It´s amazing this park, is like a forest in the city, we take the tram number 12 , that stop in front of the park. The park is really big, we walk only to the lake and around, but is a very peaceful place that worth a visit when in Zagreb

We like the feel of this huge undulating Park, with its boating lake, cafés, long avenues and kind of Capability Brown feel to it. It seems it was opened about 300 years ago and is a peaceful place on the eastern end of the City, about 15 mins max from the Centre, preferably by tram, next the Maximir football stadium.... More

Huge park, went to the zoo. Saw lots of different animals, impressive range compared to the English zoos that I have been to. But I did find it quite upsetting seeing the poor lonely bear, which was a huge, beautiful animal, pacing back and forth in its tiny enclosure. I don't think this is morally right to keep a bear...
