Strossmayerovo šetalište 16-99, 10000, Zagreb, Croazia

Strossmayerovo Šetalište (Strossmayer Promenade) This romantic footpath offers some of the finest views over Zagreb. The 19th-century promenade was built when the old town walls were torn down, and now allows views of the lower town below as well as the Sava River beyond. Old-fashioned gas lamps illuminate the cafes and the trees shadow the benches. Look out for the sculpture of Croatian modernist poet Antun Gustav Matos, whose silver figure by Ivan Kožari? reclines nonchalantly on a bench. The most amusing way to reach it is by funicular (from Tomi?eva, just off Ilica), although it is also quite feasible to walk up.
