The basics

Completed in 1959, the Zagreb Skyscraper is a somewhat utilitarian high rise that was nevertheless the tallest and most modern building in former Yugoslavia for many years. It was closed in 1989 at the start of the Balkan Wars and did not permanently reopen until 2013. Today, it’s a popular spot for locals and tourists alike to take photos of Zagreb’s twin-spired cathedral, Ban Jelačić Square, and the Moslavačko hills beyond. Information boards point out the various landmarks in the distance. Refreshments and occasional live music are available in a smart, dusky-blue bar and cafe, including morning coffee or cocktails to accompany nightfall over the city.

The Best Views in Zagreb

While the Zagreb 360 Observation Deck is the city’s highest viewpoint, there are other ways to get a panoramic perspective of the Croatian capital. Climb to the top of Lotrščak Tower for true 360-degree views over the old town, or stroll along the old defensive walls on the Strossmayer Promenade for an above-ground view of the cathedral. Outside city limits, the view from Medvedgrad Castle atop Medvednica Mountain captures the entire city from a distance.
