A geological tour of Zagreb

Streets, squares and buildings in Zagreb can be seen in a slightly different way.

Streets, squares and buildings in Zagreb can be seen in a slightly different way – by observing and recognizing types of rock that were used for constructions. Therefore, geological beauties can be found even within the city of Zagreb. For example, while passing through the main square you are walking on former magma, in front of the department store NAMA you walk on deposits on which dinosaurs were walking in time of formation, while on many buildings you can find various fossil remains, often even those that lived in the sea situated where Zagreb is set nowadays.

Possible tour through the centre of Zagreb lasts ca. 2 hours.

I am looking forward to Zagreb as a destination where I always feel good. It seems it has been too long since the last time I was here, although it was just a year or so.
