The funicular connects the Lower and Upper parts of the old city.

It is around three quarters of a mile on foot north of the main railway station.

The journey lasts about a minute but saves a lot of energy particularly if you are on your way up.

The cost is 5 kuna.

I cant remember how much we paid but i do remember thinking it would be quicker and easier to just walk down the steps - its a small funicular. Dont regret it though, no funicular's where i'm from so it was a novelty.
It is based in a lovely part of the city and worth visiting.

A convenient way to get from the lower to the upper city or vice versa. The walk on foot is quite steep. It runs every 10 minutes and the price is low. When we used it there were always seats, as if the locals don't use it much

So we walked up to the Zagreb upper town ... wished we had found the funicular sooner. At least we got some good exercise walking up. Took the funicular for the very short ride down just to ride it.

The funicular’s story ... The small Zagreb Funicular opened in 1893 with steam engines that were replaced to electric engines in 1934. The length of the line is only 66 meters (217 ft) which makes it one of the shortest funiculars in the world. But at the same time it ascends 30.5 meters (100 ft) which gives in an inclination of 52%, so it’s also one of the steepest funiculars in the world. The entire ride takes 55 seconds, so sit back and enjoy the view.

when sightseeing, make sure you don't miss the funicular, and then clime onto the Lotrscak tower overlooking the funicular's top station. Absolutely the best view of the city. The funicular takes only 1 minute to ride, make sure you stand on the side facing the city, not the hill, and wait...
At the top station, exit right and you'll get to a terrace with the view. The main square and Cathedral are to the left, ahead of you is the 'lower town' and New Zagreb stretching to the South. Behind your back there will be the Lotrscak tower.

Nothing amazing...just a simple cable car ride really. Quicker than walking up the hill. It runs every 10 mins

This funicular is not the beautiest or longer you will see in your life, in fact is long only 60 meters, you can easily walk without using it, but it is the first gear machine created and used in zagreb in the 19th century, it's a real part of the history of the town, it cost 0.50€, it's worth to do it for its history and it's suggestive

Being an American, you just don't get to ride on a funicular very often and although this one is a relatively short ride, it is a comfortable ride to Upper Town, particularly for those who may need assistance to get from Lower to Upper. Nice view on the way up as well!
