It's still the center of government, but for all the official buildings there are plenty of old Boroque palaces to please the eye. And a surprising number of small parks. Worth taking a day to see it well, though could also be covered in a quick half-day if you're in a rush.

Great way to have a pleasant walk, nice views and also you can visit a few museum in this area. You can take a local "special" tram to get there.

The Upper Town or Gornji Grad is one of the prime tourist areas of the city with several historical sites including the city cathedral and St. Mark's Church. It is a pedestrian area and has many popular cafes and restaurants. Nice views from the top of the hill too!

Upper Town is the oldest and most important part of Zagreb. Each visitor of Zagreb should be separated for half a day tour of the Diyala town and especially the museum

Good walking area with old buildings and some old buildings (parliament, government, supreme court, church). It is little upper walk but for sure worth it (lift is available if you dont like to walk)

If in Zagreb you should definitely visit the upper town... The historical surroundings are so beautiful and the atmosphere is so calm and relaxing. Take a few minutes, sit on a bench and just look at the city under...
