  • Beautiful lake in the heart of Zagreb, famous place for recreation and relaxation. An artificial lake that is perfect for swimming. Around the lake there is a biking path, a lot of green areas where you can grill, children's playgrounds, courts for volleyball and other sports, restaurants and night clubs. All that you need for active and less active weekend and family gatherings.
  • Beautiful Lake, beautiful natur. Good cafes. There is still more potential.
  • Lake is just an amazing place to hang out,read books, run or even sit down and enjoy the nature, place gets crowded during the summer time.
  • I especially liked the official nudist beach in the south of the park, the welcoming of campervans and the tranquillity of the park in general, but I was here on an off season weekday. Only 5 Kuna (70 cents) for entry by car :)
  • Excellent and mind relaxing place. There is a lot activities options: cycling, roller skating, swimming, grilling, volleyball, jogging etc. There are restaurants and cafes.
