Zagreb's Old Town is worth a few hours' visit.

This is very easy to access, especially from the furnicular. It is an easy walk around the old churches, museums and shops. The views over Zagreb are very good and if you are there at 12 midday you can hear the cannon. You can spend a short time here or lots enjoying the atmosphere.

Even if most of the main attractions, restaurants and nightlife are located in the Lower Town, we liked the Upper Town much better. The picturesque streets and buildings are in Austrian style, thus proving the Habsburg influence on Croatia's capital. There are no communist buildings or other marks, which can be observed all over the Lower Town.It is very clean... More

Very nice old streets, very well taken care of, I remember having a great evening at a little restaurant in the centre which provided fresh sea food.

A great piece of old town, very pretty with a lot of museums. I visited this with a free tour through my hostel and recommend you do the same so that the interesting history can be provided to you.

The ride on the funicular takes you to the old town above Zagreb. Just before you enter the old town, you see a cute little outdoor bar area - Strossmeyer. After walking around and visiting the old town, its church, museums and such, take a moment, sit and enjoy a cold draft. The cost of funicular is very inexpensive. Enjoy... More

Croatia is still a bit under-the-radar so I enjoyed the city full of mostly locals. Everyone was very friendly and I enjoyed getting lost on my own.

It is very small, just a couple of things to see but they are very neat. The churches, stone bridge, cannon ball, the view are all beatiful. And you should visit Museum of Broken Relationships.

Nice and clean , visit the market place If you don't want the climb to this part of town then use the funicular, its really short. The buildings and the history are fascinating and the view over the rest of the city are super.
