In Zagreb there are lots of supermarkets (Konzum, Billa, Interspar, Diona) where you can buy groceries. On the main square there is a Muller which offers wide range of products (cosmetics and perfumes, toys, everything for the household…) and there are also a few Drogerie Markt (DM) stores  offering similar products.

If you need a pharmacy you will find them all over the city. The City Phamarcy is owned by the City of Zagreb and the one on the main square is open every day all day. In Petrinjska street there is a herbal pharmacy Lavanda Mia that works from Monday until Saturday. In Jurišićeva just off the main Square near McDonald’s you will find a private pharmacy Farmacia which also works from Monday until Saturday.

For clothes you just walk through Ilica and you will find many shops. Some of shops in downtown remain closed on Sunday, although this is rapidly changing in the effort to revitilize downtown shopping (as opposite to suburbian shopping mall culture). On Cvjetni Square you will find Cvjetni shopping center, open from Monday until Saturday from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m. and on Sunday and during the holidays from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. If you like unique pieces of clothes, Zagreb has a number of local design stores with really nice clothes, like Nebo, Iggy Concept Store, and Hippy Garden.

Zagreb also has some quirky vintage stores like Ulicni ormar (our favorite!), Vintage Mademoiselle & Antiquité, and Lola.

If you would like to buy a Croatian souvenir go to the Croatian Designer Superstore in Marticeva Street or Take me home in Tomiceva street (near the Funicular). You will find all sorts of products which are not too expensive, can easily fit in your bag and are created by Croatian designers. In Radiceva Street go to the Museum shop “The Story of the Salt” where you can find out how people used to produce salt in the place called Nin (near the City of Zadar). You can also buy some ‘salty’ souvenirs.

Shopping in Zagreb

Money and ATMs

The Croatian currency is Kuna so make sure you have enough kuna for your trip. You can exchange money in the banks, exchange offices, hotel receptions. The biggest banks are mostly part of the international banking groups. Credit cards can be used in almost all places (hotels, restaurants, shops) but we recommend you ask the personnel just in case.

ATM machines you can find everywhere and they have an option for different languages.

Internet in Zagreb Croatia

In the center of the city there is free WiFi (on the main square, on Zrinjevac park, on the main railway station, Dolac Market). Many of the restaurants and bars also have free WiFi but they will usually have a password which is written on the bill. Almost all accommodation come with free WiFi internet.
