Really neat

A castle in the middle of the city with such rich history. It's somewhat of a ruin but the view is spectacular. Worth the hike if you like panama mix views. Not for the faint.

A quite long walk up to the castle but in a good weather it is a good activity. You can find a gear view on the area from the top of the castle which was free to visit - or at least nobody was asking for tickets

This fortress is one of the symbols of Zagreb. In July it becomes a concert stage for 3 days (14,15,16) with the magnificent scenery. If you happen to be in Zagreb don't miss those magical evenings in organisation of culture centre August Cesarec. Marvellous and unique site with a view on Zagreb will make your heart beat stronger :)

You'll pay entrance 20 kuna. You have a walk through medieval burg. The view is breathtaking. Must go there!

Must see when in Zagreb. We visited on a rather dreary day but actually it was great - added to the atmosphere and it was great being amongst the fog within the castle. Still had great views of Zagreb, if it was a clear day then I'm sure the views would be great. Very interesting and quaint site with lots... More

My husband and I took Uber up to the castle. Find another way back down. You can't reach Uber from the top. It's an interesting walk down, though. Nice restaurant along the way as well. It's a small fortress and doesn't take but an hour to explore thoroughly. Nice for a sunny day. It looks like they are trying to... More

To hike up to the Medvedgrad on the mountain trail it will take you between an hour and an hour and a half. From Medvedgrad you'll have a nice, wide view to the city of Zagreb. In summertime musical evenings are being held there, which is specially impressive; pleasant summer evening, outdoor concert, starry sky!

Medvedgrad is a nice and easy hiking destination, which you can reach from Zagreb. It offers nice views, but could be better maintained. It is also part of Medvednica/Croatian hiking trail.
