Zagreb

Zagreb boasts a combination of Austro-Hungarian and Socialist architecture, but it is beloved for its outdoor cafe culture.
Kick off your visit on the 4th (Tue): admire the masterpieces at Croatian Museum of Naive Art, then take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Mark's Church, then wander the streets of Upper Town (Gornji Grad), and finally examine the collection at Museum of Broken Relationships. Here are some ideas for day two: stroll the grounds of Mirogoj Cemetery, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Cathedral of the Assumption, pick up some local products at Dolac Market, then appreciate the history behind Jelacic Square (Trg Bana Josipa Jelacica), then take in panoramic vistas at Zagreb 360° - Zagreb Eye, and finally don't miss a visit to Tkalciceva.

Dubrovnik

Along the Dalmation Coast, the city of Dubrovnik has become famous for its pedestrian-only Old Town surrounded by fortress walls, and its historical heft has earned it World Heritage Site status.
Change things up with a short trip to Cavtat Old Town in Cavtat (about 34 minutes away). There's much more to do: head off the coast to Island of Lokrum, contemplate the long history of Gradske Zidine, don't miss a visit to Pile Gate, and paddle through the water with a kayaking and canoeing tour.
