I went there by mistake, we were lost on the streets of Zagreb and decided to enter and check the place! It's a beautiful park, good to walk and relax. There is a zoo inside, but I didn't try.

Very serene park in the heart of Zagreb that is trying to preserve some of the native plant and life species that have started to die out. Lovely walkways and sitting spot makes this a nice leisurely quite area to reflect.
