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
  • Dolac open Market 
  • Opatovina

It was everything you can hope from a walking tour, with interesting history facts, funny anecdotes and recommandations. The tour guide Mirjana was also very funny and interesting to listen to. We also appreciated that it was not too entertainment heavy, and the purpose was really to know the city better. Thank you Mirjana and kind regards!
