You take the funicular up the hill and find yourself among stately government buildings walking cobbled streets. We got lucky and heard an amazing organ concert at St. Mark's, attending mostly by locals. They appreciate good music! Then a leisurely late-night walk down the hill.

After taking the funicular, there are still plenty of steps, up and down and around the old town. After seeing all the sights, there are many places for a sidewalk lunch and people watching. Stop in and have a bite and a local beer and marvel that the old buildings are still here after a few hundred years..

The delighful Upper Town of Zagreb can be reached by funicular and is thoroughly walkable in a fairly short period of time. However, some of the sights are particularly fascinating.

Zagreb Upper Town (Gornji Grad) refers to its historical core. The mood up there is also pretty historical - quiet, calm and easy going. If you walk there on saturdays you might meet crowd gathered in front of the old city hall (Stara Gradska Vijećnica) celebrating weddings or taking photos in front of St. Marko's church. Upper Town is also... More

Interesting and inexpensive museums, beautiful churches, good restaurants and cafes, and very compact, affording an unusual and satisfying diversity of experiences in a short span of time. In a couple of hours, you can visit St. Mark's Church, The Cathedral of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, The Museum of Broken Relationships, The... More

I loved this side of Zagreb, the museums ( go to the museum of Broken Relantionships, something special), the Gate, the view over Zagreb.. Really a place to visit. If you ask for a map at the tourism center, you'll find a walking path to meet all the special places in this area.

A lovely area to stroll around with pretty buildings, historical sites, shops and an array of quaint and funky restaurants. You can use one of the tourist maps to make sure you see everything or just wander around and get a feel for the place.

A fantastic little old town with sights at every turn. If you grab a tourist map and follow the marked route you will get to see all of them. Start with a ride on the funicular, climb the observation tower, then meander through the streets. Must see sights have to be the mosaic roof of the church, the tiny chapel... More

We walked around Upper town and had a coffee in one of the bars. 2-3 hours is more than enough time for both.

Strolling in the streets and learning about this part of the city was easy with the little book/guide you can get at the hotel or tourist office proposing you planned self walking tours in Zagreb, issued by the local tourist office (available in many languages).
