Tour description

The first and only WWII tour in Zagreb! This is more than a story about just one or two communities - Jewish, orhodox, Serb, Croatian, political groups... This is a story about the city and its citizens and their way of fighting and surviving the toughest times in the history of Zagreb and Croatia. Zagreb World War II Tour gives answers to frequently asked questions about the events during the nineteen thirties and forties. Zagreb was developing fast in those days especially to the east of the historical center. Nice and stylish houses and buildings of that period were transformed during WW2 to become the symbols of the nightmare that started in April 1941.  The brutality of the revenge gave a bittersweet taste to the victory in 1945.

This tour will concentrate on stories and sites strongly connected to the destinies of people involved in events between 1939 until 1948. The itinerary will takes us from the modern parts of Zagreb built during 1920 and 1930 through the historical center – following also the railway system - and along the locations where authorities assembled people to deport them to the concentration camps, sealing their fates because of the wrong race, nationality or religion.This tour is available on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays on request. On request it is possible to do it on other days, for that please make a regular request with comment.
