Use the funicular to go and visit the upper town and then come back on the pedestrian zone where plenty of nice restaurants are and you can have a nice lunch

The upper town is not so high up. The panoramic view is not so great. Then again it could also be because of the weather. The funicular is very cheap if you're too lazy to climb the stairs.

You don't want to miss a stroll through Upper Town while visiting Zagreb. Some beautiful churches, museums and several places to grab a drink or a meal.

Perfect place to stroll. Many old bulding, unique shops and coffee/drink spots. If you had one day in Zagreb, you stroll here.

The cobble stone streets with red tile roof buildings of the medieval Gornji Grad (Upper Town) is home to the cities Cathedral, parliament building, numerous museums, and churches. In my opinion this is the most beautiful area of the Zagreb. A must do in Zagreb .

The old buildings were lovely and in good condition.It was good to be able to wander in the streets as they were mostly car free and tourist free. We were there at the end of winter on a cool day so the number of tourists were down so that was good for us.Even though numbers were down there was still... More

Journeying to the Upper Town is an essential part of any visit to Zagreb. St. Mark’s Church with its stunning roof, the Museum of Naïve Art (well worth a visit), the Museum of Broken Relationships (less appealing our taste, but highly rated by others), the Atelier Mestrovic house (incredible house and sculptures), the views, the quaint streets and the selection...

It's a really quaint, short, but memorable ride! Try to see some free summer concerts in the upper town, the atmosphere is fantastic.
