Zagreb Walking Tour

A short drive away from Zadar, in the middle of a sandy lagoon, the glorious town of Nin (Aenona) has been proudly standing for almost 3000 years as one of the oldest towns in the Mediterranean. Its exceptionally rich and troubled history dates back to the 9th century BC, when the Ilyrian tribe named Liburnians settled the area. As a result, today the town abounds in valuable cultural treasures that will captivate your mind.

DESCRIPTION

Apart from being the capital and the largest city in Croatia, with more than one million inhabitants, Zagreb is a city with a long and eventful history. Over the years, people from all over Europe and Croatia have settled in Zagreb, supplying a diversity of influences.

Zagreb has more museums per capita than any other place in the world, earning it the nickname of “the city of museums”. It showcases not only Croatian, but European and Mediterranean heritage as well.  Moreover, Zagreb has lately become one of the most famous city break spots, where rich history and culture combined with picturesque promenades, lush parks and dynamic squares attract an ever greater number of travellers. The combination of open-hearted people, a positive, welcoming vibe, and the city’s intense cultural scene are hard to resist.

Enjoy walking through picturesque and dynamic streets that reflect the city’s both hectic and slow-paced lifestyle. You will start with a ride in a funicular, Zagreb´s oldest and one of the shortest public transportation routes in the world. It will take you to the Upper Town, locally known as Grič or Gradec, one of the two historic settlements of Zagreb. Accompanied by the stories told by our guide, you will enjoy the charm of the Strossmayer promenade, explore the historic urban nucleus, and witness the many curiosities of the city. Having descended through the only preserved medieval gate of Gradec and crossing the lively Tkalčićeva Street, you will mingle with the locals on the Dolac market and stop for a visit to the Cathedral and Kaptol, another historic settlement, now the seat of the Roman Catholic archbishop of Zagreb
