Definitely a must see in Zagreb. Beautiful walk in the woods to some nice lakes that have a bunch of turtles! There are many trails that go around and they are well marked. Its very refreshing to have such a nice peaceful park in the middle of a big city!

It's the biggest park in Zagreb and also include the ZOO that you must see. It is suitable for picnic.

We came here on a hot Sunday. A big event for children was going on and it was buzzing. In the bandstand there was a delightful classic le recital from 10.30 til 12.30 which we sat and enjoyed. There is a playground for children and lots of woodland walks and lakes to explore. Away from the event it was quiet... More

Probably the most romantic place in the city. But not only that, there is also great for families with children and pets, sports, recreation, nature lovers, animal lovers (here is a Zagreb zoo).

This may not be a typical place of interest but for nature lovers with lots of time in Zagreb, it is definitely a great place to unwind, enjoying stroll along the trails and family bliss of Croatian families.

Maksimir park is founded in 1787 and is grown into beautiful, well preserved almost-like forest park. Many trails and paths are ideal for walk and for bicycles. There are several lakes, with idylic landscapes. Unfortunately, there are only two places for coffee and refreshment, so, carry drink (and food) by yourself.

This is a beautifil park with many trails around Lakes and has a lot of Wildlife to enjoy. The day my group visited was May Day and there was a crowded left wing demonstration going on. It was more a Folk Day with Marching Bands, Traditional Bands and dancing. Loads of opportunity to try local Food & Beer. The park... More

I have been to a lot of city parks in my life but I am struggling to think of one I enjoyed more than this. Forested area, open spaces, lovely lake, cool playground, plus plenty of cheap eats and attractions for the children. Loved it - was in Zagreb 2 days and went 3 times with my 3 year old... More

This centuries-old park where there is a zoo is a beautiful but derelict. It lacks supporting facilities
