The story of Zagreb
The city of Zagreb, capital of Croatia, is on the historic and political threshold between East and West, illustrating both the continental and Mediterranean spirit of the nation it represents.
The city is protected from the cold northern winds by the mountain of Medvednica and opens up to the rest of the world thanks to a spacious plain and the Sava river. Zagreb, with a population of nearly one million, contains almost a quarter of the entire population of Croatia. Over the centuries, the city was inhabited by people coming from all over Europe; and, in recent years, by people coming from different parts of Croatia, ensuring a rich cultural life. Zagreb is a safe city whose doors are always open.
The façades of Zagreb’s buildings reflect the ebb and flow of history, while its streets and squares bear witness to the coming together of the many cultures that have shaped the identity of this laid-back capital.
Zagreb as we know it today dates back to the Middle Ages, and the settlements on two hills: secular Gradec, today known as the Upper Town; and clerical Kaptol. A trading centre below the two settlements evolved into what is now the main square of Ban Josip Jelačić.
There is also a legend of how the city was named. A governor, exhausted and thirsty from battle, asked a girl named Manda to grab (zagrabi, in Croatian) him out some water from a spring. The spring is now named Manduševac and the city became Zagreb.
Tour times are flexible, with at least half a day’s notice. We recommend daytime tours that end around sunset
