Iva is an absolute joy to be around and her knowledge of the city is vast. Having lived in Zagreb her whole life, she truly has an insider perspective. I highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to experience a city without sitting on a bus and hopping on and off all day. Her tours are enjoyable and immersive. I loved our hike up to Medvedgrad, the medieval fortress in Zagreb. The hike up was relaxing and enjoyable and the view when we arrived was even better. Next time I'm in Zagreb I will definitely be trying out another one of her tours!

Description

Zagreb locals enjoy visiting their beautiful green mountain, Medvednica. They also love walking around their city and discovering places that they previously weren’t aware of.

That's the experience I'd like to share with you through this tour; I’d like to show you my favourite places on the north side of the city, far away from the crowds.

Along the way we’ll enjoy the view of the interesting gardens alongside the ‘Dubravkin put’ walking trail. It will take us to a famous field called Cmrok, where we’ll take some hidden steps and paths to a lovely 18th-century pilgrimage spot.

From there, we’ll take a panoramic ride in an old-school tram. In just a few minutes the tram will take us to the foot of Medvednica Mountain, where we’ll visit some abandoned buildings and then take a lovely path alongside a mountain stream.

After we explore all of these amazing places that the guidebooks don't mention, we can stop at a traditional restaurant for lunch (not included in the tour price).

We’ll be walking under the shade of trees for most of the tour, so it’s a great alternative to classic sightseeing on a hot summer day.
