Visited on a snowy day in January so unfortunately did not make it around the entire park (very icy!) but I spent about an hour and a half there and the parts I did see were beautiful. The lakes are lovely, with plenty of ducks. Additionally, it's very easy to get to - from the central square (Jelačic) you can... More

Went here on a chilly December afternoon. All the lakes were frozen, but was fun to walk around. This place is pretty huge so we could not cover all of it due to the weather. The tram stop to get here is right outside, so it is also easy to access. There is a restaurant inside the premises, but it... More

Don't get fooled by map, it's not that far as it might seem. There are 4 tram lines that will take you to Maksimir from city center in 10 minutes. Maksimir park has it's charm at every season of the year. It's romantic at spring and fall, great for partying and to cool down in shades during summer and it's... More

I spent a beautiful day with my family walking around the park and visiting the Zoo. If you want a break from the busy town center and would like to spend some time enjoying the nature, I highly recommend visiting Maksimir park. It's really worth seeing!
