Zagreb: Private Historic Walking Tour with a Local Guide

1. Zagreb: Private Historic Walking Tour with a Local Guide

Meet your guide in the oldest and most beautiful park in Zagreb, park Zrinjevac. From Zrinjevac you will walk to Ban Jelačić Square, and the guide will tell you the story of the origin of Zagreb and how Zagreb got its name. You will walk along Ilica to Funicular, which will take you to Gradec, one of the medieval settlements. Stroll through the streets of the upper city, immerse yourself in the rich history and listen to interesting stories about the city. You will see the oldest pharmacy in Zagreb and hear something about the method of treatment in the Middle Ages and the preparation of medicines. You will exit the Upper Town through the only preserved gate - the Stone Gate. You will find out why there is a chapel inside the door, and about the patron saint of the city of Zagreb. Also, why and from whom the inhabitants of Gradec needed protection in medieval times. You will descend Radićeva Street and enter Tkalčićeva Street via a small street called Bloody Bridge. The guide will tell you why this little street has such a symbolic name. You will walk through the most famous and busiest pedestrian street in the city and learn something about the way of life of the people of Zagreb. You will walk through Opatovina Park to the green market Dolac (open during the morning), where you will be a part of the hustle and bustle of the most famous symbol of Zagreb. From the green market you will walk to the Cathedral, the most famous symbol of Zagreb and the guide will tell you the most interesting facts from its turbulent history. The tour ends at Ban Jelačić Square where you will say goodbye to your guide.

Zagreb: 2.5-Hour Cycle Back to Socialism Tour

2. Zagreb: 2.5-Hour Cycle Back to Socialism Tour

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.

What people are saying about Zagreb

Our tour with Dorotea was great! It was just my husband and I, so it felt like a private tour :) we were already in the city for a few days and the tour was our last day in Zagreb, so it was interesting to hear the history behind places we walked by a few times already. Of course we also saw places we didn't know we missed. We appreciated Dorotea's enthusiasm and are looking forward to using Dorotea's tips to make our next trip to Zagreb even better!

The tour was so much fun! A perfect introduction to Zagreb’s history, we navigated different areas old Zagreb and New! Bruno was so accommodating where he took us on a detour through parks and gorgeous green places in the city! I would take the tour again and highly recommend it for both first time visitors and returning tourists!

What a wonderful tour! Alida was a very knowledgable guide who has shown us Zagreb in a different light. If you are interested in learning more about modern day Zagreb, as well as more recent history - then this is the right tour for you. The bikes are new and great too and it was a very enjoyable afternoon! Highly recommended.

It was a great tour of Zagreb and the history of the city was explained very authentically by the very friendly guide without time pressure and with a lot of passion for this unique city. Highly recommended.

A good overview of the history of Zagreb and its historical buildings. Our guide Dorotea is very knowledgeable and personable. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour.
