This sightseeing tour is ideal if you are interested in a short tour of the city that will cover the most important sights and a part of the lively Zagreb daily life. You'll take a walk through the oldest parts of the town, hear the old Zagreb stories and legends, and enjoy walks through the green promenades in the good company of our guide. Zagreb has a rich cultural heritage that dates back to prehistoric times. The first humans inhabited the Zagreb area during the Stone Age, about 35,000 B.C. Present day Zagreb arose from the merger of two settlements: Gradec and Kaptol. Kaptol developed first into a spiritual centre, where the priests received lands and built manor houses. Somewhat later, Gradec began to develop on the western side of the Medveščak stream. In the 13th century, King Bela IV bestowed upon the residents of Gradec a Golden Bula, in gratitude for providing shelter and to strengthen the defences of the country. The Golden Bula was a privilege that excluded Gradec from the governor's rules, and bound it only to the Royal military. The City of Zagreb, with its cultural and historical heritage and significance, is one of the most vital cities in Europe.

At the museum, you can become acquainted with the way of life of the Krapina Neanderthals, and find out the answers to the following questions: Who were these people who existed between 30 and 300 thousand years ago? How did the science of the 19th century discover and interpret their existence and what do we know today about the Stone Age humans who hunted rhinoceros here 125 thousand years ago? Where is the position of the Neanderthals on the family tree of human history? and many more.
Veliki Tabor is one of the best preserved late medieval and Renaissance fortified towns in continental Croatia. It was built by the Rattkay noble family during the 16th century, and remained in their possession until 1793. The oldest part of the complex is the central fortress which had a residential and defensive function. Later, in the 16th century, four semi-circular towers were added on, while the rooms along the northern wall were added on in the 17th century. Among the owners of the castle is well known Croatian painter Oton Iveković, who painted the castle and its picturesque surroundings in many paintings.
Visit the newly opened exhibition space in the Velika Tabor castle and take in the beauty of the castle's architecture, feel the life of the past and listen to interesting stories and legends, view one of the exhibits or participate in a workshop.

Ethno Selo Kumrovec – the story of Josip Broz Tito
The Kumrovec ''Staro Selo'' (Old Village) Ethnological Museum is a protected rural site. This is an outdoor museum with 'in-situ' preserved authentic rural houses from the turn of the 20th century. Some 40 structures have been preserved and fitted with historical and ethnological exhibits. When entering the village, you will feel as though you have stepped right into the past. The village also includes the birth house of Josip Broz Tito, former Yugoslav president, and one of the leaders of the Non-Aligned Movement. Though the houses are part of the museum, the surrounding inhabited houses give the village its life, and the feeling of a living past in the present.
Since 1969, the “Staro Selo” has been a protected rural site and listed in the Register of 1st Category Cultural Monuments. The “Staro Selo” Museum is Croatia's only outdoor museum, and with its content justifies its existence alongside museums such as the Skansen Museum in Sweden.

Rastoke and Plitvice Lakes National Park

Start from ZAGREB
Duration: 1 day
Excursion for 1-7 persons
Vehicle rental, with or without a driver
Possibility of organising lunch
Distance from Zagreb: 140 km

The excursion begins with travel to the Plitvice Lakes National Park in the morning hours. After approximately 1 hour, we will stop in the village Rastoke in Slunk, just outside the Plitvice Lakes. In Rastoke, there will be time for sightseeing, photography and a drink next to the roar of the waterfalls. Rastoke is a lovely introduction to the national park. We continue on to Plitvice, and spend the next few hours viewing the magnificent lakes and waterfalls.
Rastoke arose through a play of nature at the confluence of the Slunjčica River into the Korana River. Nature has played with the bluish-green waters of the Slunjčica River and divided them into a multitude of spraying falls, the loveliest of which are Buk, Hrvoje and Vilina kosa. Rastoke is the perfect introduce to the Plitvice Lakes. Unlike these lakes, Rastoke is special in that the existence of human settlements and water mills became intertwined with the wealth of greenery and its islands some three hundred years ago. What nature has created over thousands of years, and man has built in adaptation to the natural conditions, as seen in the surrounding limestone cliffs, old buildings and the town centre of Slunj, thus has become a harmonious whole. Due to this harmony of historical, ethnographic and architectural cultural heritage, Rastoke was entered into the Register of Immobile Cultural Monuments of the Regional Department for the Protection of Cultural Monuments in Zagreb in 1969.
Plitvice Lakes National Park is the most prominent and most visited of Croatia's eight national parks, and is the only natural monument among many cultural monuments in Croatia to be enlisted on the UNESCO World Heritage List (in 1979), among the first in the world. The national park lies within the Dinaric karst region that is characterised by the carbonate geological substrate, numerous karst forms, rarely appearing surface watercourses, and a pronounced link between the surface and underground through a multitude of fissures. The abundance of water and creation of lakes in such an environment is an exceptional and precious phenomenon.
