Full description
The tour starts every day at 10:00 AM at the Ban Josip Jelacic Square, from where you go on a stroll exploring Zagreb traditions and customs, known only to a true local. As well as history and culture, the tour introduces the everyday life of the locals — in the past and today. A tram ride through the center takes you to the National Theater of Croatia, one of the monumental sights.

A tram ride through the center takes you to the National Theatre of Croatia, one of the monumental sights. Continue to the place where Saturday mornings are reserved for the ones that like to see and be seen. If it is Saturday, watch out for paparazzi. After a cake specialty at the best confectionery in the city, take a ride with the famously short Zagreb funicular.

A stroll through the Old Town is ideal to enjoy some views and stumble upon many sights, including the iconic St. Mark's Church. In the Stone Gate, learn about the miracle of Zagreb and the many customs connected to it. Crossing the Bloody Bridge, you enters the Bar Street where both locals and tourists relax with a cup of coffee while the city moves in front of them. Soon, the Dolac green market awaits with its sounds and colors. 

To learn more of the local religious traditions you are taken to the largest church in Croatia — the Zagreb Cathedral. The tour finishes on the Ban Jelačić Square near the Manduševac Fountain with the legend every local knows best: how Zagreb got its name. In the end, there is a local souvenir for every guest. Or have you become Zagreb locals already?
