Medvednica, Zagreb

(4.7/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
Get away from busy Zagreb by exploring Medvednica, just a short drive north of the city center. In addition to a major ski resort known for hosting past championship slalom races, the mountain features a series of marked hiking trails popular with adventure seekers and nature lovers. With the majority of its area designated as a protected nature park, most of the mountain remains covered by thick beech forests. Sljeme, the tallest peak, rises to about 1,030 m (3,400 ft) and offers panoramic views of Zagreb. Hike to the top, or explore the longest cave in northern Croatia. Put Medvednica and other Zagreb attractions into our Zagreb trip itinerary builder, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Erasmus in zagreb for the year, we were fortunate to have a few weeks of snow and so pleased to be able to ski in 45 minutes from home! Small field, but for the really enough day, prices are very reasonable 50 kunas for equipment (€6) and 60kunas ski pass. I recommend
