It is very easy to spend many hours casually strolling the cobblestone streets. So nice and quiet with lots of cool bars and cafes. Also a great view of the new town below.

Medieval houses and official buildings with boutiques and coffee shops in between . To get there you can either go by funicular or just walk . From there you can see the all town .

Zagreb is a beautiful city and Upper Town is probably the most beautiful place of this city but if you will go there during the summer probably the city will be empty because the people of Zagreb goes to the coast enjoy their beaches.
