After a walk around the older part of the city, guests will visit Downtown Zagreb. The Flower's Square with it's busy cafes and the famous Green Horseshoe. A perfect example of park architecture, this line of parks and squares makes the most beautiful walk in Zagreb. The part that stands out on the walk for sure is the most important cultural institution in Croatia – the Croatian National Theatre.
The tour can start from any centrally located meeting point (hotel lobby or Ban Jelacic Square). The standard route can be modified considering guests' requests and interests, pick up and drop off spots etc.
