Nobody really knows how Hrelic came to be. But shortly after its founding, it turned into one of Zagreb’s most legendary sites. On the farthest outskirts of Croatian capital, you can see this large fair of used goods. From clothes to shoes, from vintage items to computer components sold without guarantee, everything can be found on this strange and unique place. Sounds interesting? Then come with a large bag, sharpen your bargain talents, and indulge into the craziest shopping spree you ever took part in!
How to reach Hrelic? The easiest way is to take a cab. The average price from Zagreb’s center should be around 50 HRK / 6.50 €. If you have your own vehicle, you will have to pay 10 HRK / 1.30 € for parking. If you use a tram, take numbers 14 to Zaprude or 6 to Jadranski Most, and walk a bit next to the causeway.
Hrelic is organized every Sunday and Wednesday. Coming early in the morning is a good idea (you don’t want others to buy all the good stuff) but coming late has an advantage of huge sales. Be advised, Hrelic is not the cleanest space in the world, but its charm is undeniable, as can be seen from the photos below.
