Zrinjevac, Zagreb
(4.7/5 based on 300+ 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.

  • Designed by engineer Milan Lenuci, the square was once a place of pasture for livestock and today represents the Zagreb "green", a luxurious space with the plane trees imported from Trieste, the music Pavilion, fountains and busts of prominent figures. It is the first of a series of 8 squares designed by Lenuci called "Horseshoe", is just the beginning of the walk in the lower town and there is the oldest fountain in Zagreb, designed by Hermann Bollé.

  • Nice park in the middle of the town. If its sunny & worm you can sit there and enjoy. Sometime there are some local happening that gives an extra value. 
  • OK for a short walk great pity that you can not have a drink when there are no holidays. A small park in the city center, with benches. There is no toilet nor restaurants.
