Zagreb Cable Car History

Fans of the most famous mountain in Zagreb have been waiting for the new Sljeme Cable Car since 2007 after the old one stopped working. The reason for that was a malfunction on the engine, after which it was concluded that it was better to start building a new one than to repair the old Cable Car.

The Cable Car started operating in 1963 for the purpose of transporting athletes and mountaineers.

The old Zagreb Cable Car had a shorter route – 4000 meters. The route was one of the longest in Europe. It is interesting to note that the ride lasted about 20 minutes.
