May the 23rd, 2023 – The City of Zagreb has evolved from the place where one lands in order to travel further to a coastal destination somewhere in Istria or Dalmatia to a tourist destination in its own right. The British Post Office Travel Money’s list has put it in seventh place on its list of value for money city breaks.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, according to research by the very well read British portal Post Office Travel Money page, which conducts a price barometer every single year, comparing costs in cities across Europe for tourists from the United Kingdom, Zagreb took an impressive seventh place on the list of the most affordable European cities.

Namely, the total cost of a so-called city break is calculated based on twelve typical items one might need for such a trip. This included, among other things, the cost of drinks, dinner for two with a bottle of locally made wine, two weekend nights spent in three-star accommodation, city sightseeing and city transport.

On this occasion, Martina Bienenfeld, the director of the Tourist Board of the City of Zagreb, said the following: “First of all, we are happy that we were included in the aforementioned research, because only those cities that the British listed as their top choices for visiting were included in the selection.

Likewise, it’s really interesting to see that Zagreb came in fifth overall in terms of the cost of eating a three-course meal with a bottle of wine, and second in terms of the most favourable prices for visiting the city’s cultural and historical sights. We were happy when we saw this research and we believe that it will further popularise Zagreb on the British tourism market. In this regard, I’d like to point out that, since the beginning of the year, sixteen percent more guests from Great Britain have stayed in the city, who have achieved twelve percent more overnight stays, that is, we have recorded almost 10,000 arrivals and 26,500 overnight stays in total.”

It’s worth noting that while many facilities such as banks and larger shops offer travel money in the United Kingdom, the Post Office is and always has remained a firm favourite among the majority of the British public, who use their service for the exchange of pound sterling into euros. As such, Zagreb’s promotion by the Travel Money page will provide more of a spring in the step of the capital’s tourism than one might initially expect.
