    Zageb- Jarun

    Jarun is Zagreb's sporting and recreational centre. Here you can rollerblade, cycle and walk along the tracks that surround around the lakes. You can also swim, row, sail, cable ski or even go fishing in the lakes.

    They also have soccer, beach volleyball, table tennis and basketball courts there.

    There are parks for kids to play and bars for the adults at night and day :-)

    Skinny dipping

    Jarun Lake skinny dipping

    Skinny dipping in the Jarun Lake during the month of January is a particular experience. Your chestnuts will probably need a 2 week recovery period to function properly again....well some people say your nuts will for always stay in that condition. Try at your own risk, geeks.
    Recommended to pure sadists.

    During the weekend, place is full of people who are enjoying in nice walking, driving a bike, rollerskating or just drinking coffee in bars..It's also possible to play handball on the sand. On the summer time people are swimming in the lake and sunbathing so this place is like Zagreb's beach.

    Jarun is a lake in Zagreb and a very popular destination for everybody who lives in the capital. You can go there just for a walk, or you might fancy a swim, maybe try your roller skates, or rowing and sailing.

    The lake is actually devided in several parts. There is a long rowing section where you're not allowed to swimm but there are two parts, smaller and larger section meant for enjoying the beach. There are also restaurants and pizza places where you can have something to eat or drink. Many chances for all kinds of sports too, walleyball in the sand, bowling, basketball, football...name it!

    As I have mentioned few times, there are many Jarun pics on these pages...:-)

    Never had seen snow before like me? well, Sljeme is the good choice. It's a hill which snowy at the top. Many people are going there for skiing or just enjoy the place. It's the biggest skiing centre in Croatia.

    I'm living in tropical country so we only have summer and summer every year... :)
    It was a such a great experiance to feel and touch the snow at the first time. It wasn't the same as I thought before. Now I know snow is more and less similar with fross in my refrigerator...hihi...I dunno.. I hope none would disagree with my opinion. :o))

    Jarun - walking paths

    Walking around the lake could be an exceptional weekend recreation too. During the sunny days, in late autumn or winter, whole this area is crowded with the local people. Besides, there are many restaurants and cafes, especially on the northern side of the lake, where one can just seat and watching people passing by. Remember a fact, the girls from Zagreb are gorgeous.

    Since it is a limited traffic area, here you can enjoy in all kind of recreative activities, in particularly on weekends. Although there are marked paths for the rollers, youngs like better the roud which goes all around the lake.
    Join the crew of smooth dudes, make new friends and perfect your skills at the same time.

    Feed the the Jarun swans

    Jarun swans

    There exsit huge flock of red bill swans in the Jarun Lake, which is constantly increasing, year after year. This birds are very domesticated and loved by the locals, especially the kids. You can walk through the flock and they wont runaway in the water. Quite opposite of it, they approach to the people seeking for food. Buy a popcorns in a nearby shop and feed them.

    If the hot summer day, instead of staying in your hotel room or drinking too much bear, refresh yourself in a small lake of Jarun.
    After beach activities or swiming you can enjoy in a couple of good restaurants, cafe-bars, or in excellent discoteque 'Acquarius' which is probably the best in the city.
