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.

Walking in Zagreb downtown area, we’ll tell you the stories about 2 old medieval towns (Gradec & Kaptol aka Upper Town). 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’ stand. (Kumica = local hard-working farm woman). You’ll see following landmarks: Main square, Cathedral, Dolac farmer’s market, 16.cent defensive wall, Stone Gate, St.Mark’s church, Cannon tower.
