City of Zagreb, Croatia
By air plane, it is less than an hour. Nonetheless, we enjoy traveling on the road than the air these days as on the plane, you cannot see as much as on the road. On the road, you get to see wonderful colours like this:-

The Zagreb Cathedral has a nice mood around. Not the same as the one in Strasbourg, France. This one does not have a gothic feel. It has some elements of Baroque after it was rebuild due to the heavy damages by the Tartars.

The part of the stairs in the photo of the Zagreb Cathedral captures the mood very well. Even the colours are very special. Don't you think?:)

This part in the city has typical elements of the Upper Town, quite similar to Hungary afterall. The cost of living in Zagreb is 13.87% lower than Budapest.
