Formerly the palace of the family Šuflaj, one of the homes of the famous Grič Witch, a place where composers created and musicians played, this is a home of travellers, world wonderers, writers, artists, poets and painters. More a museum then apartment. Situated in the heart of old upper town Zagreb, between the Strossmayer walkway, the Artpark, the Grič Park and the St. Markos church, this cosy home of 75m2 with a gallery above is the perfect place for your Zagreb trip.

The space
IMPORTANT COVID 19 INFO:
We clean and disinfect all relevant surfaces starting from the door handle. We do it according to COVID 19 guidelines given here on AirBNB and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In the apartment you will also have 100% alcohol disinfectant for your use. We will look that you have a safe and warm place. However, please do take preventive measures and if you feel sick or weak please let us know so we can adjust accordingly.

JUST TO NOTE, UPON ARRIVAL THE QUEEN SIZE BED WILL BE MADE. IF SPECIALLY REQUESTED, FOR A 3RD PERSON A FOLDABLE SINGLE BED IS SET.

THE WASHING MACHINE IS ONLY FOR LONGER STAYS (3 days plus).

More or less, we have everything you need. A gallery with a queen size bed and a good cosy mattress, views of old upper town Zagreb in all directions, cosy reading places, a hammock, heating, cooling, and in addition a fireplace which works only for special occasions during winter times, a new screen with Netflix we pay for, good quality music with a record player, free homemade olive and coconut oil soap, free homemade natural air fresheners, free homemade natural deodorant, a fully equipped kitchen, and do not worry, the dish washer works for you. We work for the last decade in environmental protection, so we recycle, and would kindly ask of you to do the same. In the apartment recycling bins are provided, all garbage bags are compostable and biodegradable, all cleaning detergents are ecological, all paper is recycled paper, we do not use synthetic fibers, so you will sit or sleep only on natural cotton and wool. Ouh yeah, and all devices and systems are energy efficient. Did we say that you will get free natural homemade olive and coconut oil soap for your stay? You will also get a recipe for a homemade natural soap "1 hour work for 1 year of soap". If you love natural, if you love wood, if you love central, if you love cosy, if you love eco, if you love art, if you love stories, this is a place for you.

THE FIRST AID KIT IS IN THE BROWN LEATHER CASE IN THE CORNER BESIDE THE STAIRS. THE FIRE EXTINGUISHER IS UNDER THE STAIRS BEHIND THE CURTAINS.

Where you’ll be

Zagreb, Croatia

The apartment is situated in the heart of old Zagreb, the upper town, surrounded by the Grič Park, the Old Funicular, the Strossmayer walkway, the Saint Marcos church and the Grič Tower with the famous Grič Cannon. So, be prepared for some "BOOOM!" as the cannon fires every day at noon! Why? In the olden times, the people used to check their clocks at this time and reset them if necessary.
Below the house there is always something going on, like the Strossmayer Walkway with some occasional life jazz, or the parks around. Just every time you leave the apartment take another path down.

Hy there, my name is Marko, and I am also a fellow traveler, environmental engineer, musician and surfer. Traveling becomes easier when places you visit become your temporary home. This is also my goal, that anybody visiting our house feels like home. I also deeply care about the environment, so all our places are equipped with none toxic detergents, homemade soaps for the whole body, compostable garbage bags and more.
