Panoramic and walking tour

The panoramic and walking tour combines the flexibility and comfort of a car or a bus with the experience of a walking tour. The panoramic tour shows you all the remote places near the city center and the Lower town while the walking tour shows Zagreb’s Upper town with all the historic sights and the city’s vibe.

If you don’t have your own vehicle, it is possible to arrange one (car, minivan or a bus). During the panoramic ride you will see the highlights of Zagreb’s Lower Town. You will be driving by the Mimara museum that hosts numerous pieces of art collected by Ante and Wiltrud Topić Mimara, Museum of Arts and Crafts, 19th century neo-baroque building of Croatian National Theatre and the seat of the biggest University in Croatia – University of Zagreb. We will drive along Zagreb’s Green Horseshoe, a sequence of 8 connected parks and squares, where you will get a chance to see one of the stations where famous Orient Express train used to stop at – Zagreb's main train station and the hotel built for its passengers – Hotel Esplanade. Just opposite of the train station is the square named after first Croatian king -Tomislav with his statue and a breathtaking Art Pavilion behind it. Panoramic tour by vehicle usually lasts approximately 30 minutes and it is usually before the walking tour.

After the panoramic tour, 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 Croatian 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, you will climb up to Gradec, better known as Zagreb’s Upper Town which we will enter through the medieval Stone Gate. In Gradec you will get a chance to see the seat of our country’s administration, the Parliament and the Government, as well as the St. Mark's Church with the famous coloured roof, baroque church of St. Catherine's and the medieval 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, also known as the shortest funicular in Europe. Final point of the tour is Zagreb’s main square – Ban Jelačić Square.

I like Lisinski very much. It was very intense to perform there, because people came, listened carefully and felt the music in their hearts. Lisinski is a beautiful concert hall, and I am very honored to be performing there. I have wonderful memories of my first performance in Lisinski.

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.
