My review of a tour of Bath with Showaround taking in all the best independent coffee shops and cafes.

Zagreb is dull and uninspiring. Like a tired, cheap version of Vienna it has pretty buildings aplenty but an anticlimactic scope in its history compared to other, similar cities.
It is very different from the other cities that I have seen so far in the Balkans in that it has an architectural and spiritual affinity with Central Europe. I mean spiritual in the sense of ornate Catholicism but also in the general vibe of the city.
