  • For a foreign tourist this makes a great destination for a day trip and an opportunity to figure out the tram. We spent half a day here relaxing and cooling off in the lake. The swimming was surprisingly refreshing. The little beach bar was not too expensive and had nice cold beer.
  • Perfect place to go for basically anything... From sunbathing and relaxing to sunbathing and working out, there's nothing you can't do here
  • You don't need to go to the seaside end of this beauty in the middle of summer in Zagreb!

Where to stay in Zagreb

Lodging in Croatia's capital Zagreb maintains a high standard, with many centrally located hotels offering significant weekend discounts on their finest rooms. Hostels remain the most affordable option for budget-minded travelers visiting for a day or two, providing small but neat rooms only steps away from the city's most popular bars, clubs, and restaurants. For something a bit quieter, look for self-catering apartments and guesthouses in the city's residential neighborhoods, where you can park for free and get a good night's sleep.
