    Summer in Zrinjevac Park

    by croisbeauty Written Jul 29, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Zrinjevac is just a foot from the main square and offers bag full of surprises, especially on saturdays mornings. Imagine an green oaza which is situated in the heart of the city, park full of flowers, green areas and city traditions. Here you can go back to the past, enjoying waltzes, operettas, jazz, evergeen and good old rock n roll from 60s and 70s. Or you can put on costumes of times long ago and take a photos.....

    Park Maksimir

    by croisbeauty Updated Sep 3, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the biggest and the most beautiful park of South East Europe, it was laid out in 1784 and is graced by an old oak forest, sunny open space and romantic lakes.
    Besides, there is a huge Zoo park too, one of the biggest in that part of Europe.
    There are kilometres of walking paths, several small lakes, green meadows but above all here you could hear the sound of silence. There is nothing so sweet like dozing on a green grass in a shadow of an big oak tree, try it and you will enjoy it alot.
    Btw, the name Maksimir means maxy peace.

    Most of the visitors are looking for monuments or classy buildings to take the picture of, I suggest you to visit parks and gardens of the city. There are so many parks and greenery in the city centre of Zagreb.
    The Botanical Garden is situated in the heart of the city, and it is a real oasis of calm and beauty. It is in a walking distance from the main square, right next to do the Regency hotel, do not missing it

    MAKSIMIR PARK

    by bagediya Updated Feb 20, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Very big park near the central of the city opposite of the Stadium. I recommend to you to visit the Zoo inside this park. From Main square ( Ban Jelacic Trg ) you can take tram to this direction. Tram no : 12 & 11 ( Direction DUBEC ) . If you get the tram from Main Train Station ( Glavni Klodvor ) you should take the tram no : 4 ( Direction called DUBEC )

    Zrinjevac park

    by canaglic Written Mar 4, 2008

    Zrinjevac, or Nikola Subic Zrinski Square, Zagreb's best-known public garden, is a romantic promenade and a recurring motif in the works of photographers, painters and poets. So, should you wish to experience the silence of the 100-year-old plane trees, enjoy watching the sparrows taking their morning bath in the fountains, or take a look at the meteorological post to see what tomorrow brings – then Zrinjevac is the place to be.

    "what is this life if full of care, we have no time to stand and stare?" if you like Davies's Leisure, or you are an observing type of person, fond of nature, or just looking for hideaway from the sun, Zagreb's parks are place to visit. well-kept, with adequate number of benches to take a rest. and do I need to say that they are beautiful in full spring blossom? oh, and don't forget to check on sun-bathing tortoises at the pond :)

    Maksimir Park

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I immediately fell in love with this park. It's big, it has some sights, benches to have a seat and relax and it's big enough to take a decent walk or for jogging. The attractions are a small lake, a church, monuments, the pavilion of echos, a couple of cafés and the zoo.

    King Tomislav Square

    by hello3001 Written Apr 9, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Zagreb has beautiful parks and King Tomislav Square is part of it. With the statue of the King on a horse that dominates the area opposite the main train station, the park is a start of the walk to the Jelacic Square. You can take a tram to take you to the Jelacic Square if you are in a hurry, but you will miss out on nice scenery.

    Maksimir Park is situated in the eastern part of the town. Named after its founder, Maksimilian Vrhovec, it was opened to public in 1794. It contains a couple of lakes, a main promenade and literally thousands of trees. It is unlike any other park that I have visited.

    Zrinjevac, our central park!

    by tomeek Updated Sep 25, 2006

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    To me, one of the most beloved places in Zagreb, park Zrinjevac, situated only few minutes from the central square. Place to sit down and enjoy the harmony of art and nature! I strongly recommend a night walk, when old lanternes are illuminating discretely while fountains are flashing under the lights of reflectors!

    This is the large park you step into when arriving to the city from the railway station. This is one of the most beauty entries to any city I saw in Europe, unfortunately I arrived to Zagreb from the airport.

    Botanicki vrt

    The botanical garden is a five-minute walk from the Central Station, situated right behind the Esplanade hotel. The entrance is free, so you should use the opportunity to check it out. Considering that Croatia has a lot of endemic flora, I believe it's quite a good thing to look into it a bit more. For info on opening hours, details & maps, please check here. Enjoy!

    I wouldn't advise going there during the night, because it's known as a place where there's all kinds of people...

    Maksimir

    Numerous parks such as Zrinjevac, Ribnjak, the Botanical Garden and Maksimir with their overwhelmed nature provide a perfect picture of Zagreb. Maksimir is not only Zagreb's largest and most beautiful park, but also of one of the oldest (1794), largest and most beautiful gardens in this part of Europe. The park is so huge that you can easily spend the whole day walking along the lakes, have a picnic or visit the Zoo. Besides the Zagreb Zoo, there's also the Dinamo stadium nearby.

    Zrinjevac

    It's a rather large park with many Fontains just in the centre of Zagreb.

    Walking through the Zrinjevac park, you will find museums, galleries, shopping centres and other sights of this wonderful city.

    There are many parks in Zagreb, but Zrinjevac is definitely one of the most special ones and due to its great location it just can't be missed.
