About
For all of you who want to see more than the usual sights, or for those who are eager to find out what socialism and communism was all about, we've designed the tour to New Zagreb: Back to Socialism tour. Crossing over the river Sava, you'll be entering completely different scenery, discovering a very complex side of Zagreb that is not visited by tourists ever. Here you'll get to see the development of our city since the Post-World War II era, mainly through that "mystical" time of communism, and see how it breathes today as it remains the main housing area of Zagreb. New Zagreb is currently also a cradle of a very vivacious Croatian contemporary art scene.

We enjoyed the tour a lot. We had an excellent tourguide and we went to Novi Zagreb to see other things than the usual tourist places.

Blue Bike is the best. Alida was wonderful. She was easy to communicate with-extremely knowledgeable of Zagreb and it’s complicated history and politics. I will join her again and recommend her / Blue Bike you anyone.💚

Cruisy bike tour of beautiful zagreb
Oct 2019 • Friends
What better way to see, smell, feel a vibe and enjoy the heart of a city than to weave your way through it on a bike? We enjoyed visiting landmarks and having our knowledgeable guide Roza putting it in context with passion and enthusiasm. Not only did it make us want to learn more of European history, it made me appreciate those from Croatia that have made their home in Australia. The bikes were forgiving and easy to use. No better way to see Zagreb’s parks and gardens in stunning autumn. Recommend!

Great guide with fascinating stories and details
Jul 2019
I signed up for the group tour ‘Back to socialism bike tour’ and quickly respons and confirmation. On the morning i came to the start place in Zagreb, i seemed being the only participant. Fortunately that was no problem and i got a private tour, guide Bruno took me to whole zagreb, for nearly three hours, no shortened version. Very inspiring and enthousiastic. If you like to discover a city, including history and special details, thuis tour is a good one.

Jul 2019 • Friends
Our tour with Roza was amazing. We absolutely loved it! She gave us so much interesting information and made the ride super enjoyable! We really got to know the city and local life through her, and even ended up having dinner and going out for drinks with her! We are so grateful for your time, Roza! Thanks for plunging us into Croatian life and showing us around with so much enthusiasm and love for your hometown :)

Early morning tour to escape the heat
Jun 2019 • Solo
Alida contacted me beforehand to let me know there was another tour the day I applied for. I looked to get out of the old town and therefore was happy to agree to go the next day instead and agreeing on an early start due to the warm weather.

I gained a lot of insightful information about New Zagreb on what turned out as a private tour with Alida and also took good use of the restaurant recommendation afterwards. Nice and easy bike ride and esvape from the busy streets of the centre of Zagreb

Super Informative Bike Tour
Jun 2019 • Couples
Roza was our tour guide for the Back to Socialism bike tour. She was incredibly knowledgeable about local and international European history that informed the experience in Croatia. We learned so much and are still digesting and applying all the bits of information to the other things we've seen since. Our only suggestion would be more biking and stops that went with the history, and less information at each stop. It was great to get further beyond the city center/old town and see how the new parts of Zagreb were evolving...and a great view of the mountains!

Rose was an amazing tour guide with lots of expert knowledge and can tell you as much or as little that you are interested in. Zagreb was great for cycling with lots of bike paths and wide straight roads and no hills.Gret way to see New Zagreb.

Pedal Power to the People
May 2019 • Friends
Our guide Bruno was informative and charming as we pedalled around both new and old Zagreb. Our minds were blown with the tumultuous history of the city and region and we were struck with how, despite all this, the resiliency of the people. Bruno was eager to answer any questions we had and engage us in conversation about ideologies and politics while retaining a sense of balance.

Excellent Informative Tour!
I really enjoyed my bike tour with Bruno. He was a fantastic guide and taught me many things about Zagreb. The Socialism bike tour was a great way to see the newer part of the city south of the river. I highly recommend the tour and the company and I hope to do more tours with them in the future!
