This specific tunnel is a true gem of the city. It’s old, it has a rich history and it is amazing. Grič Tunnel was built during World War II, they used it as a bomb shelter and also as a promenade, we assume that they would get from point A to point B safely thanks to this tunnel and its safe corridors. After the war ended, sandly people forgot about it, but in the 1990’s it came in handy once more, this time during the Croatian War of Independence. They used it as a shelter.
The city decided to remodel it in 2016 and today it functions as a tourist attraction. It also hosts some cultural events, so if you’re into that kind of stuff, feel free to check them out! You’ll see some exhibitions, shows and musicians, it’s truly a fun place even tho it has a sad history.
The tunnel ties together Mesnička Street and Stjepan Radić Street and it’s 350 m long. The area where the tunnel is located is rich in landmarks, parks, museums and a lot more, so if you decide to visit the tunnel, you can also visit the Lotršćak Tower, Zagreb 80’s Museum, Art Park and a lot more!
There are no tickets, the entry is completely free!
