Jarun is the most suitable place for recreation in Zagreb, beautiful parks, trails and beautifully decorated artificial lake that is not inferior to natural lakes and sea

If you like to do sports this is the perfect place to come! During summer you can take a dip in the lake to refresh yourself or just bring your bike.

We caught the No 5 tram and got off at Jarun station. Walk to end of road and turn left. A few cafe around the pebble beach. Don't think I would swim there as it is basically just a man made dam.

We camped here for 2 nights. Beautiful and tranquil surroundings. There are sports facilities around the lake which are used by the locals. Great coffee shops and restaurants. Not far from the city. The restaurant grill at the end of the island of the lake was wonderful. Look out for the family of hedgehogs that live under the building. Great... More

Around the lake there is an excellend quality road, the length is about 5-6 kms. You can practice water sports like kayaking, canoeing, also waterskiing. I saw people practicing baseball, too. Anyway, nice place for recreation.

On the day we visited the weather was fantastic yet there were not many people to be seen. We hung out on the pebble beach but had been told that we should not swim in the water by one of the locals even though we were originally wanting to go there because of reviews online saying it was great for...
