Very nice area and the view over Zagreb is really nice. I would recommend to take a city tour with Blue Bike, Zagreb. You get to know so much of the history, see beautiful buildings and then this area has many nice restaurants!

A great blend of ancient buildings and new arrivals. Zegreb is up and coming with improvements in it's infastructure whilst maintaining it's ancient heritage. New shopping centre partly open is Centar Cvjetni (ulaz Varsavska) and old buildings which are well preserved such as Zegreb cathedral.

Upper Town represents Zagreb's history and tradition. Something special is walking by Zagreb's and Croatians main Chatedrale od saint Marko.

Worth a look due to the history, although you would need a local guide to point out many of the features.

Upper Town in Zagreb is laid out as you would expect from a historical city. However, it somehow doesn't have the charm or character of say, Krakow or Tallinn.
