Discovering Zagreb – walking & panoramic tour

Location: Zagreb, Croatia
  • The tour starts at your hotel (or other mutually agreed location). During the panoramic tour you will discover the Lower Town of our capital and see examples of our finest architecture: Mimara Museum, which contains more than 3,500 pieces of art from the ancient world till nowdays; 19th century neo-Baroque Croatian National Theatre;  Museum of Arts and Crafts and the University of Zagreb, the largest educational institution in Croatia.

    We will pass through Zagreb’s Green Horseshoe, a beautiful U-shaped system of 8 parks and squares designed in the late 19 ct. You will see Zagreb’s main train station and the elegant Hotel Esplanade built to accept the passangers of Orient Express. Just across the main train station you will see the majestic statue of King Tomislav, Croatia’s first monarch  and behind it a breath taking Art Pavilion…

    After the panoramic tour we will explore Zagreb on foot.

    We begin our walk tour on the main square named after Croatia’s 19th century viceroy and national hero, Josip Jelačić Bužimski. The square has been city’s commercial centre for centuries and today it’s considered to be the most important meeting point for people of Zagreb. Our licensed guide will introduce you to our capital’s rich history which dates back to medieval times. We continue to Kaptol and Gradec, two medieval settlements that have been rivals for centuries and that have united in the city of Zagreb in 1850. On Kaptol you will learn more about Croatia’s largest Cathedral, its history and recent renovation and then continue to our open farmer’s market Dolac, popularly called “the belly of Zagreb.”

    Our guide will lead you through Tkalčićeva and Radićeva streets where you will be introduced to the origin of the necktie, Croatian gift to the world of fashion. As we make our way to the Upper Town, known as Gradec, you will pass through the beautifully preserved Stone Gate – part of Zagreb’s fortification system- and its charming chapel that attracts pilgrims on a daily basis. We will soon find ourselves in the centre of Croatian politics, the main square of the Upper town, Saint Mark’s Square, dominated  by Saint Mark’s Church and its picturesque roof which appears on  almost every postcard sent from Zagreb.

    Continuing through Gradec, you will find out more about our cultural life and about the Museum of Naive Art, Museum of Broken Relationships… We will visit the plateau behind St Catharine’s Church where you will have a magnificent view over Zagreb’s Cathedral. You will discover the 13th century Lotrščak Tower and board on Zagreb’s Funicular, originally built in 1890 and known as the shortest funicular in the world. The final point of the tour is in fact the starting point- Ban Jelačić Square.
