Best way to get up to the old town after a long walk down the upper town. The ride is short and saves quite a bit of walking. The funicular railway is well maintained.

This was interesting and we got there by taking a walking tour. It's been around forever and it's possible it's the shortest funicular in the world. There are many ways to get there, walking, climbing stairs or taking it up from the bottom. It takes...More

This is the shortest Funicular in the world so you don't need to spend the 4 Kunas to ride it if you prefer to walk. The view at the top is photo worthy so do visit if you have the time while visiting Zagreb.

Like all tourist locations, it is definitely a tick mark to be done :). Makes you feel like a child. Do go on a ride!

OK, i'm exaggerating a bit. For a few bucks it's worth riding it up. How many people can say they've ridden the shortest funicular in all of Europe? Also, it puts you right up on the Strossmayer Promenade which is a nice perfect for the...More
