  • Jarun is great for walking, jogging, cycling etc. especially at sunset and in the mornings. Quite busy on weekends. In the summer the beaches are full, the water clean and regularly checked in line wi...  more »
  • great place for peaceful walking (or jogging),any time you need some open space in the big city. lot of activities, great to spend some time with kids. very good restaurants and bars 
  • Semiartficiale basin formed by the River Sava, Jarun is a bit of the sea that in Zagreb is missing that element surrogate that dissolves an important gap. On the outskirts to the Southwest, the Lake lends itself to many uses, calm and clean, you can go all the way around when walking or running, there are several areas equipped for sports largely free, many picnic tables. Nearby a variety of premises including the famous Aquarius where were resumed important live from local singers, is also home to a major summer festival. The Lake has a swimming part and also the beaches. Winter is a lady in the picture and walks. In short, the Croats there can do, and exploit them intelligently.

  • 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.
