A chance to save some cash this weekend and taking a guided tour of some major Croatian cities…
Free guided tours of cities across the country will be held over the weekend to celebrate International Tourist Guide Day which falls on 21 February 2016.
If you are in Dubrovnik the free guided tours start on Saturday 20 February 2016 at 10:00 from Pile Gate. There will also be free expert guided tours in the capital Zagreb. The free tours on Saturday will leave at two times – 10:00 and 11:00. The meeting point in Zagreb is in front of the tourist information centre on Ban Jelačić square.
On Sunday 21 February Rijeka and Opatija will be offering free guided tours on 2 separate buses. At 9:00 from Jelačić square in Rijeka one bus will set off, whilst at 10:30 it will head off to Opatija.
The TuRistički bus for Opatija will also head off from Slatina at 9:30 and 11:30 it will head to Rijeka. Free tickets for both buses can be picked up from the tourist info centre in Rijeka (Korzo 14) and in Opatija (M. Tito 128).
An initiative from the World Federation of Tourist Guide Associations, the International Tourist Guide Day was first held in 1990 when 15 countries participated. Since then it has grown considerably.
