Everybody knows that I love to travel and discovered new places and If you follow me on instagram you have already saw some stories I had made in Zagreb, Croatia. I spent some days in the capital of Croatia to relax and discover this amazing city. Let’s start, next stop, Zagreb!
All of my friends asked me, why Zagreb? In the middle of coronavirus pandemic most of the countries are closed with you are flying from Brazil. I had been working in Home Office since 2019 and it had been a long time since I went on vacation to take a long trip and be able to really rest and recharge my energy. I made a research and saw the it was possible to travel to Croatia, was open for turism. In the middle of my researches I saw a lots of stuffs about the country on Google and see how beautiful is Zagreb. That’s when I decided, next stop, Zagreb!
What to do before flight?
Make a internacional trip it’s not easy, in pandemic times, very difficult but I needed that trip.
The first step was check all the rules and papers I needed to travel and than decided when I will be flight, so let’s make the check list. When you choose to travel to Europe you will need I passport, round-trip tickets, health insurance, PCR-Test and money. The passport must be valid for more than 6 months after the return date, so check the dates of you passport.
At the airport, on the Emigration they will ask you the day you will arrive back to Brazil, so buy both tickets and think about how many days you want o stay because of the follow itens.
The number of days you want to stay abroad will determine how many days you have to buy for the heath insurance and how much money will you have to take. The heath insurance need to start at the day you departure and finish when you arrive at Brazil, so think about this for not have problems and you need to check about money too.
Each country determines a minimum amount of money for each day you will stay in the country. So it’s important to get some money with you to show in the Emigration in case of they ask you to see the real money.
Zagreb is the capital of Croatia with 806,341 of population. Although it is a big city, Zagreb is not like São Paulo or Rio de Janeiro, in this case, we have a calm, peaceful and clean city. And when I say clean I mean not finding garbage on the streets.
The water is drinkable and fresh from several sources around the city. People living in Croatia are proud of their water and offering tourists to fill their water bottles.
When you are at the town you have some squares in downtown with green areas and others with water sources creating scene to take a lot of pictures. There ares beautiful churches, the most famous St. Mark’s Church where there is a colorful mosaic on the ceiling.
If you are looking for a place to travel in a different way of the normal routes, Zagreb should be your place. I really like the city, the people and the weather. I felt very safe and welcomed by the local people, they are very welcoming and try to help you. I visited some beautiful areas and saw greatest squares and parks and churches, everything was perfect. I want to go back there someday.
