Maksimir is single handedly the only reason why I like being in Zagreb. It's kind of amazing that a park like this can exist so close to the city center and is so accessible. It's great for running, because you get a little bit of everything: paved paths, trail, gravel, dirt, elevation changes, zig zagging routes. It's really the best... More

Quiet, relaxing, in dimmer mode at evenings, good for running, riding a bike or just walking a dog. Takes some time to walkthrough huge maksimir wood.

I went to this Park. It was nice, but if you have short time in Zagreb do not go because it is just a normal big park as many cities in the world have.

Finding where people spend a sunny Sunday afternoon will most certainly help you indulge into a city "properly", whatever that notion entails. Maksimir is a bit removed from the center of Zagreb and probably one of... More

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
