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.

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.

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!

I remember Zagreb as a beautiful city, and the people I met were very nice and offered me a warm welcome. The audience was wonderful as well. Really, that concert has been like a lovely souvenir.

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.
