Although it's not huge, Gornji Grad definitely deserves to pay it a visit. All the main buildings in the center are also close so you could visit most of the Zagreb attractions starting from the old city.

We spent about 45 mins one day and another 45 mins a second day in the Upper Town, where most of the Croatian federal government and city offices and buildings are located. Also, found here is St. Mark's Church, not always open to visitors of the entire structure. We took the funicular up and down, walked thru most of the... More

Very nice part of the city. I am glad they are still keeping it pretty much original. To an American, Zagreb's upper town is nothing but fun to walk through. So many old buildings, so many fascinating history there. You can feel it as soon as you walk in. Please do not visit Zagreb without visiting the "upper town". You... More

It's not that far a climb to the upper town, but you can take the funicular which lets you out on a lovely cobblestoned promenade not far from the Museum of Broken Relationships. But this the place to head for all the really vintage spots and vista spots Zagreb has to offer including St. Mark's Church.

Upper town in Zagreb is a nice place for a stroll, but nothing special compared to other cities in Croatia. Combine with the other attractions along the way.

Gornji Grad was a wonderful and enlightening experience. It's an easy walk from one historical site to the next. But don't neglect to wander down some of the hidden alleys where you can see hidden treasures. You should have a guide book or info you can get online--you don't want to miss anything. Jelacic Square is a great place to... More

Although there is a short funicular to the old town the nearby steps allow you to observe the amazing tiny wine gardens and resident usage. There are so many museums, churches and wondrous places to visit there that the city cannot be fully appreciated without going there. Also the walk down is fun.
