The lower town of Zagreb is commonly called the city center by the locals. It is located under the upper town which is on the hill.
The lower town encompasses from around Ban Josip square down to the Zagreb main train station. This is just a general idea for us tourists. You would need to look at actual maps for this as I think Zagreb is made up of 17 districts.
This has a lot to see in it. There are some good tourist maps available which show you what there is to see in this area. All up, i think you only need a day and a half to see both the lower and upper town sites and can comfortable cover most of the top items in this timeframe.

We spent time walking and also on a bike tour around the Lower Town in Zagreb. This part of the city is newer than the Upper Town and, in addition the main Jelacic Square, has lots of green spaces, parks, and Art Deco/19th century types of buildings. We found it very pretty and relaxing to spend time in, spending more time outdoors without really entering any of the buildings.

Lower Town is Zagreb’s busy city centre encompassing Ban Josip Jelačić Square and the area around it. Contrasting the narrow and cobbled streets of Upper Town, the streets here are modern and the area contains many of the city’s museums, parks, cafes and classy shops. Definitely worth visiting this area when in Zagreb

Currently enjoying a great time in this vibrant city of Zagreb ,the neighbourhood known as Lower Town is really interesting ,it's basically the city centre by and as my twin brother Stephen are staying in Hotel Central by Zagreb Railway Station we are more or less smack bang in the heart of the Lower Town.
Whereas as the Upper Town is famous for it's narrow cobblestoned streets ,the Lower Town ( Donji Grad ) has wide streets ,the influence of the Austro - Hungarian Empire is clearly on view with the impressive looking grand building that proliferate this district ,in this district are lots of museums and some great parks ,lots of statues and monuments and an extraordinary amount of cafe,bars,pubs and restaurants ,it's most definitely a district to check out if you're planning a holiday to this vibrant city

King Tomislav Square is really beautiful for a walk. There is a fountain in the middle of the park. I think the place is very romantic for a walk with a partner.

Start from the main railway station and walk past the large park continue until you reach the main square, where the tram lines converge It’s mostly flat until the base of the old town. No need to use the trams as the city is small and the main sights are close enough to walk to.

In my opinion, this is the nicer part of the city, with classical buildings slightly reminiscent of Vienna. There is a lot to see here, although most of the museum is currently still closed due to the big earthquake of 2020

Once you are in Croatia, the Lower Town is a must. Our guide told us the town was laid out in the 1800s. It is astonishing that the avenues are wide with grand classical buildings. We visited museums and the shopping centre here are quite expensive

This is a buzzy part of the city, with numerous pedestrian, alleyways, it is very walkable, the square ban Josip Jelacic, is very popular with locals as a meeting place, another lovely place is the park, Zrinjevac, which runs down the middle of the city to the historic railway station.

Donji Grad part of town is now considered as a center of business, shopping, at, museums and spacious green park.

The elegant Viennese influences is visible in Lower Town. Take a walk through the city's streets and notice the magnificent Austro-Hungarian buildings, facades in secession style that embellished the city in the early 20th century.
