Discover Historic Upper Town of Zagreb - Free Tour
Hello! I am Mirjana, a licensed tour guide for Zagreb and Zagreb County. I was born and raised in this beautiful city and it gives me great joy when I get the opportunity to share history, stories and legends of Zagreb with travellers from around the world. Let's take a trip into history...while enjoying the present, learn about local traditions and create unique experiences and memories...
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.
