There are many paths that lead from Zagreb Downtown to the Upper Town, the most famous of which is assuredly Stone Gate (if you are in for a walk) and the funicular (if you don’t feel like walking). My favorite path, however, is a path less traveled, the Bartol Felbinger stairs. It connects the Radićeva street and the vivacious, boisterous Tkalčićeva street.
The stairs are not very steep, but there’s quite a lot of them, so it’s a good workout. It also gives you a great view over Tkalčićeva street, but it is much quieter and devoid of big tourist groups. Also, on the right side of the stairs (looking from Tkalčićeva) one can see the last remnants of the Upper Town’s vineyards. On the left side, you can see old houses, some dating from the Middle Ages, some renovated.
I like this path because it’s never as crowded as the more prominent ones, and it also has such an enjoyable view. It is also a very quiet and romantic spot for those in love.
