Lovely place

Great quiet area with a lot of sport activities, pleasant people and nice atmosphere :) We visited a restaurant near the shore - it was very peaceful and charming.

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.

I have heard that people really praise this place , but when I visited it , I realized that It was not anything special . Besides the Gallery club in which advocates really beautiful girls, rest of Jarun not something so great ...

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 .....

Beautiful man made lake geared up for watersports and swimming. Part of it is sectioned off for rowing but the other side has a wake boarding/water-skiing area for the more energetic and a relaxing part for swimmers. Around the lake there are lots of cafes, bars, restaurants and a club. We went into the Dalmatia Pizzeria bar which was great.... More

Cute lake (local people call it "Zagreb`s sea) is in perfect location, easily accessible by tram or car (there`s even possibbility of free parking, if you`re lucky to get a spot). There`s plenty of bars/restaurants, but I think Jarun has a lot unused potencial. However, it has few activities that can shorten you a couple of hours...
