What You Can Expect
The tour commences when you meet the friendly local guide at Jelačić Square (Trg Josipa Jelačića), the main public space in the city, and then start the stroll through the capital’s dynamic streets, as your guide introduces you to the history of the city and tells you about the cultural importance of Zagreb, explaining the city's importance before, during and after it was a part of Yugoslavia.
Stop by the colorful Zagreb Cathedral, or as it’s officially called, the Cathedral of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Perambulate down 19th-century streets and stop for a photo-op at Lotrščak Tower, a site that boasts cannons that are fired every day. Hear about the artistic treasures inside the Galerija Klovićevi Dvori, the city’s main art museum, as you pass by it.
Then turn down the city’s leafy greenway, Strossmayer Promenade, the verdant greenway that connects the upper and lower town. Toward the end, gaze at the Stone Gate. Ever since a fire in 1731 destroyed all of the gate except for the painting of the Virgin Mary, locals have attributed miraculous things to the painting. Keep an eye out! You might witness a miracle!
Now walk up to the city's upper town and head over to Kravi Most, a street that's unofficially known as the 'bloody bridge.' Most definitely a street and not a bridge, Kravi Most's nickname attests to the medieval battles that once took place on it between the warring neighborhoods of Gradec and Kaptol.
After 90 minutes of discovering exciting Zagreb, head back to where it all began to conclude this entertaining and educational tour of the Croatian capital.
Learned a lot about Zagreb and culture while visiting central Zagreb. Guide was very knowledgeable and kind. She answered all questions and more. She also explained other parts of the city and country. She also let us know of other must do's. Definitely worth it!
Our guide Marija was lovely. She adapted our tour to ensure that we saw some sites that were on our list. She was extremely knowledgable and kept my children interested the whole time.
This tour was amazing!
Great tour guide - full of information and a joy to be with.
The tour was most informative on the history of the old town area. The tour guide was wonderful and extremely knowledgable.
Because it was the end of season I was the only participant so I had a very nice informative Guide show me the city and give me tips!
This tour was just ok. There isn't much to see in zagreb and you can see all the places if you walk around the city centre on your own. Our guide seemed a bit put off with croatia in general but otherwise was friendly and helpful.
