As such, the journey takes only a minute but is worth the investment. It departs every 10 minutes from 6:30 AM till 10 PM and costs only 4 HRK.

You can hop on the funicular at the northwest corner of Jelacica square. You disembark close to a number of delightful buildings and the centre of Croatian power. On St Marks square you can find the parliament, constitutional court and other government buildings. The highlight is the delightful St Marks Church which dates to the 13th century.
