  • A nice large wooded area in the city. A 10 minutes tram ride (no.11 or 12) from the main square. The walk was pleasant and relaxing. Free to go in. It did give me a feeling of a English woodland.
  • Park Maksimir is beautiful large park with several lake and lots of places to go and take a walk, running or playing some other sports. Otherwise you can also visit a large zoo in nearby or take a coffe in two specific caffe. Maksimir is place where everyone can find his peaceful corner or have some fun with his family or friends 😄
  • Big green area, close to the center and jet once you go inside you have a feeling like you're in a big forest. It also has a lake where you can see a lot of turtles sunbathing in the sun if you come at the right time, and as always feed ducks. Its great for walking, exercising, driving a bicycle or relaxation and picnic with family and friends. And a bonus to all of that there is a nice restaurant just near the main entrance.
  • Best recreation spot after Jarun and Bundek in Zagreb. It also includes a Zoo with a lot of educational programs. A must place to take a walk, bike or run.
  • 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.
