A few weeks ago I had the chance to visit Zagreb with work. I'd never been to Croatia before and to be honest, I am really looking forward to going back with John for another visit, hopefully with some more time to spend exploring.

I was working with a group of other people on an accreditation panel, and it was a privilege to spend time in such an interesting place while meeting other people from all over Europe.

The main square is surrounded by some amazing colourful buildings with so many architectural details - each one different.

There is no shortage of museums, galleries and other places to see and spend time admiring. Plenty to fill a long weekend.

St Mark's Church is situated in a square surrounded by government buildings in the old Upper town, one of the oldest areas of the city, still lit at night by over 250 gas lamplights.

The front of the Cathedral is covered with carved stone filigree details - the craftsmanship is perfect.

I didn't get a chance to track down any yarn shops, so I do think another visit is in order to remedy that, don't you?
