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!

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.

Sljeme is a nice green oasis, not far from Zagreb center. It takes about 25 minutes by car, a bit more by bus from Mihaljevac (last station of tram number 14.) If you are a sport type, there are several paths to access the top also on foot. Depending on your fitness level, you would need about 2 hours. There... More

I visit Mount Sljeme regularly during the summer, mostly for biking. Ideal ascent for bicycles on the one-way asphalt road, and multiple options for descending either on asphalt or dirt trails/roads. Overall a well-kept nature park, fantastically close to downtown Zagreb. Signposting could be improved.

Really a great sightseeing location in Zagreb, you can see the entire city, probably best to visit in the evening.

Instructions how to get to this castle by public transport can be a bit tricky + the '20 minute walk up there', was not completely true. If you come with public transport & want to walk up to the castle, first take a tram to either Britanski trg (is on one end of main shoppingstreet Ilica) or Mihaljevac. From both... More

If you like nature. this is the place you must visit while in Zagreb! If you do not have a car, it’s not very easy to get to from town as you have to take the tram, but if you do it's worth making the drive to the top. Sljeme is a very peaceful and green place to spend a... More

A terrific wilderness just minutes outside Zagreb. Previously served by a brilliant cable car but this had ostensibly been under repair for about a decade now. There are a couple of log cabin restaurants at the top which are well worth the trip alone. Views are really stunning. The road up especially but also the descent are some of the... More
