Zagreb FunicularGet whisked away to the Upper Town in just 64 seconds on Zagreb’s emblematic blue funicular. Connecting the Lower and Upper Town areas since 1890, the cable railway is said to be the world’s shortest for public transport. Once you reach the top, take in the sweeping views of the city, then amble along the leafy Strossmayer Promenade. The city’s first public walkway, Štros (as it’s called by locals) is lined with tall chestnut trees and benches, and hosts an outdoor event every summer called Summer on Štros.

Climbing into Zagreb's Gornji Grad
The funicular is the easiest way to get up to Zagreb's old town, also known as Gornji Grad or Grič—to see St. Mark's Church, the Museum of Broken Relationships, the Naive Art Museum, and quite a few nice restaurants. Not to mention the views—from the top of the funicular, you can see the rooftops of the city, stretching down into Novi Zagreb. It costs 4 kuna, a pittance.
