Our clinic offers free accommodation (Rooms Connect within the clinic or external accommodations nearby) for all patients who do not live in Croatia. Our patients often bring someone along, so that they are not alone in Zagreb during their dental treatment. Oftentimes they also bring their children, so we have decided to put together a small guide to help you plan your time in Zagreb with children.
Unfortunately, some websites do not have an English version, but we hope that you will receive enough information using Google. 😊
