Approximately 45 minutes walk from the city center to get to the entrance of the park. The Zoo in the park has very reasonable admission fees. Just do it! more »
I really like parks in Zagreb. This is really a nice one, large and great for both runs or walks. Or a romantic evening! Nature is beautiful, I like that trees are marked and you can see which one is which. Everything is clean and spacious... definitely would recommend!
One of the most beautiful places in Zagreb. The 5 lakes are amazing. There is a Zoo nearby that is filled with exotic animals. 10/10 recommend!
