Wather in lake is pretty clean and perfect for a hot summer day. All beaches have toilets, changing cubicles, bars and kiosks.
In Jarun park there are few coffee house and bars are also available for you. My visit to Jarun was fantastic and i was told that its the best place in Zagreb.I had a drink up there to enjoy my trip in of those bar. I can’t remember the name but it was good place to sit down, facing towards the lake.
As we know that Croatia has some beautiful beaches and unfortunately Zagreb is far away from beach so authorities have decided to establish a beach in Zagreb. Jauran has a very beautiful lake beach.
In summer it is full of people but as you can see that this photo was taken when it was cold.
