Depends when you are going, sometimes the rabbi from Zagreb sets up shop in one of the hotels

Not this year

Seems like there is a synagogue but I'd assume its not being used.
I know chances are low but we are 4 and looking for minyan for shabbos aug 24

You can always go and try your luck but officially there are no services. And as of a couple years ago no AC either....

We didn't have to time to see the synagogue, but speaking to others that went, it's a must-see, even if not for a minyan

Aside from Zagreb, I'd say your best shot is in Dubrovnik

Contact Chabad in Zagreb. To my understanding, the seasonal Chabad of Dubrovnik (which was closed last year) lives in Zagreb. You'll get the best information from him.

And the oldest Sephardic one in Europe. When I was there a couple of years ago they claimed they still have a minyan every shabbos, which would make them the oldest active Sephardic shul on Earth.

Can't answer your question specifically for April (i went in the summer), but it's an absolute must-see. I can only imagine it's nicer because less people will be there

Thank you

I would love to see another TR on it, with pictures! It's also very worthwhile to rent a car and drive when it's light outside

+100 about it being a must see!

No idea about April. I was there in August and some parts were very crowded but there was also plenty of quiet areas once you go past the "bridge". It was also insanely hot but April should have pleasant weather.
