Are you going to visit the oldest district of the capital? Take a ride there on the funicular.
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.
