The Croatian capital is noted for its great monumental heritage. Discover Zagreb's legacy on this guided tour through the historical centre of the city.
Zagreb City Tour
Our guided tour of Zagreb will begin in Ban Jelačić Square, in the heart of Croatia's capital. We'll find out what role this beautiful public space played at the end of the 20th century during the conflicts that led to the disintegration of former Yugoslavia.
The first stop of our tour will be at the 13th century Stone Gate, the entrance to Zagreb Old Town. Nearby, we'll find the city's oldest pharmacy, the Black Eagle.
Then it's on to Gornji Grad: an area which looks over the city. Here you'll see the shields that decorate the outside of St. Mark's Church, one of the most famous religious sites in the area. And just around the corner you'll find the Lotrščak tower, which we'll access to see (and hear!) the cannons up close!
Next we'll make our way to the Zagreb Funicular. We'll take a ride on the 100-year-old funicular down to the lower town, admiring the views along the way. Afterwards, we'll enter the tunnels built by the fascists during the Second World War, before travelling further back in time to the Bloody Bridge, where we'll learn more about the conflicts that have shaped Zagreb's turbulent history.
We'll then visit the Dolac Market: a colourful marketplace where we'll learn about some of the daily customs of the local population. Opposite the market is the Zagreb Cathedral, the tallest building in Croatia! One of its two towers has a fascinating feature that you'll discover on the day of the tour.
At the end of the tour we'll head back to Ban Jelačić Square.
