With a quick ride on the funicular, a visitor is introduced to the upper city of Zagreb. The views of the area are fantastic. A smaller, medieval part of the town, one can spend hours wandering the blocks of interest. The stone gate with the shrine to the Virgin of Zagreb is a place of quiet and devotion, the museums reflect the tone of the people, and the buildings and shops are excellent. We did not have an agenda but wanted to see what we could find. Unfortunately, many of the historic buildings are still closed due to instability from the most recent earthquake. The scaffolding, however, does not impinge on the charm. The city has some steep streets so make sure to wear good shoes and eat a hearty breakfast.

The upper town is full of charm and it is a lot of Zagreb points of interest, St. Mark Church, Stone Gate, Kaptol and Museum of Broken Relationships.

The upper town is exciting and calm at the same time. It is like a sleeping beauty offering its charms and stopping time to let you enjoy its beauty and wealth.

We visited here after taking the funicular. Lotrscak Tower is nice and has good views and the Museum of Broken Relationships is a must see. St Mark's church looked pretty from the outside but the whole area was, other than the area by the tower and museum, very empty when we visited. It is a nice set of cobbled streets and squares with 17/18th century buildings. Nice, but not a must see.

Croatia is so much more than Split and Dubrovnik. I really liked Zagreb. The upper City is full of interesting monuments, buildings and churches. It's a wonderful way of spending a few hours walking around, taking pictures and enjoying the ambience

The Upper Town of Zagreb is very pretty and very interesting. We walked both the Upper & Lower town and we also took a bike tour around Zagreb with Blue Bike Tours to learn more about the history. We took a lot of photos of the sites, unfortunately we were not able to enter several of the buildings we wanted to see due to the earthquake in 2020 (building are under renovation).

Croatia, to many of us, is a summer beach destination crowned by the jewel of Dubrovnik, and I have no quarrel with any of those pleasures. But the capital, Zagreb, is a relative jewel of Central European architecture, its old section remaining relatively intact and free of Allied bombardment during WW2. Hence you can walk around a vibrant and thrilling town for a whole day without exhausting it. There are a number of flimsy tourist traps, but many great museums on offer. The only drawback is that the Cathedral isn’t always open to tourists. Great value compared to Western Europe.

Take the funicular from the lower part of town and spend hours exploring the upper town in Zagreb. Consider taking a short walking tour to get an overview as there are lots of things that you can easily miss. But definitely spend time wandering too at your own pace.

We took funicular to this place and took a walk along the quite street. We could see the city buildings from here. And there were some interesting place to be visited as well, like City Museum, Lotrscak Tower, Museum of Broken Relationships and St. Mark's Church.

Located on a hill which provides a good view of the lower town. This area away from the hussel and bussel of the busy lower town. A nice place to wander through the maze of medieval streets around St Mark's Church and the Croatian government buildings.
