We walked down into the city and ate lunch at Baltazar.  Not really suited for the backpackers.  All the waiters were wearing tuxedos, and the cliental all wearing suits.  And then there was us.  However, the food was decently priced, i had a steak grill for 70kn.

After lunch we went to the Galerija Klovicevi Dvori.  The only exhibition open was the sculptures by Robert Franges-Milhanovic.  The price was 20kn, which i think was overpriced.  The museum housed mostly pictures and casts of the sculpture's works, which can be found throughout the city.  To top it off, the explanations of the sculptures were printing only in Croatian.  This museum could be skipped.

Next, we went to Zagreb City Museum.  Entry was also 20kn, but this museum was well worth the price.  The museum traces the history of Zagreb from ancient times to the Roman occupation to present day.  Definitely plan on spending more than 3 hours at this museum. 

We wanted to see more of Zagreb but we were getting rained on, so we went to the train station a little early.  We booked a train for 90kn and it would take 2 1/2 hours to get to Slovenia's capital city.  Once in Ljubljana, we walked around for awhile looking for hostels but the first few were all booked.  We were directed to Dijaski Dom Tabor, a private college that leases out its dorm rooms during the summer.  The beds were 18 euro each per night.  The rooms were large and clean, and the free internet was always available when needed.

We had dinner at Cafe Romeo, an ecclectic mexican style restaurant inside the city.  It was after 10pm and it was practicaly the last restaurant open.  We split the nachos and quesodillas and had 6 glasses of wine all for 20 euro.
