What you'll do

In this history based tour we will talk about recent and far history of Zagreb and Croatia including WWII, war in exYugoslavia, comunist and nazi regime etc. As master's degree historian I will try to answer all of your questions and give you croatian perspective of those interesting times in our hisotry.


Meet me at Nikole Zrinjskog square in front of the meteorological pillar. At first we will explore Downtown-park Zrinjevac, the most beautiful park of Zagreb's green horseshoe, and Jelačić square, main square which is dedicated to one of the most important figure in croatian history. Our tour will continue to Zagreb's cathedral from 11th century and to Dolac-the oldest open farmer's market in the city. Just few minutes later we will reach to Tkalčićeva street, nowadays street of coffee shops, bars and pubs but also a street which hides medieval history of the city. I will take you to the shortest funicular in the world which will bring you to the Upper town of Zagreb. Tour will proceed to St.Mark's square-center of political life in Croatia, Parliament, Goverment and constitutional Court are located there, but also beautiful church of St. Mark from 13th century. A short stroll through Stone Gate, only remained gates of medieval Zagreb, will bring us back to the Main square where the tour will finish.

A must do when in Zagreb. Luka is such a brilliant guide of his city, he’s an amazing story teller, history buff (if I may say), passionate about anything Zagreb and very thoughtful. We enjoyed the walk and all the information and stories he provided. He also gave an excellent list of recommendations on where to go for traditional Croatian food, drinks, and museum to see.

Outstanding. One of the best tour guides ever (I’ve traveled all over and I love historical/cultural tours, so I’m comparing many). Luka’s enthusiasm for his city is contagious. His knowledge of history is vast. His kindness is obvious. The value of this tour can’t be beat and you SHOULD go on this tour. It was a special experience.

Luka gave me a few days of advanced warning that he wasn't going to make our tour due to personal reasons. I appreciate that he made every effort to try to reschedule to a time that would work for us but our schedule was pretty tight. Initially, I thought he was going to have to cancel but he kindly offered for his friend, Tomislav to take over the originally scheduled tour. It was very thoughtful of him and he still provided recommendations for our time in Zagreb via text. The tour with Tomislav was excellent!

My friend and I loved Luka's tour! We learned so much history about Croatia and were impressed with how many current events Luka incorporated into the tour! He provides the best recommendations and is an excellent story teller. For his the price of his tour, the experience is 100% worth it. Would recommend him to any friend of mine!
