What to Expect
Upper and Downtown Zagreb Private Walking Tour is the best way to experience Zagreb, relive its history and feel the pulse of a modern city. Our licensed guides will take you on a stroll through the oldest streets of Zagreb visiting all the main sights while combining historical facts with the everyday life of a big city.

The tour takes guests to both Gradec and Kaptol, two medieval settlements Zagreb was founded of. Standing on two opposing hills still today they tell the history of cooperation and conflicts that created Zagreb as we know it today. While walking the cobbled streets visitors will get to see the 13th century Stone Gate, the St. Mark's church with its famous colorful rooftop, the Lotrščak Tower still marking noon with a cannon shot, the Bloody Bridge which has witnessed many battles through ages, the monumental Zagreb Cathedral and much more.

After a walk around the older part of the city, you will visit downtown Zagreb with its famous Green Horseshoe line of parks and squares is a walk you shouldn't miss. Packed with museums, art galleries, monuments and historical institutions it shows Zagreb's development from the middle of the 19th century until today. Starting at the Ban Jelacic Square the tour will takes our guests through most frequent parks while pointing out the importance of the Croatian Arts and Science Academy, admiring the beauty of the Art Pavillion, experiencing the busy life of the Main Train Station and finishing off with the most important cultural institution in Croatia – the Croatian National Theatre.

At the end of the tour, our guests will feel like they know Zagreb by heart, ready to explore everything the city has to offer.

The standard route can be modified considering guests' requests and interests, pick up and drop off spots etc.
