Donji Grad (Lower Town) Tours

79 reviews
Donji Grad (Lower Town)
Croatia’s capital city, Zagreb, is divided into two parts, Donji Grad (Lower Town) and Gornji Grad (Upper Town). The modern center of Zagreb, Donji Grad is home to several museums, gardens, and historic buildings. Among the highlights is Lenuci’s Horseshoe, a series of seven interconnected parks that encircle the district’s top sights. 

The Basics
The best way to explore Donji Grad is on foot. Take a guided walking tour to see the district’s highlights and learn about Zagreb’s rich history from a local guide. Zagreb is also bike friendly, so book a guided bike tour to see more of the city than you could in a day on foot. Most sightseeing tours of Zagreb include a visit to both Donji Grad and Gornji Grad.   

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Wear comfortable shoes and be prepared for lots of walking.
  • Enjoy free Wi-Fi at Ban Jelačić Square and cafés across Donji Grad.
  • The Zagreb tram is the easiest and most convenient way to get around the city.
  • Don’t miss the Dolac Market, Zagreb’s most popular farmers market, open daily. 
  • Donji Grad is known for its vibrant coffee culture, so make time to enjoy a cup on one of the many café terraces. 

How to Get There
Located in the center of Zagreb, Donji Grad can be reached on foot or by car, bus, bike, or tram, or by funicular from Gornji Grad. Trams are by far the easiest and most efficient way to travel around Zagreb. Most tram lines lead to the city center, making it easy to arrive in Donji Grad from nearly anywhere in Zagreb. 

When to Get There
If you’re looking for warmer temperatures, April through September are the best months to visit. Rain is common in early spring, and Zagreb gets its fair share of snow and sub-zero temps during the winter months. Several music, theater, and film festivals rock downtown Zagreb during the summer months, making it a particularly lively time to visit. Winter is also a festive time, with numerous holiday festivities and Advent-themed tours. 

Walking Lenuci’s Horseshoe 
Brainchild of 19th-century urban planner Milan Lenuci, Lenuci’s Horseshoe is a U-shaped network of seven landscaped park squares in central Donji Grad. Walking Lenuci’s Horseshoe is one of the best ways to explore lower Zagreb. Along the route you’ll pass lovely landscaped parks, several museums and monuments, and important landmarks such as the Croatian National Theater and the Academy of Dramatic Art.
