Go there with the cable car.

Very romantic ath night time. Easy to reach with the cable car. A stroll around at day time is also fun.

Visited the old town many times whilst in Zagreb, there's lots of things to do up here, you have the gorgeous views of the city from the wall the furinicala (tram/lift) which is the oldest public transport within the city and only costs 4kn (40p) to use. This is where Croatias parliament is based as well as the living quarters... More

Every street, every building and park in the upper town imbued with tradition and history. A beautiful place where peace can spend a few hours strolling through the narrow streets

We stayed in the hilton and they have provided free tour guide books around zagreb and the city of zagreb also. We have followed the books and so have visited every single recommended site in zagreb.

Peaceful part right in the centre of ZG. Offers great views and some nice wine bars and in summertime also a garden movie theatre.

Beautiful old buildings, the Upper Town homes one of the best grammar schools in Zagreb - Gimanzija Tituša Brezovačkog. The Government and the Parliament are housed here, as well as the Constitutional Court and some other notable institutions. In their vicinity is the Lotršćak Tower - yes, the one that frightens turist every day precisely at noon. There are few... More

Upper Town is worth visiting. You can do so by taking the funicular or walking a little. If you've never been in a funicular this could be a nice occasion, even if the ride is short. Otherwise i think walking is a better idea. The upper town has a nice feeling. Old and tidy, with well preserved buildings. It guests... More

Upper Town was the best part of Zagreb, historic St Mark Square, Croatian parliament, the presidential palace, St Mark church and Panoramic views of the whole city.

We stayed near the Cathedral which made it very easy to explore the Upper Town on foot. All major sites are within walking distance from the Cathedral. Do wear comfortable shoes as Upper Town is a bit hilly. You can enjoy a nice overview of the Lower Town at the end.

Uptown was cute a definitely worth a look. Loved the church with the tile roof. Great views fairly small. Can walk around for 1-2 hours then head to the street with all the bars and cafes.
