Visited in the summer of 2015 - the city was quiet and no issues getting about to see its sites. While you can readily walk up numerous paths/steps to get to the upper city for novelty value (costs you 4 Kunar) catch the vehicular which runs about 100m up the hill for a novel experience. The upper town itself is... More

here is where Zagreb started originally, and as you wander the streets you can dream a little of what it must have been like when the people lived here originally and were kept safe by the surrounding walls from any dangers down below. Lots of museums, good restaurants and music venues await you these days, and shopping as well.

The upper town didn't do much for me. It doesn't stand out much against the other European capitals. A few nice shops and a few pretty buildings but nothing to really write home about.

It is elegant part of old town, with stately buildings & St Mark church. Also a 5-7 museums makes a tourist area. We were lucky to see a parade (band included) when we were there. One can walk up there or take a bus, or the funicular.

Upper Town (especially Strossmartre) is very good place for walk when you need some time alone, some time to think, or when you're with one someone, it can be very romantic.

Zagreb is a cute European capital city, with a live vibe and nice people, as well as good food. the best would be to park your car somewhere and take a walk to everywhere in downtown, bcz your car won't be needed. upper town of Zagreb is also very pretty, and will give you a nice view over the city.
