What you can expect
Discover all the top landmarks of Zagreb during a biking excursion through the city's Lower Town and Upper Town. With a knowledgeable guide, visit places like the National Theatre, Dolac market, Stone Gate, the Cathedral, Green Horseshoes, and Bloody Bridge, learning the story of each site and the city as you ride.
Hop aboard your bike and set off with your guide, starting your journey from the main Ban Josip Jelacic Square in the city center. Pedal first to the Croatian National Theatre, a historic ballet and opera house established in 1836, and learn of the many artists who have performed there. Next, ride to the Upper Town to visit Saint Mark's Square, a historic plaza sporting important buildings like the Baroque-style Banksi dvori—the seat of the government—and the Croatian Parliament building.
In the Lower Town, bicycle past the Green Horseshoe, a U-shaped collection of lush city squares and parks. Make a stop at the Bloody Bridge, known locally Krvavi Most, a street whose name is a reminder of the violent conflicts in Zagreb's past between its 2 historic divisions, Gradec and Kaptol. Learn about the tension between the areas before traveling to the Stone Gate, which was once an entrance to the medieval town of Gradec. The site now acts as a religious shrine where many go to pray for luck, happiness, and love. As you circle back toward your starting point, your guide offers tips on the best places to visit for the rest of your stay.
