Have visited a lot of old town areas in the Europe, however Zagreb old town is by far my favorite. Granted - we were lucky that there were hardly any other tourists to "spoil" the view of the beautiful old buildings and make our stroll in this area very pleasant, however even if crowded this place is worth a visit.

As a native Zagrebian I dare to say Gornji Grad is my favorite place to roam around. The buildings, the courtyards, the promenade, Lotrscak tower, Museum of Broken Relationships... I just love walking there and getting lost in the history.

My very favorite part of the city, ancient, cultural and full of various attractions. Walk along its streets, visit the Broken relationships museum, Lotrščak is also a must.

Plan your trip to avoid the many steps that get you up to the Old Town. The funicular helps! Once there, the streets are filled with history --- churches, museums (don't miss Naive Art), fountains, hidden archways, and places to overlook Zagreb. (Try the restaurant near the funicular for a view of the city...)
