I loved this side of Zagreb, the museums ( go to the museum of Broken Relantionships, something special), the Gate, the view over Zagreb.. Really a place to visit. If you ask for a map at the tourism center, you'll find a walking path to meet all the special places in this area.

A lovely area to stroll around with pretty buildings, historical sites, shops and an array of quaint and funky restaurants. You can use one of the tourist maps to make sure you see everything or just wander around and get a feel for the place.

A fantastic little old town with sights at every turn. If you grab a tourist map and follow the marked route you will get to see all of them. Start with a ride on the funicular, climb the observation tower, then meander through the streets. Must see sights have to be the mosaic roof of the church, the tiny chapel... More

We walked around Upper town and had a coffee in one of the bars. 2-3 hours is more than enough time for both.

Strolling in the streets and learning about this part of the city was easy with the little book/guide you can get at the hotel or tourist office proposing you planned self walking tours in Zagreb, issued by the local tourist office (available in many languages).

We took the funicular up to old town, thinking there might be lots to see/do (having been to a lot of old towns in Croatia), but we were a little disappointed in the range of attrcations (one museum of unique Croatian art was quite interesting)

We loved touring Gornji Grad on our one day in Zagreb: so many lovely museums and pretty parks, serene and scenic places to escape the bustle of the commercial area below. Puzzlingly, although we were there at the height of tourist season on a day with perfect weather, with the exception of two tour groups at St. Mark's Church, the... More

photo opportunities abound, but linger in the bars and cafes. See if you can spot St George killing the dragon at the Stone gate: not just the patron Saint of England

Older part of Zagreb, with plenty to see. Great for a stroll during the day or at night. Some museums but I didn't visit any.
