About

Zagreb is everything that … one does not associate with Croatia. Instead of a typical Dalmatian town with white stone houses set against an azure sea and Mediterranean climate, we get a large European city vibrating with culture. 1,000 years of history, two mediaeval old towns, city walls built in fear of Turkish invasion, Baroque villas of the local socialite and a modernly designed 19th century centre. And to top it all off, museums that other metropolises can only envy. For where else will you find such unusual museums as the Hangover Museum, the Mushroom Museum or the now legendary Museum of Broken Relationships? All this would be enough to visit Zagreb, but it doesn’t end there! Croatia’s capital is also home to a great food scene and restaurants, locally loved cafes and fascinating nightlife. Zagreb is definitely a place worth visiting all year round, not just in summer!


Our tour will start at Ban Jelacic Square, from where we will start climbing the two historic hills of Kaptol and Grič. They were once occupied by rival cities, one secular, the other ruled by the clergy of the local cathedral. At the Bloody Bridge, we’ll talk about the conflict between the two and their eventual merger into one Croatian capital. We’ll see the most popular (especially at night!) street, the local market – one of the most photogenic places in the city, and the most important temples, including Zagreb’s icon, the charming 14th century St. Mark’s Church with its colourful roof. A decent dose of historical knowledge awaits you as well, starting from the time when the Slavs arrived in the area, through the period when these lands were ruled by Emperor Franz Joseph until the moment Croatia became part of federated Yugoslavia. Ready for a walk? Great, Zagreb is a city just made to be discovered on foot!


During the tour we will see and discover:



  • Ban Jelacic Square

  • The most important religious site of the city, the Stone Gate

  • St. Mark’s Church

  • Lotrscak Tower, from which a cannon is fired every day at noon

  • The most useless (and shortest!) cable car in the world

  • Bloody Bridge street

  • Tkalciceva Street

  • Dolac Square food market

  • The Cathedral of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

  • And much, much more
