The 66-metre-long funicular that connects the Upper and Lower Town is the shortest passenger cable railway in the world. The height difference between top and bottom is 30.5 meters and the funicular takes 55 seconds to make the journey. 28 grownups can ride in it at one time and it goes up every ten minutes. Opened for passengers in 1890, when it was powered by steam, the funicular was the first ever means of public transport to be used in Zagreb, pre-dating horsedrawn trams by a whole year.
