Sure, the centre of Zagreb is rich with sights and filled with history, but other parts of Zagreb shouldn’t be ignored either. This big tour will give you a bigger picture of Zagreb, and because it’s private tour, you’ll get a more personalized experience.
he first part is the panoramic tour – your guide will pick you up at your hotel and then you’ll see the greenest part of the Lower City, the Green Horseshoe, which is a series of wonderful parks and public squares. You’ll see Zrinjevac and Tomislavac, two beautiful parks that are located between the busy Main Railway Station and even busier Ban Jelačić Square.
Another gorgeous sight at this part of the city is the park-cemetery Mirogoj, with arcades and red brick walls that are covered in leaves which are spectacular during autumn because they change colours on a daily basis.
You’ll also see the newer parts of the city north of the Sava River: Jarun Lake, or the Zagreb Sea as they call it, and Novi Zagreb (New Zagreb) –a residential area of blocks of flats and tower blocks built during the Socialist era.
After that, it’s back to the centre to do a little bit of walking: you’ll see the Upper City, Lotrščak Tower, St. Mark’s Church, take some great photos of the city panorama from the entrance to the funicular, pass through the Stone Gate, visit the lively Tkalčićeva Street and the tallest building in Zagreb, the Cathedral, and finish at the heart of the city, Ban Jelačić Square.
