It quirky, quick (55 seconds) but saves a big climb up to the upper town. This sweet little funicular costs very little, and runs every 10 minutes, in theory up to 10 pm. although they tend to wind up soon after 9:30. Worth using to...More

Apparently the shortest funicular in the world, or one of the shortest in any case, and although it is a short ride, if you are walking around Zagreb, it's a fun way to go up or down. Apparently a staple of the centre for years,...More

We did not use it, but passed by it to go from upper town to lower town. The stairs next to it are very romantic.

A good way to get to the top of the hill. The wait was short, and the trip was comfortable even though the car was full. A decent view at the top. Beats walking.

Very infrequent service.One way tickets only. This train, nevertheless, could save you a very steep long climb.

Like the funicular railway at Montmartre in Paris, it's really a pleasure to jump in and get at the top in about 2 minutes.

It is not a spectacular ride and it takes only a minute, but is such a charming old-fashioned way to go to the upper town. The ride costs only 5 Kuna one-way

A great way to reach the upper city, quick and efficient. It runs at night if you chose to dine up there with some good ones to choose from. Also to explore then walk down through the forest.
