We somehow stumbled upon this pearl of a park while walking along the River Sava in August 2016. Gray skies during our walk turned to sunshine once we reached this place, miraculously. This is a wonderful getaway for anyone visiting (or indeed living in) Zagreb. Few people there on our vist, probably due to the weather earlier that day, so... More

Jarun is great for walking, jogging, cycling etc. especially at sunset and in the mornings. Quite busy on weekends. In the summer the beaches are full, the water clean and regularly checked in line with public health and safety standards. Plenty of bars and ice cream places in the summer, not so much in the winter. Swans and little ducks... More

This is outside of town and its pretty to look at . If you are going to canoe or row while you are there then ok... but if not.. no need to drive out.. too much in town to see.
