Culture, History & Arts

Zagreb, the capital of Croatia, is a cultural and artistic center of the region. We love to stroll the old streets and courtyards of Gradec (the Upper Town), drink coffee or beer in Tkalciceva Street, buy the produce on farmer’s markets, chat with friends on the Flower Square and comment the recent cultural and social events. Take this guided culture & history walking tour and meet the city with your local guide. Depending on the day of your arrival and sightseeingwe can make some changes to the itinerary.

      Culture and History walk, around 1,5h-2h : 17 EUR per person for a minimum of 2 people

 This walking tour lasts around 2 hours, and depends also on your request.

Due tu earthquakes of 2020 many museums and churches are still closed for visits.


The Upper Town has seven museums, all very popular among the citizens of Zagreb and all top museums in their fields.

  • We recommend to visit The Atelier Mestrovic. The artist’s family house is the location of his museum, a charming place in Mletacka St.

  • Few steps to the south, on the corner is the immensely popular Museum of Broken Relationships.
  • Next to the beautiful St. Catherine’s Church there is a Klovic Gallery – recently with extraordinary guest exhibitions!

Discovering Zagreb

How to discover a new destination? The best way to do it is by doing a guided tour – through your guide (a local) you can meet other locals on your way through Zagreb. Guided tours are very popular and we promote them because good information is hard to find. The dynamics of the tour can be arranged, whether you prefer to walk around (so you don’t miss the attractions) or to listen to the story of Zagreb.
