Classic Walking Tour of Zagreb

Discover Zagreb!

Zagreb is a wonderful walking city! Modern Zagreb grew out of two medieval settlements, Kaptol, founded in 1094 and Gradec, proclaimed a free royal city in 1242. Today, the capital of Croatia is a lively Central European city busting with activity. The 20th century brought the Secession style to its public buildings, parks and fountains, emanating the lofty spirit of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. With a rich tradition of art, music and culture, strolling the Upper and Lower town to enjoy numerous galleries, colorful open-air markets, coffee houses, fine restaurants and parks is marvelous.
Our tour begins with the city's most memorable sights in the fortified, medieval Upper Town. We'll see the famous St. Mark's Church with its multi-colored tile roof, the baroque church of St. Catherine, St. Stephen's Cathedral, and the Parliament with the Government Palace. As we move to the Lower City, stretching around the main square with statue of Ban Jelačić, the first Ban (Count) of Croatia and the man who abolished serfdom in Croatia. We will see the 19th century National Theater, Museum of Arts & Crafts, the University and the beautiful Zrinjevac Park with its numerous elaborate Secession (Art Nouveau) buildings, leaving you with an abundance of paths to continue your exploration and a great desire to come back for more.
The Classic walking tour is a tour for all seasons. In the summer, with everyone away on vacation, although hot, the city feels empty, calm and uniquely yours. The autumn walks are colorful, with yellow and red leaves crackling under your steps as you explore. The winters are scented with aromas of cooked wine and baked chestnuts, brimming with street fairs and Christmas décor. But Zagreb springtime, that is something else. On the backdrop of blossoming nature and flowering trees, the whole city awakens and you can feel the commotion settle within you as excitement for seeing the streets come to life, making you fall in love with Zagreb forever.

Witches of Zagreb


History of Zagreb is filled with stories of the occult and witchcraft. The last Croatian witch was burned at the steak near Zagreb back in 1752 before Maria Theresa outlawed witch-burning and torture in the late 18th century.
If you still happen to get in some sort of supernatural trouble, the safest place to hide in Zagreb is the Kaptol Franciscan Monastery, located just above Tkalciceva street. Although the official church is very secretive about the subject, rumor has it that the monks living in the monastery are skilled exorcists. The church and its monastery date from the 13th century but the whole place was restored in neo-gothic fashion after the 1880s earthquake.
