star-5
134 Reviews
Upper Town (Gornji Grad)
With narrow cobblestone streets, red tiled roofs, and gorgeous medieval squares,  Upper Town (Gornji Grad) is Zagreb’s historic district and most picturesque part. Many of the city’s most visited tourist attractions are here, including the Stone Gate, Zagreb Cathedral, and the Bloody Bridge. 

The Basics
Situated on a hilltop overlooking the city, Upper Town is best explored on foot. Take a guided walking tour of the centuries-old streets to learn about Zagreb’s medieval history and hear the stories behind the famous Bloody Bridge and the Stone Gate. Don’t miss a visit to St. Mark’s Church, easily recognized by its colorful tiled roof depicting the Croatian, Dalmatian, and Slavonian coats of arms and the Zagreb city emblem.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Upper Town is a must-see for first-time visitors to the city.
  • Wear comfortable walking shoes, as Upper Town’s streets are cobbled and can be uneven.
  • If traveling with kids, a ride on the Zagreb Funicular is a must.
  • For a unique experience, visit the Museum of Broken Relationships.

How to Get There
There are several ways to get to Upper Town. The most fun way is to take a ride on the Zagreb Funicular, a cobalt-blue cog railway that whisks travelers up the hill from Lower Town (Donji Grad) in just over a minute. You can also take a bus, tram, or taxi or walk to Upper Town from lower Zagreb. 

When to Get There
Upper Town can be visited year-round. Summer, with pleasant and reliable weather and street festivals and activities galore, is by far the most popular time to visit. Zagreb is also fantastic to visit in winter and boasts one of the best Advent scenes in Europe. With winter markets, festivals, and millions of twinkling lights, the capital in an unforgettable place to spend the holiday season. 

The Grič Cannon
Among Zagreb’s unique traditions is the Grič Cannon, which is fired each day at noon from the Lotrščak Tower near the top of the funicular. For a small admission, you can climb to the top of the tower and enjoy one of the best views in the city.

Zagreb tour with full renovated Fićo

Zagreb tour with full renovated Fićo

This exclusive tourist tour enables you to enjoy a private pursuit for Zagreb's past. And what is so special? You will experience this, no more or no less, in the most popular oldtimer in this area – Fićek! Fićo is actually the glorious Zastava 750, a car from the '60s. It was originally designed per Italian Fiat. One interesting fact is that the German VW Buba had an influence on Fićo's appearance too. Fićo was until the '80s for Yugoslavia the same as the Trabant for DDR, Spaček for France or Mini Morris for Britain in the '60s. All public services were driving Fićo, while the older generations tried out their first driving experience right in this car. It was the car that helped boys to court girls, the car in which you had your first kiss, and the car that took you fishing or at the sea.
