How to climb to the Gornji Grad on the funicular in Zagreb
Funicular in Zagreb is another local attraction. Although this funicular overcomes the smallest distance (in comparison with any other in Europe), only 66 meters and it is faster to get to Upper Town by any other mode of transport than to wait for the next departure (although the interval is only 10 minutes), but it still worth to ride on.

Old blue trailers running up and down the hill look very funny and its nice and interesting to ride in them, although the journey lasts no more than a minute, but after it you will find yourself on an excellent viewing platform, directly ander the foot of the Lotrščak tower, where you can admire a panoramic view of the whole city.

How to do?

1. Go to Ilitsa Street 8, here the lower departure point of the funicular is located.
2. Pay for the fare (4 kunas).
3. Wait a couple of minutes, jump into the small blue trailer and take a ride!
4. When you are at the top (approximately in a minute), be sure to rise up on the tower observation deck to appreciate the stunning view from there.
