Funicular for Upper City (Gornji Grad) is the oldest transportation system of organized public transit system in Zagreb.The funicular was built in 1890 and has been in operation since April 23, 1893. It is one year older than a horse-drawn tram. In comparison to other funicular railways intended for public transport, Zagreb’s 66 meter long funicular is the shortest in the world. Although its participation in public transport is minor, its dimensions (two cars) and spatiality make it a significant transportation vehicle. It passes 4000 kilometers a year and carries around 750.000 passengers. In more than one century of its existence there was not a single accident, injured passenger, and therefore it is called by far the safest public transport system, not only in Croatia but also broad wide. Since it kept its original appearance and construction, and most of the technical characteristics, the Zagreb funicular is legally protected as a cultural monument.
