11 Reviews
Tours Culture & history Guided tours Reseller exclusions Rentals

A 2.5-hour bike tour to discover the unusual sights and socialist/communist history of Zagreb. Crossing the river Sava, you will enter a different scenery, discovering a very complex Zagreb that is not visited by most tourists.


  • Discovera completely different side of Zagreb, where the real people live!
  • Cycle over the river, through the park and into the vivid street-art region
  • Learn the fascinating history of Zagreb from a local guide
  • Find out how and why the social system and society change


After meeting for the beginning of your tour in the city center, you will begin your lovely adventure. From here, cycle through the lower town, partially strolling the Green Horseshoe area, as the neighboring landscape transforms to a completely different surrounding. You will witness a very sudden change in the blink of eye. Crossing the river will cause you to enter the Balkan zone, safely cycling on long ago established cycling lanes. Here you'll get to see the development of the city since the post-World War II era, mainly through that 'mystical' time of communism, seeing how it breathes today as it remains the main housing area of Zagreb. New Zagreb is currently also a cradle of a very vivacious Croatian contemporary art scene. You will cycle through the 'sleeping over' area of the city, check the Contemporary Art Museum and shady and often very peaceful Bundek park with lakes. While cycling back over the bridge you'll have one of the loveliest sights on the city, and realize why Zagreb is such a city to love, complete with the mountains in the background.
