Tour description

If you're looking to learn about Zagreb's history and development, I'd be happy to take you on a tour of Kaptol and Gradec. These two medieval towns were the birthplace of today's Zagreb, and I'll share stories about how people used to live and what life is like now. You'll also discover hidden gems and must-see places that will make your tour exciting. 

As we explore the city's landmarks, you'll gain a deeper understanding of its history and culture. The tour will showcase the town's most famous attractions, fascinating historical facts, intriguing legends, and curiosities, and I'll also suggest things to do and places to go. There's so much to see and discover in Zagreb, and I'm here to make sure your experience is unforgettable.

  • Ban Jelačić Square (The Main Square) - tour start
  • The Cathedral

Best walking tour ever. Small groups, local stories, historical lessons. This is much better than the commercial ones offered by travel agencies. It’s very personal and very interesting. Highly recommend

Mirjana is a delightful guide, very personable😊. The tragedies visited upon Zagreb are many and Mirjana educated us in a concise and informative manner. We were only a small group which is always lucky for the participants so we had time for chatting. Even though the weather deteriorated quickly over the morning we managed to shelter from the wind and see all the sites promised. Thank you Mirjana, you made our time in Zagreb most enjoyable.

Mirjana explained all the history behind the important places we visited. Without this tour we would have been clueless about where to go what to see in Zagreb.
