Perfect green oase in Zagreb. So close to center and perfect for running trips, trail or hikes. Over we gets crowdier but on working day must perfect peace and quiet.

I don't like skiing, but viziting mountains are my passion. In al seasons they are beautiful. So I cannot reccomend traces for skiing, as I did not tried it, but just for spending good time - super.

Medvednica is a real mountain. Top of it is higher than 1000m. You can access top by the car. In summer you can enjoy mountain air, while in winter you can ski.

Well worth a visit, however some english signs telling which roads are one way would be useful. Don’t trust google maps / other programmes, they sent us up the wrong way!!!
