  • Funicular railway

    A fun journey of 66 metres
    Travelling on the oldest means of public transport in Zagreb is an experience. The funicular was constructed in 1890 and has been taking passengers from the Lower Town to the Upper Town since 1893. It takes 55 seconds to travel what is probably the shortest funicular track in the world, from the pedestrian zone up to the Strossmayer Promenade.

  • Zagreb Cathedral

    Imposing Gothic works
    Zagreb Cathedral is an impressive architectural achievement. It is the most imposing, neo-Gothic style sacred building in Croatia – with room inside for 5,000 people. It is dominated by two towers, extending 108 metres up into the sky from the centre of the mediaeval fortress. The western part has been destroyed, the archbishop's palace is on the south and west side, fortress ruins lie to the north and Kaptol Square extends to the south.

  • Metrovi Pavilion

    The home of artists
    In 1938, the world-famous Croatian sculptor Ivan Meštrovi created a unique rotunda. The avant-garde project of its time became the precursor to well-known buildings of world architecture – including the Guggenheim Museum in New York. Today the Metrovi Pavilion is home to the Croatian Association of Visual Arts. More than 40 exhibitions and events are organised every year in the building's three large rooms.

  • Mirogoj cemetary

    Peace of mind in a magnificent setting
    With its archways, domes and grassy areas, it is considered one of the loveliest cemeteries in Europe. In 1876, the Cologne architect Hermann Bollè constructed this 7-hectare resting place where the mortal remains of more than 300,000 souls lie. You can discover the names of many well-known Croatians on the splendidly carved tombs. Many works by famous sculptors and artists are also on view. Which gives the park its popular name of the «open-air museum».

    The green horseshoe
    A complex of seven parks surrounds the Lower Town of Zagreb.

  • The Zagreb mummy

    Unique linen bandages
    In the mid-nineteenth century, this female mummy made the journey from Egypt to Vienna and then to Zagreb. The archeological exhibit is famous for her extraordinary linen bandages: this once 3.40-metre-
    long strip of material bears the longest Etruscan inscription in the world and is known as the Zagreb Linen Book. The mummy lies in the Archeological Museum, and is seen every year by enthusiastic visitors from all over the world.

    Culture of international repute
    Some of the most eminent Croatian and internationally known artists appear in this theatre. You can enjoy plays, operas, concerts and ballet performances in this grand building right in the middle of Tito Square in the Lower Town. The building is actually a carbon copy.
