Tkalchicheva Street is Zagreb main hub for cafes, restaurants and casual nightlife. Also known as Tkalcha, it features dozens of places where you will find something to your liking.

Tkalchicheva is filled with life. Numerous boutiques, traditional shops, restaurants, cafes and outdoor events will fill your day.

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.

The street is full of life as it has numerous boutiques, traditional shops, restaurants among others. I collected a lot of souvenirs such as rugs, carpets from the traditional shops which i took to my life and she really loved them. As i walked down the historic street i was amazed by the sight of the famous statue and the coloured houses. It was an amazing experience to see old places, yet still have their charm intact. I loved most, the wonderful cuisines prepared in the hotels and cafes around.

We went shopping in the boutique with my friends and we loved the variety fashions to choose from. On our way back we sat on the beautiful benches which offered so much tranquility. We then toured the historical places nearby by the carriages pulled by horses and took a lot of pictures, it was superfun. The most precious moment for us was the massage session at the spa which was so relaxing. It was a cheap and affordable place to vacate with my friends.

Looking to purchase some souvenirs, this is the place to be. This street has a couple of traditional shops and boutiques. It is a very busy street with a lot of restaurants and cafes to try out croatian delicacies. Everything in this street is quite affordable. Nice place to see the daily life of people in this country.

I toured this place at night and I was impressed by its nightlife. The pubs and street events were full of life. There were a few carriages one could take a ride in and tour the street. It is a nice trading centre with an amazing history of the red light. It is fascinating how it has still managed to be a trading centre from the 19th century.

The street is made up of a lot of things ranging from shops to buildings and other amenities. i visited the street and enjoyed how the street is pedestrian only and has many restaurants on the way which are lovely. I had the chance of having brunch at one of the restaurants and the dishes served were top notch. As i was on a walk at the street i also saw many businesses on the street that sold different types on an organised way. The night life of the street is totally unforgettable as went out sat night and it was mind blowing.

We visited the street in Zagreb and it was a wonderful experience. I went shopping on the botiques and the shops that offered the best of the things in town. I also attended the street event that was organised and the experience was unique. I could not leave without buying some of the good traditional things which were lovely and amazing to see.
