Mirogoj cemetery and sightseeing tour

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

After the panoramic tour, our first stop is Mirogoj cemetery. Known as one of the most beautiful cemeteries in Europe. Mirogoj cemetery was built in late 19th, early 20th century by Hermann Bolle, architect also known for building Zagreb’s Cathedral. Mirogoj is known as an open air museum where one can see beautiful statues and breathtaking old arcades. Some of the most important people in Croatian history rest in peace at Mirogoj cemetery, and it’s a cemetery where people of all religions and various nations are buried. Walk through the old arcades takes around 30 minutes, before we continue towards our second stop.

Second stop, after the visit to Mirogoj is either Zagreb’s Cathedral or the Upper Town, where we continue our walking tour and the visit of two historic settlements – Kaptol and Gradec – from which Zagreb, as a capital city, developed. On Kaptol you will not only learn about the biggest Cathedral in Croatia and Croatia’s Catholic Church but you will also get a chance to discover our picturesque farmer’s market Dolac. After crossing the border between the two hills, today the loveliest walking street in Zagreb, we will climb up to Gradec, better known as Zagreb’s Upper Town, and enter it through medieval Stone Gate. Inside of Gradec you will get a chance to see the seat of our countries administration, Parliament and Government buildings, as well as St. Mark's Church with the famous colored roof, baroque church of St. Catharine's and 16th century Lotrščak tower. In order to get to the final point of the tour, there’s 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.

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.

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.
