Skalinska street is a small street leading up from the well-known and busy Tkalčićeva up to Opatovina and the Zagreb cathedral. Although only approximately 100 meters long, it hosts a couple of interesting spots and has recently been experiencing a kind of a renaissance, strongly influenced by the renaissance of the neighboring Tkalča.
In it you will find the “Nokturno” complex, a combination of two restaurants and hotel/hostel. The restaurants “Nokturno” and “Skalinada” offer a varied choice of Italian and Croatian food. Although they would hardly receive a Michelin star, the food is quite tasty and surprisingly cheap for downtown Zagreb.
Skalinska also recently acquired two new culinary hotspots – La Štruk and Umami grill, both bright stars on the Zagreb’s awakening gastro sky. So, if you’re wandering around town and all the sightseeing gets you exhausted and hungry, head to Skalinska and choose from an offer of cuisines from around the world.
Apart for the sleeping/food question, this little street is quite charming as a passage from Tkalčićeva up to Dolac market, Opatovina (another street filled with small cafes) and Kaptol, the religious-part of Zagreb’s two hills history.
