Britanski trg Flea Market

Britanski trg Flea Market is one of Zagreb’s vivid symbols, always busy and full of people in search for a nice antique or a thoughtful present with a peculiar charm.

Zagreb is home to two major flea markets, each of them with its distinct atmosphere and clientele. One of them is a huge bric-a-brac which takes place on Wednesday and Sunday at the Hrelić on Sajmišna Cesta, south of the River Sava. The other one looks rather like an antique and collectibles fair, than a flea market, considering its relative fanciness and the quality of the merchandise sold there.

Set on an open square a stone throw away from the city’s most famous square – Ban Jelačić Square – Britanski trg Flea Market (British Square) is one of Zagreb’s vivid symbols, always busy and full of people in search for a nice antique or a thoughtful present with a peculiar charm.

Every Sunday, Britanski market’s fruits and vegetables stalls are cleared, and an attractive antique market and bric-a-brac is laid out, with over 100 stallholders trading goods from first thing in the morning.

From second hand light shades to antique porcelain artifacts, everything is available at Britanski Flea market. A non exhaustive list of items sold on the wooden trestle tables of the Britanski trg flea market include: Paintings, jewellery, old currency, badges, glass bottles, antique furniture, antique cameras and optical instruments, mechanical spare parts, old pictures on glass plates, antique books and maps, gramophones with their own LPs, photo frames, religious icons, decorative mirrors, posters, crockery, silver, old farming tools, lamp shades and much more. And as usual with flea markets, prices are subjected to heavy bargaining

Britanski trg flea market is a lively local gathering, and a perfect way to experience Zagreb’s local culture and traditions. A visit to such place gets visitors involved in a world of colour, antiques, kitsch, dusty books, shiny porcelain and scratched tin cups. Every item has a story and it’s hard not to feel fanciful in a surrounding like this.

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
