Zagreb - Post Report Question and Answers

Is this a "shopping post"? Are there interesting handicrafts, artwork, antiques, or other items that people typically buy there?

Not really a shopping post, I don't think. - Jan 2023

When I was shopping for Christmas souvenirs, it was a little hard to find something that was explicitly Croatian. Croatian Ties are iconic. We have found some great artwork that is affordable here, but you need to visit the shops - there are not a lot of stands that sell things like that. - Jul 2018

Travel. Olive oil, pumpkin oil, truffles and truffle oil. - Aug 2014

Just travel, travel, travel. - Jun 2014

Croatia is known for inventing the neck tie and the ballpoint pen. Other than that there isn't much you can get locally that is extremely nice. - Feb 2014

There aren't too many especially unique local items one would want for souvenirs. Naive art is huge in Croatia, but paintings are pretty expensive. Truffles make for good souvenirs, but that's about it. - Jan 2012

None. There isn't much in the way of crafts or handmade stuff. Perhaps all they sell is just their lavender stuff...but it gets boring after a while. - Dec 2011

Cheese! - Oct 2010

Not many, actually. I was disappointed at Christmas to find the fairs stocked with things I'd find at Target at home! - Mar 2009

Lace, silver traditional jewelry, some crystal, trips to the coast. - Mar 2009
