Why locals love it

Locals often spend their free time enjoying the walks down the pathways of the late 18th century park Maksimir. It's a great place for recreational activities, such as jogging and cycling. In spring and summertime, there are all sorts of events going on inside the park.

Why you should visit it

Spice up your stay in Zagreb by visiting huge historical park Maksimir, enjoying the combination of beautiful park architecture and pure nature.
If you're a true a nature lover, you'll be thrilled to know that 5 lakes and centennial oak-forest of Maksimir make a perfect bird-watching location.

Special tip

Inside the park, you'll find the famous Zagreb city ZOO. My personal favorite stop inside the park is a little cafe called the Swiss House.

One of my favourite memmories from childhoos is definetily park maksimir as it is perfect for walks, they also have playgrounds for little ones and if you want to see Zagreb's ZOO this is the place to go.
