This is a nice area to look around, easy to navigate and plenty of attractions close together, so no worries about finding things or too much walking. Accessible by the funicular which is a bonus.

We thought that the iew would be better as we have walked many up the stairs but not that impressive. It has a lot of history and presidential offices.

The area is quite compact and easily done in one day. Main attractions are a couple of churches and museums.

The old city was surrounded by the wall, and you should visit... More

When in Zagreb, you must visit the ancient OLD upper Town as it's referred to.

Take the tram up, the world's... More

Cobble stone streets, old houses with beautiful facades and diverse churches transfer you to a different era. Many things to see but wondering around is your best pass time. St Marc's church is an amazing monument and the central structure of the upper town. Many places of worship are scattered throughout the area. Famous Croatian sculptor Ivan Meštrović had his...

Whole Zagreb can be considered as soft version of Vienna. Though the influence is undeniable, one can still feel Zagreb's individual soul. And although you can easily imagine that you are walking in Vienna the Upper town is so very....Croatian undeniably. Warmly recommended.

From Zagreb funicular, the shortest one in the World carrying passengers, to Trg Bana Jelacica, the Main square of Zagreb City, seeing along the way some very narrow streets and stairs, several beautiful churches including Zagreb Cathedral, visiting museums and galleries in the neighborhood, visiting Patrica Kerempuh monument, sitting in cafes in Tkalciceva street, eating perfect pizza in Nocturno on...

Pretty and historic neighborhood of Zagreb filled with museums, government buildings and churches along the cobblestone streets and squares. Everything is within easy walking distance. Pretty views and photo opportunities
