At its center, Upper Town is the site of the Gothic, twin-spired Zagreb Cathedral and 13th-century St. Mark’s Church, with a colorfully tiled roof. Nearby is pedestrian-friendly Tkalčićeva Street, lined with outdoor cafes. Lower Town has the main square, Ban Jelačić, plus shops, museums and parks.

Breakfast at the hotel. Proceed to a city center meeting point, where you will meet your tour guide for the Zagreb walking city tour. Take a walk with us and discover art, architecture, history and everyday life of Croatia's capital city, Zagreb! We start at Zagreb's main square, The Ban Jelačić Square, where we introduce you to the founding of the city, its historical and legendary origins. Passing through the Praška Street we come to the lively park called Zrinjevac. In no time you will feel the difference between the crowded main square, and suddenly dive into the green peaceful beauty that is Zrinjevac. Surrounding the park, you will see many beautiful historical buildings, and various museums and galleries.
At the Square we can admire the building and check which exhibition is on display at the moment. Passing through the park, we come to Zagreb's main railway station, built in the late 19th century. Following the street we come to the Art-Deco-styled Esplanade Hotel, and talk about its history and famous guests. The next green stop on our route is the Botanical garden, a beautiful green oasis in the centre of the city which holds many domestic and exotic plants. Crossing the street, we find ourselves in front of the Croatian National Archive, a beautiful Art Noveau building, and stop to talk about the father of Croatian literature, Marko Marulić, whose statue is situated in front of the entrance. The tour takes us further, towards the Croatian National Theatre and the building of University of Zagreb, where you will get familiar with the works of Croatia's most renowned sculptor, the late Ivan Meštrović.
Breakfast at the hotel. Explore the first and largest national park in Croatia and discover Rastoke, a hidden gem called 'Little Plitvice. Get to know the oldest and most famous Croatian National Park Plitvice Lakes and the unique, still unknown place of Rastoke and complete your stay with an unforgettable day in pristine nature. Turquoise lakes, large and small waterfalls, deep green forests, watermills, over 20 km of footpaths through the Park, boat ride and panoramic train, are waiting for you to visit them. An experienced, licensed guide will make you acquainted with the natural beauties in the heart of Croatia. Explore the sensational Plitvice Lakes National Park on this one day tour from Zagreb. Meet us at our centrally located meeting point and start an exciting journey towards this UNESCO-listed site, one of the must-see sights in the area. Just before arriving at Plitvice Lakes the path will take us to Rastoke, which is a little village full of little ponds and waterfalls and therefore also called 'Little Plitvice'. The unanticipated beauty of this National Park lies in its sixteen stunning turquoise-colored lakes, harmoniously inter-connected by a chain of waterfalls and surrounded by serene deep-green forests. Explore the lakes with a professional guide, breathe in the fresh mountain air and enjoy a short boat ride across one of the lakes while listening to the sound of water crashing against the ground. Return to Zagreb in the late afternoon where you'll be dropped off at the meeting point.

Overnight in Split.
Breakfast at the hotel. Begin your royal secret of Split adventure in the not-so-modest home of the Roman emperor Diocletian. His colossal 1,700-year-old palace is not only a UNESCO World Heritage Monument but also a popular hangout for locals of Split and the cast of Game of Thrones. As we wander into the heart of the city, peristil, we’ll discover the secrets of Diocletian’s life hidden in the walls of the world’s best preserved Roman palace – find out why he loved salad so much and why a piece of the mythical White Stone can make you happy. It is no secret, however, that the way to a Dalmatian’s heart is through the stomach. We’ll show you a traditional fish market, peskarija, where locals have been buying fresh seafood for centuries. Your mouth will surely be watering by now, so we’ll take you for a traditional Dalmatian snack fit for a king – air-dried smoked meat, soft sheep cheese, octopus salad, anchovies and olives. During your snack, your local guide will regale you with Split tales, past and present. After all, wine is one of our oldest traditions and a staple of the Mediterranean diet, so just stay calm and do as the Romans do! We’ll finish our tour on the Riva promenade, leaving you feeling as satisfied and pampered as the emperor Diocletian himself. Our local guides will point you to their favourite coffee shops and the best spots for an evening of Dalmatian delicacies and entertainment.
