Zrinjevac, Zagreb

(4.7/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
A verdant spot near the heart of Zagreb, Zrinjevac forms a key part in the city's network of parks popularly known as the "Green Horseshoe." Named after Nikola Zrinski, a local nobleman who won a series of battles against the Ottomans in 1556, the park features several landscaped gardens that provide a tranquil respite from the noise and commotion of the city. Shaded walkways lined by plane trees draw walkers and joggers, while impeccable lawns dotted with bubbling fountains serve picnickers seeking a quiet place near the city center. A standout among monumental buildings surrounding the park, the city's archaeological museum holds a major collection of prehistoric artifacts.

  • I visited this park during Christmas time and I guarantee you that is the best time to visit Zagreb! The park is wonderful itself, but with all the decorations, Christmas market and atmosphere, it fee...  more »
  • I have to go here at least once every time I'm in Zagreb. Even though it's not very big, there's something special about it.  more »
  • The park covers about 3 blocks and is suitable for various activities: running, walking, children's playground, picnic, place you spin for dogs. It is all very nice and tidy, ideal for those who want to enjoy the greenery in the city centre, is also accessible with dogs but be careful where you walk because in some places (very few for luck) is a receptacle for excrement that some owners don't collect. Either way it's a must see.

  • Lovely park situated in the very heart of Zagreb offers great escape from the city buzz. It is beautifull in every season. Home of famous Zagreb advent and many other festivals, such as Sweets Festival, Jazz Jestival, C'est the Best, etc. All the trees on Zrinjevac are sycamors, some of them older than 120 years. In spring and summer tourists stretch blankets and sit around the fountain which, and students come there to gather and have fun. Fall is especially beautifull and colorefull. There are concerts held in the pavilion every weekend during spring and summer. In Advent time in winter it all smells of mulled wine, fritters and sausages. Zrinjevac is a must see for every tourist who visits Zagreb! You can even find a "kissing bank", where you can sit, kiss, and take a selfie.
