DescriptionGet an introduction to the rich history of the Croatian capital, dating back to medieval times, on a 2.5-hour guided walk. Your local guide will take you from the main square, Ban Jelacic, to the cathedral, which is one of the most important landmarks in the city. Hear about the origins of the Cathedral of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the difficulties it has sustained, and its renovation. Your route takes you to vibrant Tkalciceva Street, better known as the bar street, where there’s always a steady stream of people. Hear about the philosophy of lounging and other everyday habits of the locals. A short stroll away is the charming funicular. This is the oldest form of public transportation in the city and has brought joy to the citizens of Zagreb for over 125 years. Hop on and take a ride to Gradec, the upper town. Gradec is one of the 2 medieval settlements that formed Zagreb. Take a walk along the charming Strossmayer promenade, the best spot for panoramic views of Zagreb rooftops. See the Lotrscak Tower and Saint Mark’s Church. The church with its picturesque rooftop appear on the postcard that is most frequently sent from Zagreb. Explore the side streets, discover their charm, and perhaps even enter one of the old courtyards. Descend to the oldest pharmacy in Zagreb, dating from the 14th century. Walk through the stone gate as you leave the upper town. The gate was a part of the defense system for the old city and is the only gate that has survived. Inside there is a small chapel housing the miraculous picture depicting Our Lady, the patron saint of Zagreb. After your visit to the old town, your guide will tell you about witchcraft and the Brotherhood of the Croatian Dragon, and show you some hidden gems of the city. Your tour ends back at the main square, where you’ll learn how Zagreb got its name before saying goodbye to your guide.
