Slight step back)

Katya has already written about Zagreb, but not all the "beautiful" details.

In a nutshell: we didn't like the city.

All vision is purely from his own, bicycle bell tower.

The tram is very developed as a public transport. This is a plus for people - it is quiet, environmentally friendly, and so on. For cyclists, it's HELL.

A bunch of rails that cross the roadway, not always at right angles. Bicycle paths, of which there are not many, are also built according to the ragul and again cross the rails in 60-70% of cases not at right angles.

If there is no bike path, then either ride along the sidewalk, where there are a lot of passers-by and for some reason very arrogant and boorish, or along the road where the rails are again)

+ all hatches (vodatelekomm) are not flush with the roadway. Sometimes the difference is a few millimeters, but more often it is 1-4 centimeters.

Summing up, we get a dangerous city)

We "distinguished ourselves" again)

Putting the bag in the storage room (15 kusutki = 2 euros), fastening the trailer with 2 locks to the bike parking at the station, we went for a ride around Zagreb in tandem.

After a little twisting around the center, we stopped at the gastronomic street. All in pubs cafes and so on. The prices are normal, they don’t hurt much, especially if you choose places where a lot of people sit.

Several times a day it started to rain, we either rode under it or waited while drinking coffee.

Toward evening, I had to go to a friend of Dario's for a check-in. We sat down and took off in the mustang. BUT, it started to rain again and then we felt all the "charms" of this city described above.

Driving in the rain between the tram tracks, in order not to fly into a hatch that was 3-5 cm below the asphalt level, I decided to try to sharply cross the wet rails. The angle wasn't enough...

Fall. I have a worn elbow, soiled jersey.

Katya has a skinned thigh, a soiled jersey, a bruised shoulder and a fear of riding in the rain.

If there is a choice whether to go to Zagreb - I would not advise. After Budapest, this is not a capital, but a paradise. some center. But maybe I haven't seen much. . .

The next couple of years, I definitely won’t return to it, this is not my city)

p. s. jerseys that our friends from KM Wear made for us survived the drops without problems. They didn’t even mess around, but Katyukhin’s patterns didn’t come off. Quality - price - durability, everything is in the best traditions of KM)
