Zagreb Funicular (Zagrebačka uspinjača)
Why You'll Love It
Zagreb’s funicular, said to be the shortest funicular in the world at 66 meters (216.5 feet), is also Zagreb’s oldest form of public transport. The nineteenth-century funicular the cutest thing, and you simply have to ride it at least once up the steep hill to Upper Town.
You get a lovely view of Zagreb as you ride up, as well. I stayed in Upper Town, and when I felt lazy or had lots of groceries, I would opt to ride the funicular instead of trudging up the hill, so it does serve a practical purpose. But mostly, it’s just cute.
Know Before You Go
This remains part of Zagreb’s public transportation network. I only ever saw people buy tickets with cash, so have some on hand.
