Champions League qualifying game in Croatia

Just got back after a nice summer vacation again in Croatia, visiting family.
A great place that I can whole heartedly recommend, a tiny country but a wonderful Adriatic coast with some vacation sites indicating as the next French Riviera type in Europe.
While in the capital Zagreb, just like the year before when in I took in the World Cup qualifier against Kosovo, this year I went to a Champions League game at Maksimir stadium agains the locals Dinamo Zagreb against Young Boys from Bern.
The place was sold out out and unfortunately the home side lost 2-1 late with two quick goals from the visitors and the 2 game aggregate of 3-2.
The home team now drops to the Europe League playoffs.
Has anyone here visited Croatia, with your thoughts on the trip and also what about any Champions League games throughout Europe?

Was there this past Summer during the World Cup.
Simply incredible.

I am envious.
