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.

We walked there but we should have taken the bus.It used to be a crime ridden area but the "council " invested in the area to create large area for sport and recreation. There is water skiing ,swimming a 2000 metre rowing course + tennis etc etc.

Besides the nightlife and clubs open until the early morning hours,Jarun is great for sports activities. Personally, I ride a bike and I like to run but quite often come to Jarun. Also, Jarun is great for grilling with friends and family. One of the most popular events is InMUSIC FESTIVAL. The circle around the lake is 6.2 km

We stayed at lake apartment five nights and enjoyed our vacation. There are a lot of versatile restaurants, bars and cafes with great service. As well ice cream stands and one kiosk. Hang out, walking, jogging, biking etc. A lot of activities available. Clean and well maintained. Open also late night, or even early morning in the night club.

We were staying close to this lake when we visited Zagreb. Amazing oasis in the city. You can swim because it is quite clear, jogging, rowing, cycling, or simply walk. Ideal for all hours of the day ... You just have to pay an entrance fee to enter by car .....
