Orient Express

📍 Ul. Nikole Tesle 10, 10000, Zagreb, Croatia

If you want to go back to the 1920s in Croatia, visit this cafe. This cafe looks like you're inside an old vintage train, thus the name.

It almost looks like the set of Madmen, it even has the smell of cigarettes lingering in the air, so be prepared for that. Make sure to not miss this place during your visit, it is hidden away in downtown Teslina, but once you step inside you are transported back in time.

For bizarre and creative...

Museum of Broken Relationships

📍 Ćirilometodska ul. 2, 10000, Zagreb, Croatia

Looking for a place to mend your sorrows? Don't look elsewhere because this is where you need to be. So here is the story, an artistic couple were in a relationship, split up, and realized they had many shared possessions. Torn between who should keep it, they decided the only option would be to open a museum and showcase the items there (because that is the first thing that comes to mind). Other heartbroken people began to reach out and take part in this heartbreak warfare, and before you know it the Museum of Broken Relationships was born. You might need to order a double espresso to keep your energy up.
