Use the Funicular to reach it - the view of the town is spectacular! The small streets brings you back to the Middle ages - romantic walk ;) See also Porta di Pietra (Kamenita Vrata). And do not miss the museums!

Zagreb is definitely a good place for a modeller length stay. City is safe, friendly with hospitable people so much different from other European capitals. Go there also i December to see award winning decorations.

It was hard for me to understand why is this place so popular before we went there during Zagreb Advent festivities. Culture, old town centre, walks, ppl,....must go!

This a great place to start your tour of Zagreb because of the great views from the top of the hill. Take the railway up and then walk downhill to see the rest of the sites, buildings and museums.

You can spend an hour here or a lifetime. Or anything in between. We kept coming back because we had one more thing we wanted to see, one more little bistro that we wanted to try, another coffee shop that we wanted to test...which led to more things we wanted to see, taste and test...and after 5 days we still...

Definitely worth going to upper town quieter up there the views are really good and the square with the church is nice too. Not so keen on the museum of broken relationships I would not bother going there again! We went up by the funicular car and strolled down which was really pleasant and very interesting
