    A large green spot in Zagreb. this i the place where the zoological garden is also situated and in the past maintained one or two bears inside a cage. the park is wide and nice to walk and relax.  more »

    Depending on which part of the Park you roam, you will find a real forest, or rather a styled Park. In the upper part, it can be siphoned cycling and jogging, below you can visit the Zoo or stroll. Just before dogs we should not be afraid, for which there are very many. But turtles in the pond. Beautiful green oasis not far from the Centre.

    After a busy day exploring the city, the Park is a great place to get some rest. We visited a large portion of the Park is quite large, but from what we have seen is a very well maintained, there are clearly defined avenues and equipped with many sessions (always nice is still grabbing a towel and lie down on the ground!) The Park can be reached comfortably by car transport, car parks are comfortable and close although payment (low prices).

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.
