This market is a major in Croatian, is beautiful, surrounded by old buildings or the lack of it as dirty and messy

Chose to go here instead of to the slightly pricier Zagreb 360 viewing tower. A winding staircase leads you to the top, with appropriate viewing spots on the way. Do not miss the 12pm cannon shot!

Do pop into this tower for a fantastic view of Zagreb. This can be as a replacement for Zagreb eye. Time the visit so that you can hear the canon fire at 12 noon!

This 13th century tower just radiates with history. On the top of the tower there is viewing point from which you can see Zagreb. Try to come to Lotrscak tower at noon so you can see and hear Lotrscak cannon firing. Very nice experience.
