Opened in 1930, the Dolac open-air market is recognized by old and young, rich and poor, as an integral part of Zagreb life. Just five minutes walk from the main centre, the market was built to replace the run-down Dolac housing estate which, in its dilapidated state, was not considered fitting for the city centre. Now home to hundreds of stalls selling a multitude of fresh products, Croatian baked specialities and countless Croatian craft goods, the Dolac market is now considered to be Zagrebís belly. Itís not just for the tourists though - Supermarket fever hasnít taken over completely yet so the market continues to be a fundamental piece of Zagrebís character. If thatís still not tempting enough, go for no other reason but to sharpen your bartering skills.
