Though it is not a big country, its landscape, climate, history, cooking, and wines change dramatically from region to region. This trip will focus on the capital, Zagreb, where we’ll spend two days focusing on the Habsburg and Ottoman heritage, and the Istrian peninsula, which is said by locals to be the gourmet capital of the country.
