Since the legs have a limited range of motion, we’ll act like poets, jelacic.trg_walking on the ground with heads in the cloud. Every city can be explored in myriad ways, but one thing we dislike – being lost. Let’s get Happily Lost’ in Zagreb. During Zagreb private city tour we’ll visit places that travelers often miss, because they are not well documented.

Walking in Zagreb downtown area, stories, myths and legends will present the old medieval towns (Gradec & Kaptol). We’ll explain how they were merged into one city – Zagreb. And its slow transformation to cosmopolitan European metropolis. Along the way, we will definitely stop at Dolac market – Big belly of Zagreb, checking Kumica booth. (Kumica = local hard-working farm woman)

Optional: Wine-tasting
