25 Jul Great connections with Brussels Airlines
Searching for some great choice from traveler’s bucket list? Brussels is always a good idea, and even more in summer months when the city lives to its fullest. With Brussels Airlines you can fly from Zagreb 5 times per week and even catch return ticket from 69 Euro per person.
Luckily we had the opportunity to experience the Brussels Airlines flight, and besides a very friendly crew and modern ambiance, we were positively surprised with delicious, freshly prepared food, and of course, happy to be offered the Belgian chocolate.
Those who has few days more and want to visit other cities in Belgium it is worth trying Hi Belgium Pass which allows you to get a return flight ticket on Brussels Airlines, unlimited train rides to different Belgian cities, and free access to a wealth of tourist attractions in only one package costing 149 Eur.
