Zagreb's tourist bus

  Public Transport

When you get to Zagreb, you'll find it an easy city to explore because of its efficient system of trams and buses to whisk you around town. Trams are especially useful as they are frequent and cover large swaths of the city. While easy and cheap, it helps to familiarize yourself with the maps, routes and pricing system before heading out. Read more.

Car

A car is not strictly necessary to visit Zagreb but certainly essential for exploring the Zagreb region. More about parking, car rental, practicalities.

Taxi

The good news is that there are a lot of taxis in Zagreb and several companies compete to keep prices down. Even with the excellent public transportation system, it's nice to know that an affordable taxi is within reach. Read more.

Tourist Train

This is a great way to get an overview of Zagreb's Lower Town at a very nominal cost but it only runs on weekends. Read more.

Tourist Buses

Although certainly pricier than public transport, for a quick overview of Zagreb's layout, you can't do better than taking one of these sightseeing buses. They are hop-on buses so you can explore each neighbourhood before going on to the next and they cover both Upper and Lower Zagreb. The buses only work from May to September though. Read more.

Bicycle

With a relatively flat terrain (at least in the Lower Town) and the construction of a network of bike lanes, Zagreb has become increasingly pleasurable to explore by bike. Read more.

Walking

The best way to discover any great city is to walk its streets, avenues, squares, alleys and boulevards. The central nugget of Zagreb's flat Lower Town is pedestrian only and most of the narrow streets of Zagreb's hilly Upper Town are also closed to cars.
