Take a walk with me! Illusions of Torture is a unique museum walking tour which gives you an opportunity to explore the capital city of Croatia and visit two unusual, alternative museums. At the end we have a little surprise for you that will take your breath away.


Find out what secrets lay beneath the streets, why does the cannon shoot every day at noon, exactly how superstitious were the citizens through history and why is the statue on the main square vibrating.

Museums we are visiting are:

1. Museum of Illusions
You won´t believe your eyes!
Defy gravity in a room where water flows uphill, see your friend grow or shrink right before your eyes, get lost in a maze of mirrors and serve somebody`s head on a tray.

2. Museum of Torture
This „Tortureum“ offers an insight into its unique collection of various instruments of torture and execution that have been in use since the ancient times to the present day. See, touch and try exhibits that were used to humiliate, torture, injure or execute the victim.
