  • Approximate duration: 03:00 HRS
Zagreb in the green

The panoramic and walking tour combines the flexibility and comfort of a car or a bus with the experience of a walking tour. The panoramic tour shows you all the remote places near the city center as well as the Lower and the Upper town with all the historic sights and the city’s vibe.

If you have your own vehicle or if you need us to arrange a vehicle for you (we can provide a car, minivan or a bus), we can combine walking and panoramic tour. The panoramic tour with a vehicle will show you the highlights of Zagreb’s Lower Town. We will be driving by the Mimara museum, which hosts more than 3500 artworks collected by Ante and Wiltrud Topić Mimara; Museum of Arts and Crafts, 19th-century neo-baroque building of Croatian National Theatre, and the headquarter of the biggest University in Croatia – University of Zagreb. Continuing our drive through Zagreb’s Green Horseshoe, a sequence of 8 connected parks and squares, you will get a chance to see Zagreb’s main train station where famous Orient Express train used to stop at and Hotel Esplanade, the hotel built for its passengers. Just opposite of the train station is the King Tomislav square, with the statue of King Tomislav, both named after the first Croatian king, and behind it the breathtaking Art Pavilion.

After the panoramic tour that approximately lasts 30 minutes, we will continue our tour on foot. During our walking tour, which starts from Zagreb’s Cathedral, we will visit Kaptol and Gradec, two historic settlements from which Zagreb developed. On Kaptol, you will not only learn about the biggest Cathedral in Croatia and Croatian Catholic Church, but you will also get a chance to discover our picturesque farmers’ market Dolac. After crossing the border between the two hills, today the loveliest walking street in Zagreb, we will climb up to Gradec and enter the old city core through the only preserved medieval gate, the Stone Gate.

In Gradec, you will get a chance to see the center of Croatia’s political power, Parliament and Government buildings, as well as St. Mark’s Church with its famous colored roof, the baroque church of St. Catharine’s and 13th-century Lotrščak tower. In order to get to the final point of the tour, there is an option to use Zagreb’s Funicular, originally built in 1890, and known as the shortest funicular in Europe. Final point of the tour is Zagreb’s main square – Ban Jelačić Square.
