The Upper Town is the place to visit in Zagreb. When you pass all of the attraction in center, you should prepare yourself to a walk up by lots of stairs, but when you feel the atmosphere up there, you will not regret. Also there is a funicular, known as the shortest funicular in the world designed for public transport,... More

It's quite a walk up lots of stairs, but it's worth it. Good museums and restaurants. Good views of the lower area.

The Upper Town is truly the most romantic and beautiful part of Zagreb but also sleepy. Unlike tecting the streets around here almost no one can be an advantage

Upper Town (Gornji Grad), is a beautiful part og Zagreb to be walked. Narrow streets, arts,folklor and souvenirs, St. Marcos square with the samename church, the Presidential Residence, the European Building, small museums, St. George on the hourse, St. Cathrine's chapel, small coffee-shops, the open-market and at the end nice views from the top. You must go there anyway.

Upper Town in Zagreb is a very cozy place to walk around. You keep finding new small details every time you walk on a street. all the old buildings and the view is a beautyful sight.

A relatively small area, not much to see on the outside of buildings other than the St Mark's Church. Travel up by the funicular railway or up one of the many stepped paths.

I would have to agree with the other reviews who feel this is the best part of Zagreb. Not only does it ooze character and charm but it's also where all the best restaurants, quaint coffee shops and attractions are. This area is a must see
