The only building that was open during my recent walk to Pionirski grad was the Restaurant building, although they weren't serving any food (or at least noone was eating anything).

Take any tram going to tram terminal in Dubrava (7, 12) and then catch the bus number 208 (direction Vidovec). Alternatively, take trams 4 or 11 to Dankovecka street and wait for bus 208 there. The usual ticket for 1st zone of Zagreb tram/bus network is valid.

It would be a shame that the whole complex becomes forgotten, or even worse, that it becomes an ownership of some of the new developers who would erase it from the face of the Earth. Even if it's maintained as a park would be...more

I doubt the copy of the Bosko Buha movie is usable any more. Still, after years of neglect most pavillions were renewed recently - at least important things...more
Pioneers weren't learning only in classrooms but whole campus was shaped like one big classroom where Schools in Nature were organized. There are paths where Pioneers could learn about different plants, about the cycle of water in nature, about creation of the clouds and origins of thunderstorms. One of the forest paths is named "Alley of the...more
