Tram 12 and 11 can easily take you from city center to this park although it is located almost out of city map. It is very large and full of forest. Very nice for a walk or simply get away from noisy world

10 mins taxi drive will take you to the forrest. Maybe, the wood! Sunbathe in one of lovely meadows, or stroll among the trees, your batteries will be anewed!

Founded in the late 1700s (!), this is a park with some lovely classical European elements. Serene, well laid-out, centrally located with nice ponds, walking trails, playgrounds, zoo, and sufficient facilities. We spent a gorgeous autumn afternoon and enjoyed it!

This park is very close to the city and easily accessible by walking or biking. It has many trails that are handicapped accessible and easy for those with physical challenges to enjoy nature.

We took a stroll through the park on our last morning in Zagreb (on this trip, I have been here 2 times prior as well). It is a very relaxing place, plenty of shaded areas with hundreds of places to just stop, sit and take...More

Entrance to the park is free. You will pay just for the ZOO. Price depends on your age and if you are with a group or alone. Miha
