Great facility

Just over 7 km walk round lake plus another to get to and from tram. Great range of facilities for sports and just relaxing. Give yourself at least half a day.

Jarun is very beautiful, and a great place to visit if you fancy a little time by the water. It is however a little further out, perhaps not ideally suited to those with mobility requirements.

We walked here from the river embankment. Quite a few people were swimming or sun bathing on the beaches and Island and it was fun to watch the water skiers going round on a circuit wire on the lake doing jumps and acrobatics. There are lots of comfortable bars with good views of the lake. I believe a music festival... More

I go there every day with my bike, and it's never boring or similar... The best part is its southern part, full of intact nature (forest, water, bike and walking paths, pebbles, park for children).... I love it! There is also possibility to walk on the overbank along the river Sava, its marvellous...Unspoiled, beautiful nature so close to trams, buses,... More

Taken there by local friends. Overrated. Not worth the trip. Poor food, average coffee and drinks. Water activity no big deal.

Jarun Lake in the capital city of Zagreb is a popular getaway for residents and visitors alike at any time of the year, but especially in summer when the clear waters are ideal for swimming. Good for swimming, canoeing, pedal boat and windsurfing.

Lake Jarun is off course a lil far from the main Zagreb city but a trip here is worth the travel you make. Beautiful and serene by the day and a hot shot party place by the night. this place is filled with good night clubs, some playing Croatian Music, some EDM etc. One can easily club hop here as...
