Dolac


Open-air food markets make up one of Zagreb’s most attractive features.

Open-air food markets make up one of Zagreb’s most attractive features. Almost every district in the city has one, although the most famous one is Dolac, close to the cathedral. Here people sell fresh fruit, vegetables, meat and fish every day of the week. This bustling place is affectionately known as “the belly of Zagreb”, due to the mouth-watering array of irresistible foodstuffs brought here from all parts of Croatia. The market dates from the early 20th century, when the city authorities decided to tear down all houses on Dolac to make room for a modern marketplace on three levels.
