September the 22nd, 2020 – When it comes to attractions on offer in the bustling Croatian capital, there’s no shortage of things to do. For those of us who live in the city, being in the midst of it all and yet also being surrounded by nature provides an ideal balance. Sljeme, which towers above the city, offers everything from hiking opportunities to skiing in the winter. The Sljeme cable car will be yet another addition under Zagreb’s belt.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 21st of September, 2020, the much anticipated Sljeme cable car is in its final phases of construction, with the new  ‘Sljeme Cable Car’ sign now having being placed at what will more than likely become an extremely popular site for both locals and visitors.

Let us remind you that the Sljeme cable car will be five kilometres long, it will have 84 cabins which will boast ten seats each. 1500 passengers will be able to be transported in one hour, and the ride to the upper station should take 16 minutes, at a speed of 20 km/h. The route of the new Sljeme cable car will be illuminated, covered by video surveillance and an audio system, while the cabins will be equipped with heated seats, lighting, wireless internet (Wi-Fi) and the preparation of installations for video surveillance.

The lower station building will be equipped with underground garages on two floors, with more than 200 parking spaces. The price of the Sljeme cable car in total stands at a massive 535 million kuna, and the price of one ride for citizens will be around 50 kuna. The first rides for citizens are expected from November the 1st, 2020.
