Best, and only mountaineering to be done in the city of Zagreb. Good place for hiking, scenic viewing and some good food at the peak of the Croatian Mountains...

Rode up to the summit on road which was reasonably quiet and a pleasant climb. Intended to do some mtb routes however the routes were not well marked. We were looking for more XC style tracks rather than downhill. Take your tracks on GPS.

Fantastic nature just 30 minutes from Jelačić Square. Great place to refuel your empty batteries and get away from stress if everyday life. Travelers are not so familiar with this venue, which is a shame, because beautiful woods, creeks and views of Medvednica are not be missed. Also, don't bring to much food when going there - there are plenty... More

If you are staying longer in Zagreb you should visit this place. One day is enough for visit. Ascent is not so difficult, it's a little more challenging walk through the woods and greenery with fresh air. For coming there use tram N 14: direct Mihaljevac and that is name of last stop where you have to get out and... More

There are very many well marked hiking trails all over this wooded and cool mountain. Many konobas (taverns) and open air refreshment places. Too bad the topography makes for many ascents and descents. Also, the forest vegetation results in relatively few views down into the plains.

Unfortunately when we arrived we found everything closed. Nothing was working, no snow. We hoped to ski in this year, but no luck.

We started our short hike from the end of the Tram line in Zagreb. We hiked for hours which far exceeded the quick route in the park we were meant to take. Ended up walking to this ski mountain by mistake and I enjoyed my first skiing experience- on two shoes sliding down as I stood upright. Fell over after... More

While this park is conveniently located just outside of Zagreb, and it's trails are nice and well-kept, I found the overall experience to be very average overall. The trails, at least the ones we were on, were all very heavily forested. This is great if you just want to be out in nature, but we all commented that we could... More
