Because Qatar Airways uses the new A380 Airbus, most departures will be from Gate 9 and11.

Croatia’s capital is a busy, attractive and surprising destination, filled with a fabulous selection of architecture, art, sculpture and music. Recently discovered by tourists, it is now becoming an important eastern European destination that is also drawing a lot of attention from business investors and entrepreneurs eager to do business with the burgeoning number of high-tech companies in and around the city.
Book a flight to Zagreb with Qatar Airways and you’ll discover a city with a rich heritage filled with culture and fine art, and one of the best preserved medieval street plans of any city in Europe. The people are warm, welcoming and incredibly friendly, making this a destination to remember.
The city is split into two, the Upper Town (Gornji grad) and the Lower Town (Donji grad). Here you’ll find most of the attractions, restaurants and entertainment, with the Upper Town offering glimpses of the best preserved medieval aspects of the city. The focus of the Upper Town has to be the cathedral, which is a stunning piece of architecture and the epicentre of the city. The original 13th century structure was destroyed in an earthquake, and in the 19th century the entire building was rebuilt in the Neo-Gothic style. Today it is one of the biggest attractions in the city.
Strossmayer šetalište, or Strossmayer Walkway is a hive of activity in the summer, with street artists and entertainers, and offers wonderful views of the capital. At the top of Radićeva street is the Old Town Gate, another focal point for the city and a beautifully tranquil spot.
The city has plenty of museums to explore, including the Archaeological Museum, which has a particularly fine collection of Egyptian artefacts as well as some ancient Croatian relics. And for a little natural splendour, head out of town to Medvednica mountain, which overlooks Zagreb and is also home to the well-preserved fortress of Medvedgrad.
