The rainbow flag doesn't flutter quite as brilliantly in Zagreb as in nearby European capitals, but that's not to say Croatia's capital hasn't got a characterful queer scene of its own. Although compact, a range of organisations and queer-friendly venues work hard to make sure the city's LGBT+ scene is as inclusive and buzzing as possible. Read on for the best gay bars and queer spaces in Zagreb.
LGBT+ venues and events
Open on Friday and Saturday nights from 11pm until the early hours, Rush is a fabulously trashy gay club located on the concrete outliers of the city centre. Hot, sweaty and smoky, this club isn't for the fainthearted. It draws a mostly-male party, but the whole LGBT+ rainbow is represented, and the crowd mixes up for ‘90s themed pop nights. Perhaps the only dancefloor in Zagreb where drag queens and shirtless muscle men shimmer to Balkan turbo-folk.
