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.


On our route we will visit:

  • Ban Jelačić Square (The Main Square) - tour start
  • The Cathedral
  • Dolac open Market 
  • Opatovina
  • Tkalčićeva Street

Mirjana is a wonderful guide - she is deeply knowledgeable and also has a good sense of humour, which made for a really great tour where we didn't feel time pass by at all. My only minor feedback would be to maybe include a bit more contemporary history from the Yugoslav period and the war of independence, but also understand that's still a sensitive topic for some. Overall a great tour guide worthy of the beautiful city that is Zagreb.

Mirjana was a very friendly and professional guide. We got lots of stories and history and although we had already walked to all the spots the day before, she added lots of interesting learning for us. We totally recommend her tour- and maybe on day 1 of your holiday. She gave us a list of great places to eat but we can only manage one today..,
