Day 2
Zagreb | Zagreb

Zagreb has long enjoyed the influence of both the Eastern and Western culture. In medieval times, Zagreb consisted of two separate towns, Kaptol, the religious center, and Gradec, the commercial hub. The river Medvescak in-between the two towns was often the site of fierce battles between them. Today, Gradec and Kaptol together form the Upper Town, or Gornji Grad, which forms the historic Old Town of Zagreb. The Lower Town, or Donji Grad, on the plains is more chic and contemporary.

This morning, explore Gornji Grad (Upper Town) with your guide. The best way to get around the Old Town is on foot, so wear your most comfortable walking shoes.

Begin your stroll with a visit to the Dolac, the open-air fruit and vegetable market in Old Town. You will see the Church of St. Mary and the towering spires of St. Stephen’s Cathedral, the most prominent landmarks on the city’s skyline. The Cathedral contains the tombs of Croatia’s important personages including Ivan Mestrovic, the famous Croatian sculptor. Don’t miss the historic stone city gates and the booming cannon of the Lotrscak Tower! Stop by the 17th century church, dedicated to St. Catherine, the Bans Palace which was home to the Viceroy, and St. Mark’s Church.

Today you will also have the opportunity to visit the atelier of Croatia’s most famous sculptors – Ivan Mestrovic. Your guide will take you to his studio and home where he created some of his best known work. This fascinating museum allows you to imagine how Mestrovic lived and worked during his almost 20 years here.

The rest of the afternoon is at your leisure.

Note: All sightseeing today is on foot. Please wear comfortable footwear.
