“Beautiful discovery”
Reviewed March 21, 2014

We are living in Zagreb for 14 years and this was our first visit to Maksimir :) But afrer we saw it we cannot wait to go there again. Great preserved meadows and forest, dog friendly and probably the place with the cleanest air in Zagreb exept Sljeme. Great eagle statue and lot of other monuments.

“great park”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

This big park has its zoo and few lakes. In one of the lakes you can rent little boats and row for half an hour. On sunny day lots of people are there to take a walk, ride bikes, have picknic and play ball games.

“Park Zoo”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

This famous city zoo in Zagreb is home to otters, lions, swans a more famous wild animals that you rarely see in ordinary zoos. This is your typical place to go to for a natural learning experience. The park that is something to appreciate. The 18 hectare land is home to a relaxing ambiance that is sure to sooth your anxiety. I loved my stroll in. This is a good place to visit early in the morning.

“A very large and well kept park with several lakes”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

A large park is a great bonus for any city, especially if it is easy to get to it. And Maksimir is very easy to get to from the center of Zagreb: there is ample parking near Dinamo stadium, or you can take tram no 11 from the main square and get out by the stadium.
First part of park is well kept and landscaped in vaguely Austro-Hungarian style, but once you go deeper in past several follies you get to quite undisturbed woods. Several lakes with good gaggle of ducks swimming about.
There is a zoo attached, but I did not visit it.

“Not expensive is the best thing I can say”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

We went to the Zoo and did not visit the rest of the park. The park is very nice, but the zoo has something to be desired. Although the weather was not very nice when we were there most of the animals were inside in crowded enclosures. The primate house was actually kind of sad because of the crowding.
