If you love nature and mountains

Just 30 min from the city center by car, public bus available. But the best is to take a walking tour, many options, 1- 2h to the top. Beautiful in any season

If you trully want to experience Medvednica mountain, and it's highest peak Sljeme, it'll take up at least 6-7 hours of your day, if not more. You can get there by car or by tram. If you're going by car, you can go almost to the top, but watch out, a lot of roads up there are one-way roads, and... More

As a local, I love Sljeme a lot. It is a perfect place for hiking, so close to the city but in the same time far enough. Do not miss the food in one of the mountain guesthouses on the top. There are so many trails, some very easy, some difficult so everybody can find something for themselves. I would... More

We caught the tram to Dolje then went through the tunnel there. It was a little difficult to work out where the walk started. The walk was a steady climb and took a couple of hours, and was rough underfoot in parts. The view at the top is breathtaking and we enjoyed morning tea at the cafe there.

I climb Medvednica 1 a month because this mountain is sooooo beautiful that I cannot resist. It is peacefull, fresh air, creeks, even waterfalls, beautiful sights and there are few good mountain houses. Go there, enjoy whole day and please take your garbage with you!

Must see place While in Zagreb! can go by car (cca 20 min from downtown) or by public transportation(tram until bottom and bus will take you to the top). Aslo you can take a walk, and choose between lots of climbing trails, depending of your fitness level and depending if you are with children.cca 2-3 hour walk to the top.... More

Sadly disappointed that the lift hasn't apparently worked in years. Pleasant drive up the mountain. Not a great deal to do up there but every opportunity to explore the forest.
