Gornji Grad (Upper Town) Tours

110 Reviews
With narrow cobblestone streets, red tiled roofs, and gorgeous medieval squares, Gornji Grad (Upper Town) is Zagreb’s historic district and most picturesque part. Many of the city’s most visited tourist attractions are here, including the Stone Gate, Zagreb Cathedral, and the Bloody Bridge. 

The Basics
Situated on a hilltop overlooking the city, Gornji Grad is best explored on foot. Take a guided walking tour of the centuries-old streets to learn about Zagreb’s medieval history and hear the stories behind the famous Bloody Bridge and the Stone Gate. Don’t miss a visit to St. Mark’s Church, easily recognized by its colorful tiled roof depicting the Croatian, Dalmatian, and Slavonian coats of arms and the Zagreb city emblem.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Gornji Grad is a must-see for first-time visitors to the city.
  • Wear comfortable walking shoes, as Gornji Grad’s streets are cobbled and can be uneven.
  • If traveling with kids, a ride on the Zagreb Funicular is a must.
  • For a unique experience, visit the Museum of Broken Relationships.

How to Get There
There are several ways to get to Gornji Grad. The most fun way is to take a ride on the Zagreb Funicular, a cobalt-blue cog railway that whisks travelers up the hill from Donji Grad (Lower Town) in just over a minute. You can also take a bus, tram, or taxi or walk to Gornji Grad from lower Zagreb. 

When to Get There
Gornji Grad can be visited year-round. Summer, with pleasant and reliable weather and street festivals and activities galore, is by far the most popular time to visit. Zagreb is also fantastic to visit in winter and boasts one of the best Advent scenes in Europe. With winter markets, festivals, and millions of twinkling lights, the capital in an unforgettable place to spend the holiday season. 

The Grič Cannon
Among Zagreb’s unique traditions is the Grič Cannon, which is fired each day at noon from the Lotrščak Tower near the top of the funicular. For a small admission, you can climb to the top of the tower and enjoy one of the best views in the city.
