Zagreb - Part One.

Just returned from a very enjoyable trip to Zagreb with my sister. The capital of Croatia, Zagreb is a beautiful little city with some stunning landmarks and colourful streets. The main square, named for Ban Jelacic, is the central hub for both pedestrians and the excellent tram system. The people in Zagreb are very friendly, polite and helpful, and this added to our enjoyment of the city. The language is very similar to Bulgarian, a sound that I am very familiar with having visited that country so many times. Certainly, many parts of the city and the surrounding areas reminded me of Bulgaria. Below is the first set of a selection of photos taken in and around Zagreb. I will post separate selections from the magnificent Zagreb Cathedral, and also the immense Mirogoj Cemetary, each of which deserve their own blog post.Venturing outside the city, we completed a strenuous hike to Medvedgrad Castle, and the following day a gentler hike up to Samobor Fortress, which overlooks the town of Samobor.All the photos were taken with the EM5 and one of the Panasonics 14mm F/2.5, 20mm F/1.7, Olympus 45mm F/1.8 and 60mm F/2.8. Four primes but very easy and light to carry, and exceedingly sharp. Beats hauling the DSLR any day.I hope you enjoy this first selection, with more to come soon. And perhaps make your own visit to this rather wonderful little city.
