INTO THE FOREST
explore the city the way the locals do and immerse yourself in the history... and the woods.
Zagreb is charming. Harmonious architecture, urban vibe, bursting with creativity.... but there must be more to Zagreb than it's city center, right? After all, within the narrow city center you can already feel the influence of tourism. How about a unique local experience that will change your perspective of the city?
Do you know that people from Zagreb enjoy visits to their beautiful green mountain called Medvednica? Do you know they simply adore walking around their city until it takes them to places they haven't even been aware of? That's what we'd like to offer through this tour. We want to take you to our favorite places on the north side of the city, far away from the crowds. To show you witnesses of the times long past, from an incredibly peaceful baroque pilgrimage spot, to some abandoned objects at the foot of mount Medvednica.
After we explore the amazing places the tour guide books don't mention, it's only fair we turn to a cosy traditional restaurant for a lunch.

Please, wear comfortable shoes and we advise you to dress in layers. We're not going to hike the mountain, but we're going into the forest at the bottom of the mountain and some parts of the terrain are uneven. It's always a few degrees colder in the woods. Please, make sure to put an insect repellent on, because the most dangerous animals in the forests of Zagreb are the smallest ones (especially ticks).
