The only funicular in
The funicular was built in 1890 and has been in operation since April 23, 1893. It has two cars for 28 passengers each. It runs on 1200 mm gauge rails, track length is only 66 m, but height difference is 30.5 m and inclination 52%. This makes it one of the shortest, but also one of the steepest funiculars in the world. It runs at a speed of 1.5 m/s, needing 1 minute to complete the trip.

The gondola lift towards Sljeme on
The current gondola lift was in operation from 1963-07-27 to 2007-06-30, when it officially ceased to operate.
Though, there are plans to thoroughly rebuild the entire gondola lift system. Modernisation would include bigger cars, speed improvement, higher wind resistance and about 1030 m longer route - 130 m towards north until the peak of the mountain, and 900 m towards south down to the Dolje tram terminal. Construction might begin soon.
