Zagreb and its history can recently be experienced by its many visitors by riding a tour bus through the city streets. Instead of having the usual tour guide with a microphone,tourists can use the headphones provided, through which they can experience the tour of the city with the routes and specific landmarks explained in seven languages.
The open top bus offers a shorter and a longer route. The ride on the shorter ‘red route’ lasts one hour, through the Upper and Lower town, while the longer ‘green route’ lasts two hours and includes two of the famous Zagreb lakes, Bundek and Jarun.
The ride on the tour bus enables guests to get to know, through the one or two hour tour, the rich 900 year old history of the city and many interesting facts connected to it, for example: that the first written document mentioning Zagreb dates back to 1094., that Radio Zagreb, as the first radio station in this part of Europe first started broadcasting in 1926. and that the first motorised vehicle first drove through the streets of Zagreb in1901.
