Tour description

Coming this fall! 

Hello everyone, my name is Dubravka, licensed tour guide in Zagreb and County area, and after a really successful spring/summer season of Storytelling tour in the Zagreb Upper Town, I am restless to show you the hidden gems inside its Down Town.

From Brick to Palace is a tailored tour that showcases examples of late 19th/beginning of 20th century architecture of the Down Town, following the famous row of city parks called Lenucci’s Horseshoe. And with every great building, comes a great story. 

So, if you love architecture, or arts in general, or the era of celebrated masters of their crafts, or the intriguing and amazingly complicated history, or just a good story, follow me down this path: 

  • Zrinjevac Park
  • Medaković Palace
  • Croatian Academy of Science and Arts
  • Hotel “Palace”
  • Art Pavilion
  • King Tomislav Square
  • State Archives
  • Croatian National Theatre
  • Masarykova Street


….and many more. 

See you soon!

Price: tip based. Cash (any currency is fine).

    I will wait for you by the Meteorological Post, at the Zrinjevac Park. Look for the pink umbrella.

How much does this tour cost?

Free tours do not have a set price, instead, each person gives the guru at the end of the tour the amount that he or she considers appropriate (these usually range from €10 to $50 depending on satisfaction with the tour).

Sin su ayuda, no habríamos sido capaces de explorar y descubrir todas las maravillas de este lugar. Realmente ha hecho que nuestra visita sea más significativa e interesante. Muchas gracias, Dubravka ❤️

I was the only guest but that didn't prevent Dubravka from giving me the most wonderful tour I could imagine. As a guide she is a very knowledgeable and fun person who will make your time in Zagreb a learning journey. I particularly appreciated that she didn't give a one-size fits all tour but really adapted to individual needs and questions. I would definitely book a tour with her anytime again. Highly recommend :). Cheers from Germany.

Great tour of downtown Zagreb filled with fun facts and stories from the late 19th and early 20th century, the time when Zagreb experienced an unprecedented urban growth. It was nice to hear about the wealthy families who had their palaces built in what is known as Lenuci's horseshoe, an elegant stretch of parks lined with impressive buildings, all of which have remarkable stories behind them.
