Overview

It can be difficult to appreciate Zagreb’s historical and cultural significance on a self-led tour. Discover the city’s highlights and hear their stories on an intimate walking tour led by a local, benefiting from the small-group size for a more personalized experience. Explore landmarks including the Cathedral, St Mark’s Church, and Lotrscak Tower, and enjoy an included ride on the historic city funicular.

What to Expect
Meet your licensed local guide in park Zrinjevac, the most beautiful park of the famous Green horseshoe of Zagreb. Get introduced with the rich history of the capital of Croatia that dates back to medieval times. 

The tour will continue to the focal point of the city, the Main square – ban Jelacic, towards the Cathedral. The Cathedral is one of the greatest landmarks of Zagreb. Your guide will explain the origins of the Cathedral of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, all the difficulties it has sustained and today’s renovation.

The route taken will lead you to the vibrant Tkalciceva street or better known as ''the bar street' which always has a stream of people. A short stroll brings you to the charming funicular. The funicular is the oldest public transportation in the city that has been bringing joy to citizens of Zagreb for more than 125 years. Take a ride and feel welcomed to the Upper town – Gradec!

Gradec is one of the two medieval settlements Zagreb originates from. Enjoy the charm and harmony of the Strossmayer promenade, the best spot for panoramic views of Zagreb rooftops and landscape. You will not miss the new official ''kissing spot of Zagreb'', Lotrscak tower that houses the Gric cannon which is responsible for the oldest ongoing tradition of Zagreb and Saint Mark’s Church. This particular church with its picturesque rooftop is the most frequent postcard sent from Zagreb, when you see it you will realize why.

The the tour will descend towards the oldest pharmacy in Zagreb that dates from the 14th century. As in the old days, you will walk through the Stone Gate to leave the Upper town. The gate was a part of defense system of Gradec and it is the only city gate that survived until present day. Inside there is a small chapel housing the miraculous picture depicting Our Lady, patron saint of the city. With the Upper town conquered, you will hear more of witch craft and other hidden gems of the capital. The tour will finish at the Main square, where you will learn how Zagreb got its name and where there is something always happening.

Response from Stephanie J | Reviewed this property |
You are walking for two hours. There are some steps and some inclines, but I think you may want to consider if you can walk for this amount of time. There are not resting stops/spots to sit.
