Best spots you can't miss on your tour in Zagreb
Ban Jelacic square is the main square and also the heart of Zagreb! Its elevated position allows you to view beautiful towers of Zagreb's Cathedral, one of the most important symbols of Christian religion in Croatia. Zagreb's cathedral is built in neo-gothic style and it's a must see in Zagreb!
In the upper town of Zagreb there are lots of tourist attractions and sights to see. St. Marko's church is very unique with Croatian symbols on its roof; it makes it one of Zagreb's most recognizable symbols. The Lotrscak Tower dates from 13th century; don't miss visiting it at high noon when the cannon is being fired! One of the most attractive and romantic walking paths in Zagreb is the Strossmayer's promenade located at the upper town of Zagreb. It will offer you a wonderful view of the entire city below and you can also take a photo with a sculpture of our well known poet A.G.Matos, sitting on the bench at the promenade.
The Zagreb Funicular connects Strossmayer's promenade with Ilica street. It's one of the shortest public-transport funiculars in the world! It was built in 1890 and today ride cost only 50 cent.
Croatian National Theater is situated at lower town of Zagreb. It is one of the most beautiful buildings in Zagreb. The famous wall fountain „The Source of Life", designed by Croatian artist Ivan Mestrovic, is located at the very entrance of the theater. Downtown parks in Zagreb are parts of Lenucci's green horseshoe. All the downtown parks are nicely decorated, with many lovely benches, fountains and sculptures, so you can relax and enjoy Zagreb's history!
And if you get tired of sightseeing, you can head to Tkalciceva street – the most famous bar street in Zagreb, popularly known as „Tkalca". Tkalciceva street is also known as a creek street, because in the past there was a creek flowing in its place! In the past it was also a well-known brothel street where the world's oldest job was taking place! And about half way up the street, on number 52 we have our own club! It's called „Funk club" and it's a very funky place where all the guest can enjoy their free welcome rakija shot!
