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

One of my favorite places in Zagreb to go with friends for relaxation and having fun! The nature is more than beautiful and great for outdoor activities.

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

Whenever you feel like escaping from the busy city, Medvednica is only half an hour drive away. During Summer the temperatures up there are usually around 5 degrees lower which makes it excellent Summer escape. It's great for a stroll in Medvednica forests in any time of year. If you are "sporty" you can go to the top by foot... More

Excellent place to go both in the summer and winter. In the summer you can get the cable car and enjoy the landscape or if you're fitter and more adventurous you can go hiking. At the top of the mountain you can treat yourself with a cup of coffee while soaking up the atmosphere.
