The funicular

The city center of Zagreb is divided into a lower town (with the railway station and the “green horseshoe”) and an upper town including two twin cities: the clerical town Kaptol in which you’ll find the market place (Dolac) and the cathedral – and the town of the citizens (Gradec), which includes the parliament, the seat of government and the Lotršcak tower.

Reaching Kaptol is quite easy by crossing the Ban and the Dolac. If you want to go to Gradec you have to take one of the many steep staircases – or the funicular Uspinjača. It dates back to the year 1889 (and looks somehow like that) and was built by an Austrian company. The normal public transport ticket is valid here.
