It's a huge reason to love Zagreb because it's a really beautiful and peaceful park which is very large and where you can lose track of time while walking. The Pavillion of Echoes is located inside park and definitely a must see.

I really like Maksimir, and I am so sad because we don't have nice ZOO. Maksimir is amazing for relaxing, walking and driving with bike. I go there with my friend, with bike, and we always try to find something new. There are many little lakes that I adore. The best thing about Maksimir is Vidikovac, you can sit there,... More

Located by the pride of Zagreb, the stadium of the football club Dinamo, this park is easily accessible. Having visited it during Christmas, we didn't expect to see many passers-by; however, we were in for a surprise. In a short period, the park got lively with locals who adore jogging and taking their kids and pets for a walk in... More

Maksimi park is great place to visit. You can feel a lot of emotions there if you are with your partner. I engaged my girlfriend there, and I will go there again, because Maksimir is my love place now.

This park has very long history and had been elected one of the most beautiful parks in Austro-Hungarian Empire long ago. Nowadays, inhabitants of Zagreb and its visitors enjoy walks and jogging among several lakes among which it is impossible to hear any of modern city's noise. Kids are amazed by the beauty of exotic animals in the ZOO within... More

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.

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. Maksimir is a bit removed from the center of Zagreb and probably one of... More
