  • We jogged to and around the Maksimir Park and it was a highlight of our visit to Zagreb. Lovely running surface and beautiful, with interesting monuments throughout. 
  • Maksimir is a beautiful, huge park, located 7 tram stations away from the main square. It's the Zagreb's equivalent of Hyde Park or Central Park. I highly recommend it if you'd like to stroll around i...  read more »
  • Maksimir Park can't really be fully appreciated in just one visit. This beautiful park consists of forests, meadows, streams, lakes (5 lakes in total), trails, bridges and various buildings and monume...  read more »
  • Great place to chill out, drink coffee, eat lunch (picnic or at the park's restaurant) or take nice long walks through the forest or by the small lakes. Good for joggers, cyclists, also child and dog friendly. Offers lake rowing. The ZOO is located in the Maksimir Park.
  • Despite several visits, I have only seen a small part of the park. It is massive!! It is a beautiful green space in the heart of the city, full of lakes, a zoo, lots of quiet areas and playgrounds for children. There is a restaurant near the main entrance by the sports ground. I love to run here early mornings, it is a beautiful place to run. A must visit place on your stay in Zagreb.
  • Beautiful park that also has a nice zoo with variety of species. There is a plenty of space where you can organise a picnic, play badminton, throw friabee or just enjoy the sun. It offers perfect relaxation from busy street, just step in and you'll be in another world. As part of park there are also three or four lakes wich could be cleaner but I don't want to be picky.
  • One of the most beautiful parks in Europe. It is absolutely massive, full of little paths, ponds, lakes, meadows and playgrounds for kids, as well as late 19th - early 20th century buildings. It is also a home to the city zoo.
  • Lovely Park to go for a walk in. Public oblution facilities and water fountains to be increased or upgraded. Would make for a fantastic place!
