Our AdvenTour starts on the most important meeting point for people of Zagreb, Jelačić Square, where you will be able to admire the lively atmosphere of the Best Winter destination in Europe. Our licensed guide will introduce you to our capital’s rich history which dates to medieval times. We continue to Kaptol, one of two medieval settlements that have been rivals for centuries and that have united in the city of Zagreb in 1850. and to our open farmer’s market Dolac, popularly called “the Big belly of Zagreb” where the guide will introduce you to our local food.
We will make our first stop in the vibrant Tkalčičeva street and warm ourselves with Croatian homemade brandy. Choose between medica, višnjevača, borovnička, or stronger brandys such as travarica, loza etc. As we make our way to the Upper Town, known as Gradec, you will be introduced to the origin of a necktie, Croatian gift to the world of fashion, and pass through beautifully preserved Stone Gate and its charming chapel that attracts pilgrims on a daily basis. We will soon find ourselves in the centre of Croatian politics, Saint Mark’s Square, dominated by Saint Mark’s Church and its picturesque roof which appears on almost every postcard sent from Zagreb.
On our walk through Gradec (which, in fact, means “small town”), you will find out more about the 13th century Lotrščak Tower and one of the shortest funiculars in the world, whose ride lasts only one minute! We will take a walk along Strossmayer’s promenade, first public promenade in the capital, and enter Grič Tunnel, one of Zagreb’s most famous tourist attractions built during World War II.
Once again, we are in the DownTown area and exploring Lenucci’s Horshoe, U-shaped system of 8 parks and squares projected in the late 19.ct. We will make our final stop on Tomislavac, dominated by unforgettable outdoor ice rink and have degustation of Croatian homemade sausages, “fritule” and mulled wine.
Join us in AdvenTour, and see why we deserve the title of Europe’s Best Winter Destination for the second year in a row.
