I have trouble giving which one to give, either average or very good. Zagreb is one of the cities that I have trouble with. I gave average for lower part of town, but soon I regretted because I felt I was not generous to the city. But then again, this city is not like Vienna that I would give 'very... More

Delightful to walk around in the daytime but better at night when most tourists are in the bars down the hill.

The upper town of Zageb is very nice. It is however, alot less substantial in size and in sights as other european capitals. Dont expect it to be like Vienna or Paris for example. Many beautiful buildings but many more in a state of disrepair. All in all a fun day roaming the streets.

This is the older part of town and you can either walk up or take the funicular. Interesting houses, cobbled streets and winding alleys welcome you and a walk down restaurant filled sloped streets is very interesting.

The most delightful part of Zagreb, the upper town is very easily reached on foot as the gentle, sloping cobbled streets are very easy to climb on foot. Once you've reached the old town area, you'll find lots of interesting housing, narrow streets, churches and museums and galleries. As you wind back down again to the lower town, you'll find...

The City of Zagreb is 'split' into an Upper and Lower town although as you stroll through, you cannot tell the difference. There are wonderful old buildings mainly in the Upper Town (Old part) with great architecture and walks including the pedestrianised streets full of shops, restaurants and bars

This part of the old town is charming. Lots of old buildings, cafes, shops and cathedrals. You can walk up or take the funicular. A must visit if you are in Zagreb. Just a short walk from the town square.
