Tram Services

During my visit to Zagreb, I used the trams everyday. They were practical and efficient. I bought a number of tickets for single journeys, these can be used on trams, trains and the funicular.

The trams were very comfortable. Please note that if you buy tickets you need to frank them in the machine near to the driver's position.

Rent a city bike

Zagreb is situated on a flat surface (except for Upper Town) and is therefore very suitable for cycling. In addition, in a city center there are marked bike paths so that cyclists do not have to drive in between vehicles. Apart from driving through the city center, a cyclists can go to Park Maksimir, where there is a Zoo and a large forest with numerous trails and several restaurants and rest areas. On the other end of the city, along the river Sava, there is a sport center and a small lake Jarun, around which are situated many restaurants and cafes. In the summer season, Jarun Lake is the largest public beach and around it there is a paved road ecliptical in shape, which is intended exclusively for cyclists and roller skaters.
In the city there are 13 sites where one can rent a bike. Next bike ( is automatic bike sharing system and more about you will find on the website. Tenant pays the credit of 79 kuna (10 euros) and the first half hour is free. Next 60 minutes cost 8 kuna (1,1 euro) and every additional 60 minutes 8 kuna. Ride longer than 5 hours, up to 24 hours cost 79 kuna.

The iconic blue trams of Zagreb are the best way to explore the city. Most things someone visiting the city would want to see are within walking distance of the city centre. But if you find yourself wanting to get out to Dinamo Stadium, the zoo, Jarun or any of the other outlying attractions this is the way to go. One ticket costs 10 kuna ($2) and is valid 90 minutes. Also available day pass for 30 kuna ($6). Route map link below..

Electric bike

Many will agree that the bike is the best tool for quick city tour, especially if visiting and staying is short. Those who prefer to pedal would rent a classic bicycle but what with those who aren't in a good physical shape and have mastered mild highs? Well, here is a proper solution, they can rent electric bike to solve the trouble, sweating and pushing the bike uphill.
"Linea Viridis" is located in Kaptol 13, about 200 meters from the Cathedral, in the very heart of Zagreb. Here you can rent electric bike, one or more of them, get a helmet and friendly tourist guide and start exploring the city with less troubles and no sweating at all. Remember, exploring city on a bike is a fun, especially if in the good company of own family, your friends or lovers. In case you will stay in Zagreb and live here for a while, you can even buy this electric bike, besides renting it is on sale too.
The one electric bike charge last for a distance of 30-40 kilometers!
The price list for renting is as follows:
- 1 hour is 30 kn or 4 euros
- 3 hours is 70 kn or 9 euros
- 6 hours is 100 kn or 13 euros
- 12 hours is 150 kn or 20 euros
- 24 hours is 250 kn or 33 euros
There are more affordable options if renting a bike for a group of 3 to 8 people for entire day or two.
Besides electric bike "Linea Viridis" offers classical bikes too.
It is good to know as well, with electric bike you can visit suburbs of Zagreb and a very pittoresque town of Samobor which is only 20 km far from Zagreb. Cycling to Samobor can be a memorable experience and there you will be able to taste the best cream pie (kremšnite) that money can buy.

Zagreb Metro

Single tickets are sold by the Zagrebački Električni Tramvaj (ZET) for 6.50KN from kiosks, and 8KN from the driver. Stamp it in the orange box behind the driver. Tickets allow you to travel for up to 90 minutes.

The trams are a mix of old and new, but they are all packed to the gills at all times of the day. The overcrowding mixed with the Croatian sense of human decency can lead to some bizarre scenes. On one journey there seemed to be some kind of dance going on ahead of me as I stood staring out of the front of the tram. It was a dance of courtesy: nobody wanted to remain sitting while someone more deserving of a seat was left standing. A boy would give up his seat for a girl, who would then give up her seat to an old man, who would then give up his seat to an old woman. With so little room for exchanging seats, the whole process was laborious, but heart warming to see that there's still such an innate sense of respect for other people in the big cities of Europe.

The Lonely Planet guide suggests that a day ticket is not worth it, given the compact nature of the city center. I call bullsh*t on that one. It costs less than three tickets for a day pass, and if you have a hotel outside the city center, like pretty much everyone visiting Zagreb will have, then you'll be needing a day pass at least some time on your visit. My hotel was fairly central, on the edge of the city center, but it took me 10-15 minutes to walk to Ban Jesanica Trg. Following Lonely Planet's advice I didn't buy a ticket for the day I planned on criss-crossing the center a number of times, and ended up buying about 6 tickets, more than double the cost of a day pass.

The ZET system also includes buses and the funicular. Single tickets purchased in the city center will take you far out into the suburbs.

Zagrebacki elektricni tramvaj

Zagrebacki tramvaj, coloquialy called ZET, is the cheapest way to explore the whole town of Zagreb. It will take from side to side of the town, suburbs included. Which ever number you take it will bring you back to the Jelacic Square.
The tickets are available in each newspapers&tobacco kiosks which can be found all over the city. The most convinient for the tourists and visitors are two kiosks lacated in the main square, both open 24 hours a day. For those who travelling by train, there are tobacco kiosks inside of the train station or outside where the tramvaj stop is.
You cannot buy the ticket in the tramvaj.

Get the tram.

One of the things I love about travelling in Eastern Europe is the trams. I can just about remember trams when I was a child visiting my grandparents in Belfast, although they are now long gone (my grandparents and the trams unfortunately). I appreciate that there is a limited new tram system in one area of London now, but for me trams will more recently always be associated with Europe and something slightly exotic and foreign.

The tram system in Zagreb I found to be efficient and clean, if a little crowded at peak times.

As well as the old "rattlers" there are a fleet of new, sleek supertrams which really are the business.

Whilst there is a very decent bus service in Zagreb, I just like the trams.

I'm afraid, I can't tell you what the fares are, as I travelled on my Zagreb Card all the time (see seperate tip). This is probably the best bet for the short-term traveller as you'll avoid any possible complications of not getting the right ticket etc. and it isn't expensive.

The attached website shows a tram system map for the city, and the photos are just some of the many I took of these wonderful vehicles.

TAXI - new companies - low prices

Good news for all those people using taxi and had bad experience in Zagreb. Taxi market is liberated and prices went down.

List of Taxi services:

Cammeo tel. 060 7100
Eko Taxi tel. 1414
Oryx Taxi tel. 1888 - not working any more
Radio Taxi Zagreb tel. 1777

F.e. from airport to center now you will pay ca. 100 kn

Boat tour of the city?

No way, am just kidding about it. This old boat is situated on the Jarun Lake where you can spend your free time when in Zagreb. There, on the lake, not far from the city centre, you can rent a boat, bycikle, rollerskates or just lie down on the beach watching extremely atracttive girls of Zagreb.

Explore Zagreb by tram

Zagreb has an extensive tram network consisting of 15 day and 4 night lines. It covers almost all interesting places of the city.

In summer 2004 single or day tickets bought from kiosks cost 6,5 Kune or 18 Kune. They were slightly more expensive when bought from the driver. All tickets have to be stamped when boarding a tram.

Explore Zagreb by Funicular Railway

Zagreb is home to a very short funicular railway (uspinjaca) which was built in 1891. It connects the Lotrscak Tower in the Upper Town with the middle of Ilica Street in the Lower Town.

Ilica Street is Zagreb's longest street starting in the city centre with shops, cafes and restaurants and leading to the western suburbs of Zagreb.

Bike city tour

Probably the best for quick exploring the city because, more or less, Zagreb is situated on the flat ground.
In spite of the fact that there are no marked bike paths in the city centre you can ride easily on the sidewalks. Don't ride too fast and watch out the foot passenger, especially the elder people.
Time for fresh updates, in the meantime most of the streets in the Donji Grad (downtown) has been marked with very visible bike-paths. There is wide network of bike-paths enabling bikers to reach very safely all the way to the Sava River and Jarun.
