What you'll do

Explore the downtown of Zagreb with a true local! Feel the vibes of the colorful Zrinjevac Park, home to many outdoor events during the summer. Discover the magnificent city palaces, in secessionist style, which are now various institutions like the Archaeological Museum, or the Art Pavillion which was originally built in Budapest & brought to Zagreb! Take a walk through the beautiful Botanical Garden & find out what “Gesamtkunstwerk” looks like in front of the amazing building of the State Archive. Learn about Croatian history - our first king & the literally “lit” opening ceremony of the Croatian National Theatre, as well as our culture & the Oscar- winning “Zagreb School of Animated Film”. Discover the secret of the Kallina House & it’s detailed facade, but most importantly meet Pluto, the statue of a beloved stray dog. Finally, witness some slavic engineering - the fastest built “skyrise” in Zagreb, built in only 79 days. We’ll meet “by the clock on the square”(Jelačić Square) & walk througout the “U-shaped” series of squares & parks, called the Lenuzzi, or Green, Horseshoe projected in the late 19th century, as part of the new urban plan of the downtown of the city. It has since become the core of city life, because of its many green areas & amazing buildings, museums, galleries restaurants, hotels, shops & bars!

Nina

I am a licensed tour guide with a degree in journalism (so my storytelling skills are on point) and 3 years of experience as a local guide, but more importantly, a true Zagreb citizen. I grew up in the center of the city, so I played and lerned how to ride a bycicle in some of the places I visit in my walking tours now. Last year I started my own business and have been working with local and international tourist agencies since. You can trust me with all the dos and donts, must haves and must sees while here, but at one risk... I might contaminate you with love for this city and its magical vibes!

Where you'll be

Jelačić Square - Zrinjevac Square - Strossmayer Square - Tomislav Square (Main Railway Station) - Botanical Garden - Marulić Square - Mažuranić Square - Republic Square - Floral Square - The Main Square
