for eight days during the festival. And there are plenty of afterparties and activities happening in and around the city.

Strossmartre: Summer on Stross

This summer-long series of outdoor events offers an outstandingly varied programme of concerts, art-and-craft stalls and downright unusual happenings (the best mongrel dog show, finest wine-and-soda spritzer competition) in the lovely, leafy setting of the Upper Town’s Strossmayer Promenade. There’s usually a local band playing every night, and a couple of al-fresco bars at the scene make this a great place to hang out on balmy evenings.
