Zagreb City Tour │ Private │ Guided │ Half Day │ From $40
Zagreb, the cosmopolitan Croatan capital is a city not easily described in just a few words. Ornate Astro-Hungarian architecture and an open friendliness point west — while rows of socialist-era buildings and a strong leisurely coffee culture (emphasis on culture) point East. However, Zagreb is much more than the sum of these recent influences. Long before it was part of an empire or union, Zagreb was a city of rich traditions, carried on for centuries by native Croatians. With Jauntee expert local guide, you’ll see all three ‘faces’ of Zagreb, learning from each building, historical character (many of which come ‘alive’!) and custom to see how the city’s unique culture developed.
The sightseeing tour will bring you to St. Mark’s church in the Upper Town and the Lotršćak Tower to admire the most beautiful views of the city. Stop at the popular Museum of the Broken Relationships filled with items left behind in the wake of dissolved couples, is as fascinating as it is amusing. Visit Dolac, the most popular open air market in the city for a taste of local specialties and a chat with friendly locals mostly from the countryside in the vicinity of Zagreb.
The narrow stone streets of Zagreb offer plenty of opportunities to find unexpected treasures. With your guide, you’ll hear the history of the necktie, which originated in Croatia, listen to the story behind the traditional Zagreb heart, and see examples of the impressive ‘naive’ art (vivid paintings on glass) that originated with Croatian farmers. Our guides will take you through a naive art shop to admire the work and perhaps even find a new piece for your home! Aside from these uniquely Croatian traditions, you’ll find plenty of beauty throughout Zagreb simply in the calm streets, the colorful buildings and the warm hospitality of the people.
It’s impossible to fully experience Zagreb without indulging in a leisurely morning (sometimes into the afternoon) with friends over coffee. On your private expert local guide recommendation, you will enjoy excellent cup of coffee or cappuccino or might find a new favorite hot drink with ‘white’ coffee — a delightful beverage akin to a latte, yet infinitely better presented. On a winding stone street where a river once flowed, you’ll find nearly two dozen cafes with outdoor seating. We recommend making a stop to simply sit and take in the atmosphere.
Next, transfer to Samobor in the company of your driver guide. Often called a little Venice, Samobor is a charming small town situated at the foot of the mountain Samobor in the close vicinity of the Croatian capital Zagreb. Stroll through the beautiful parks alongside Gradna River, climb up to the vintage point called Steel tower and breathe in the mountain-fresh air. Admire the stunning views of Zagreb and Samobor old town fort built in the XII century. Visit the town’s main square and view its beautiful buildings. Stop at the well-known family owned cafe for a mouth-watering kremšnita, a must-try town dessert. Afternoon return to Zagreb.
