Full description
This dark Zagreb tour is a journey into the past. While the tour guide will present you with problems that bothered people in Zagreb a couple of centuries ago, the virtual guide is going to help you experience the way those problems affected real people's lives. Learn how kings, queens, witches, peasants, and prostitutes met their fate throughout a tour that combines fact with fiction. Your tour starts at the Ban Jelačić Square from where the group is taken into an old basement where dark spirits await. The route covers the exact locations of many gruesome historical events. Executions, torture, epidemics, adultery, witch-hunts, rape and murder - the city streets hide dark secrets of the past waiting to be unraveled. Find out whether or not there will be a happy ending or if the darkness of the past is too thick. All of this will be discovered throughout a tour which brings a new and innovative concept to Zagreb's tour guiding scene.

    Our wonderful guide Ivana took us into her universe of human destinies in medieval Zagreb, where prostituted women, male peasant rebels and prematurely married Hungarians played major roles, and where they had to die in different ways in a gruesome way. Dark Mystery Tour lived up to its name. Exciting.

    What a marvelous night we had! The gracious host took great effort to make us feel welcome and transport our imaginations back to a time of alleged witchcraft, plague, and peasant revolts. The steep cobblestone streets of the old town quarter are delightful to walk among all the bustling cafes in the evening hours.

    The experience was fantastic! The guided tour is definitely worth trying! The girl, Diana, gets into her role from the beginning, and leads you with her stories to Medieval Croatia. The atmosphere she creates and the way she tells the stories are for me one of the best shows I've seen! If you are in Croatia, make a reservation for sure!!!
