“Chose to bypass and took the stairs”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

The treat is the view from the top. No idea how much it was or if it was worth it. Very short. However, there are stairs around the side and you can take them up or down. The view from the top is very nice and a favorite for wedding photos. At least 3 couples were having their shots taken there.

“Short ride but great view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2012

More of a novelty than real transportation, the funicular covers a very short distance up a steep hill from one of the main streets downtown to the upper old town. Kids love it.

“Mainly a historical value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

Older than a horse street car in Zagreb (1890.) you should travel by it at least once on your visit. The contrast from the busy lower part of the city and the upper part is quite noticeable and fascinating for such a short distance. One more detail: there has never been an accident in its operating life and as such is the most secure way of travel.

“the shortest funicular ride in the world”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

If you have never ridden a funicular, if you are with kids, if it is raining, if you absolutely loathe climbing a short flight of stairs do it! Nice view!

“It is running again!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

If doing a lot of stairs is not your thing or never rode a funicular, this is your ride. It is short but goes up steep hill to upper town. 5 kuna is about $1 US. Nice view as you ride up or down.
