Zagreb – Discover the «female side of Zagreb» and learn Croatian
The Croatian capital has recently enriched its tourist offering with the project „Zagreb Inside“, featuring two new thematic tours of the Croatian metropolis entitled „the Female side of Zagreb“ and „Do you speak Croatian?“. The project was initiated by Dora Fila and Iva Čaleta, two language teachers and tourist guides.

The first stop of the tour is Manduševac, where tourists can hear about the legend of the girl Manda. The following is in front of the cathedral, where visitors can learn about the dark age of inquisition and the last witch that was burned in Europe, burned right here in Zagreb. At the Dolac market, tourists will hear about the legendary old ladies selling produce at the market, as well as about the first Croatian female journalist, Marija Jurić Zagorka. Tourists also get to see Tkalčićeva Street, Krvavi most („The bloody bridge“), Kamenita vrata and are familiarized with the success of female athlete Janica Kostelić and artists Milka Trnina and Mija Čorak Slavenska.

While Iva reveals the female side of Zagreb to visitors, i.e. gets them to know with more and less well-known female Zagreb locals, who have left their mark on the city's history, each in her own way, Dora introduces the City of Zagreb and the Croatian language in an unusual way in her one-and-a-half-hour tour „Do you speak Croatian?“. She reveals to visitors that in Zagreb it is completely normal to drink coffee for an hour and a half, how to say „I love you“, „good day“, „how are you“ and 20 other Croatian words, as well as how to write their own name in the Glagolitic script. While touring the most important sites of the city, visitors will also learn while Zagreb locals greet each other with the word „bok“.

For now, the tours are organized once a week, „The female side of Zagreb“ Fridays and „Do you speak Croatian?“ Saturdays.
