EAT, PRAY, LOVE… IN ZAGREB
Remember the above titled movie in which Liz (Julia Roberts) after failed marriage and then failed relationship decides to search for a different way of life in Italy, India and finally Bali? Not that we (during life’s up’s and down’s) wouldn’t do the same at some point. However, maybe the small life pleasures can be found much closer, possibly at home, where we already live. They are here, it’s up to us to discover them. Here is how you can be Liz for a day, in Zagreb!
Eat: Ristorante Carpaccio
Want to feel the spirit of Italy? Reserve the table with a street view at the Carpaccio restaurant in the city centre. Ambiance of a typical Italian”trattoria” and fine pasta will make it easy to see to see Don Corleone himself in flesh… or at the very least Marlon Brando.
Address: Carpaccio, Nikola Tesla Street 14
Pray: Buddhist Centre, Zagreb
Regular practice of Chan meditation (tso-chan/zazen) is held at the Centre every Tuesday and Friday from 19:00- 21:00. Everyone who has passed a course of meditation or has necessary experience in Chan meditation is welcome to participate. Thinking about joining the activities of the Centre? Come to Đorđićeva 7 and familiarize yourself with everything that interests you. Entrance is free and be prepared to take off your shoes and sit on the comfy pillows.
Address: Buddhist Centre Zagreb, Đorđićeva 7
Love: Khao Sun
The essence of life’s small pleasures is to relax and enjoy yourself once in a while, isn’t it? Where to put that in practice, better then at the Thai massage parlor. Khao Sun, in Zagreb, is designed in the style of a Buddhist temple. After the traditional massage given by two Thai women, original Thai tea is awaiting for your pleasure. What else can you ask for?
Address: Khao SUN Zagreb, parlor of traditional Thailand medicinal massage, Medvedgradska 49
