  • Good place to relax however please allow sandals and a foldable Chair because there are a lot of rolls as for the sea of Tréport. I recommend for the beautiful view of the Lake!

  • You can just walk, run, rent a bike and ride, or take drink sit on some bar terace and enjoy in nature. On weekend many people take positions (it is FREE) and make own BBQ in nature.  more »

  • Great for outdoor sports, walking, cycling...or just enjoying the view and sipping coffee in numeruos cafes. Also, you can see ducks and swans on the shores close to cafe terraces :-)
  • 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
  • OK-ish, but crowded and often dirty
  • And after 30 years of this gem of the city of Zagreb has not lost anything in its charm. That place you simply must visit and feel the power of nature that resisted the urban devastation.
