Zrinjevac, Zagreb

(4.8/5 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. Add Zrinjevac and other attractions to your Zagreb trip itinerary using our Zagreb tour planner.

  • In early December I went to Zagreb. Christmas market tour was walking, Zagreb city, just visit is divided into 20 long. Just well chosen for best Christmas market in 2016. This square stage is provided in the Central Pavilion, there are so many stations (COOP) around the cross trail, sells food and general merchandise. No heavy thick like the Germany market, white wooden shack was a light atmosphere. Also adult-like display is good. Stand seemed more for Christmas. Unable to stay busy at night time so sorry images.
