Zagreb History of Socialism Bike Tour

For those who want a different view of the city beyond the glamorous buildings of the city centre, this tour is exactly what you need! We've created the perfect itinerary to offer you a unique view of the metropolis of Zagreb.

On the other side of the river Sava, a less-visited side of the city awaits you. New Zagreb was formed after World War II and today its neighborhoods tell us stories of time and culture with different values ​​and priorities. Ride with us through more than half a century of modernism, socialism and creative urban and architectural solutions, with some astonishing brutalism and industrial architecture examples. During the ride, you'll hear what life was like in Zagreb in Yugoslavia, what socialism looked like, why and how Yugoslavia fell apart. Your guide will bring your into the conversation so that you can not only listen but discuss your opinons; was it better then or now? The personal stories of your guide reveal the true face of history and real people's experiences.

This route includes also a beautiful park with lake Bundek, a favorite local spot. We'll also ride by some of the most important venues of our fast-growing and vivid street art scene.
