Since I grew up in that forest and get to know almost every pathway in it, I can only say it has everything you search from nature. It has lakes, animals (Zagreb ZOO is in it), ducks and swans, other people who love to walk in peace, and beautiful big parks for children. Probably the most Zen part of the... More

A relaxed place 10 minutes by tram from the city centre. There are walking trails and a good zoo. Or relax somewhere and watch people. A nice escape from the city.

one of my favorite places in ZG. it is usually crowded during weekends, especially around the entrance area, but not so much in the inner parts of the park. if the weather allows - go for a hike / jog around the numerous trails around the park. if you ride a bike or you are in a very good shape...

The park is right inside the city making it a perfect place to "Escape from it all", take a break from office for a quite walk or a relaxed lunch or even picnic.

When I come to Zagreb I always stay in Maksimir area. It is a huge green space very near the city center. You can reach it by public transportation in a 10-15 minutes from the main square. The park is a combination of forest and five lakes. Some parts are very cultivated but you can also find some great wild... More

I went for a walk around the park on my first day in Zagreb, it was absolutely stunning as all the snow had settled and started to melt. The ponds and lakes were frozen over and it was just so peaceful! I lovely, relaxing way to spend the morning!

Green oasis near city center (5 min with cab or 10 with tram). A lot of walking area filled with green, 2-3 open area bars and ZOO inside.

I'm not sure in which season this park is the most beautiful. I like to go there on my bike or just walk through the park. You can go there alone to get away from all the noise or with someone. It is perfect for all kind of activities, you can exercise or just lay down on your blanket and... More

Visited on a snowy day in January so unfortunately did not make it around the entire park (very icy!) but I spent about an hour and a half there and the parts I did see were beautiful. The lakes are lovely, with plenty of ducks. Additionally, it's very easy to get to - from the central square (Jelačic) you can... More
