The city of Zagreb, whilst modern and cosmopolitan in its outlook, still retains much of its medieval architecture and, as a result, has to be one of the most picturesque capitals in the world. This stunning architecture can be explored in the Old Town (locally known as Gornji Grad,) a district that is rich in baroque buildings and home to many fascinating museums and galleries. As the capital of Croatia, Zagreb is also a key commercial and financial centre – welcoming many business travellers, as well as tourists, with typical Croatian hospitality.
Perth Airport, Australia’s fourth busiest airport, serves the west of the continent and links passengers to destinations all over the world.
Qatar Airways flights from Perth regularly travel to Doha, making this a convenient departure point for both business and leisure travellers.
The typically laid-back Australian nature makes this a very friendly airport too, with helpful staff available throughout.
Parking and transportation
Perth Airport is very business-focused, providing plenty of parking and easy transportation to, and from, the city of Perth for business users.
Long-term parking is just 10 minutes away from the International Terminal 1, and a shuttle bus runs every few minutes from the parking area to the terminal. Both short and long-term parking areas are patrolled by 24-hour security.
The Perth Airport Connect shuttle bus runs from East Perth train station, and other locations in the city, to Terminal 3. International travellers can then connect with a shuttle bus service to take them to Terminal 1. Covered taxi ranks are located outside the main entrance to the terminal.
Arriving in Perth
Qatar Airways flights from Perth leave from International Terminal 1. The terminal has a number of lounges (some of which are airline-specific). Security is tight in Australia, so ensure that you do not have any banned items in your handbags and carry-on luggage to avoid delays.
Facilities and amenities
Wi-Fi is available throughout Terminal 1 (note that there may be some not-spots in areas close to ongoing construction). There are a number of retail outlets in Terminal 1, including duty-free shops and others that offer Australian goods – ideal for buying last-minute souvenirs.
A food court provides passengers with a selection of light bites, snacks, drinks and substantial meals with an international flavour.
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.
