  • It was the first Park in Zagreb, who visited. And then come back here often for appeasement, solitude with nature. But at the same time, there is civilization. He is handsome and in summer and autumn, in any season. Walk along the Lake jarun, and if you want you can swim or laze on the beach near the Lake, visit the Café, SIP a cup of aromatic coffee. The Lake can be specifically to come watch the competitions on sailing, rowing. In General, a good place for a family, and herself).

  • 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.
  • 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 :)
  • Beautiful lakes, nature, lots of opportunities to exercize, very peacefull place
  • Ideal place for rollerblading, street workout, running, cycling, volleyball or just having coffie or a BBQ.
