    Up the hill...

    Medvednica is quite easily accessible & it's a great one-day escape from the city. Getting there might be a bit tougher, but it's definitely worth it!

    Take the tram no. 14 from the Main Square (trg bana J. Jelacica) to the last stop Mihaljevac, then no. 15 to Dolje & walk a bit through the tunnel which leads you to the cable car. It's gonna take almost to the top of the mountain [the actual highest point is just a short walk away], so enjoy the view of the city during the ride.

    The cable car has been running since 1963 & it's a kind of a trademark in Zagreb. Unfortunately, the site is in Croatian only, but you can at least check out some of it. :) It drives every day from 08.00 till 20.30, the drive lasts 23 minutes & the cabins take 4 persons. A one-way ticket costs 11 HRK & a return ticket costs 17 HRK.

    I've read in the newspapers that they're planning to build a whole new system, with bigger glass cable cars! Since there are more & more people going up there, there is definitely a need for better solutions!

    If you're a bear...

    It's a bit harder to get to Medvedgrad, an old fortificational complex the governmental people like to call 'The altar of the Homeland'. It's located in the far west corner of Medvednica [you can see something like a smaller city glowing up there during the night], so the best & the easiest way to get there would be a car, but if you're up for a longer walk, go ahead - you'll get an even better view from there! Oh, and try to get a hand of some binoculars while you're at it... ;)
