The nicest park I have ever visited :) It is huge and you can have walk there or sit on a bench and relax. Do not miss very nice zoo which is a part of this amazing park.

I firmly believe that if you want to get the gist of a city, the places to go to are local cafés and parks. Finding where people spend a sunny Sunday afternoon will most certainly help you indulge into a city "properly", whatever that notion entails.

This place has great home style cooking for a good price in a great atmosphere! Don't be in a big hurry and enjoy the local relaxation! It is quite the pleasant place to relax or exercise!

For me, visiting the park was the highlight of my short stay in Zagreb. Reminded me of the Boston Public Garden but much larger. There is a zoo there as well which I didn't go to, preferring to walk through the main park instead. A lot of broad avenues, smaller trails through the woods, and a lot of secluded places... More

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

This place is really nice to visit. If you are a sport type or just a person who likes to take a walk in the nature, this place is ideal for you. There are lakes with a ducks, benches to take a rest and zoo.
