    I find it not so exceptional that. You can swim but hey there are pebbles and relax better is to plan a small inflatable mattress. Otherwise there is also tracks cycling is pretty cool. The Lake is located a bit far from the Center.

    Great place to chill after a hard day. Lots of places to buy a drink and a few aces to eat. You can swimm in the lake which is full of ducks and swans at dusk. Definitly a place to take your family on a nice walk

    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.

    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 :)

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.
