Underground Zagreb & Medvedgrad castle tour

Visit the beautiful hill of Medvednica and explore the underground bunkers, abandoned hospital and a medieval castle from the 13th century.

This experience takes you out of the city core and shows you a different side of Zagreb.

Driving through the beautiful “Nature park Medvednica” you will experience the nature and beauty of this place.

First stop is an underground military bunker hidden from plain sight used as a weapon and munition storage during the time of Yugoslavia.

The tour continues up to the abandoned hospital in the middle of the forest that proves how love can be strong. Dr. Milivoj Dežman was responcible for the construction of this hospital and his motive was the unconditional love for a beautiful actress called Ljerka Šram who suffered from tuberculosis

The final stop is the Medvedgrad castle - a medieval fortified town located on the south slopes of Medvednica. This 750 year old castle will give you an insight of how the fortifications looked back in the 13th century and while listening to the legend of the Black Queen, you will be able to enjoy the most amazing view from the top of the tower.

I was very looking forward to coming to Zagreb, especially because my mother travelled with me. My people found out everything about it, so that we could see the main stuff in the city!

Jesse Eisenberg (actor) spent the autumn in Zagreb in 2007: Zagreb is an incredible town. I enjoyed sightseeing the old parts of the town, and at night I went to clubs. I was thrilled that it was near Austria and Italy, so I visited Venice, Milan, Ljubljana, Graz, Split... over the weekends.
