Reveal hidden secrets, written in old buildings, balconies, trees. Listen to the wind... It will tell you everything... How Zagreb got its’ name? One legend says that the name of the city originated like this: an old city ruler, tired and thirsty, ordered the young girl Manda to bring water from the source.

TOUR INFO

Discover stories of the Upper town, formerly called Gradec, who has kept its original appearance and atmosphere of some old times. Located on the slope of the Medvednica Mountain, it was fortified with walls and towers and presented the strongest power in these times.

We’ll take you to a pleasant walk around the upper town of Zagreb. Don’t be surprised if the silence will suddenly be interrupted at exactly at noon. Don’t be afraid, the city is not under siege, it is just the "Grič cannon" marking its usual noon activity. According to the old legend, the king Bela IV, who proclaimed Zagreb as a free royal city in 1094, left one cannon to the city of Zagreb and ordered that cannon to be in use every day so it wouldn’t get rusty.

You will experience the most beautiful market on the open air, located in the heart of the city. Dolac is the biggest and most famous market in Zagreb, with a distinctive touch of history and tradition. You will find here many traditional and organic groceries, as well as meet the friendly market sellers called "kumica".

Take a ride with a funicular which connects Upper and Lower town, long only 66 meters, makes the shortest public-transport funiculars in the world.

You will also see the most vibrant street in Zagreb - Tkalčićeva street, among its citizens popularly called Tkalča, developed between the two oldest parts of Zagreb, historical Kaptol and Gradec. Tkalčićeva street has been in the past a home of craftsmen and merchants, and today it is a picturesque promenade where are situated most famous art galleries, charming coffee shops and street-festivals.

This is just a start of your journey... So many interesting stories are waiting to be told.

Too often overlooked by tourists making a beeline for the coast, Zagreb is a fascinating destination on its own, combining the best of Eastern and Western Europe. As the political, economic and cultural capital of Croatia, the city throbs with energy but has retained a good deal of old-world graciousness.
