This short trip was a great addition to our Croatian experience, since it showed us a completely different side of the country. We saw the amazing Plitice Lakes Park - truly a fairyland of mist, waterfalls, clear lakes, and reflections. I expected an elf to pop out at every corner. Zagreb is a sophisticated capital city that blends the modern and the ancient. Lots of interesting museums too. Our guide, Luci, who lives in Zagreb, was both knowledgeable and gracious. In contrast to the summer weather on the coast, it was chilly and raining in Zagreb, and a couple of us were under-dressed. Luci lent us coats - talk about taking the shirt off your back for others! It really helped. Accommodations and meals were national park quality in the Park, and excellent in Zagreb. I really recommend that since you've made the effort to come all the way to Croatia, that you add on these few extra days -your appreciation and understanding of the country will increase exponentially.
