Once it was a stream that divided two oldest Zagreb settlements, Gradec and Kaptol. Because of contamination by all the shops, the stream was diverted.
In the period 1899 to 1941, almost every house in Tkalchicheva street was a brothel. Because it is in the centre, all windows had to have opaque glass and red lanterns. For this reason, Zagreb was the first city in Europe with the proper red light district.
Today Tkalciceva Street continues its century-old tradition of Zagreb craftsmen and traders and is one of the most attractive streets in the city.
