I spent a beautiful day with my family walking around the park and visiting the Zoo. If you want a break from the busy town center and would like to spend some time enjoying the nature, I highly recommend visiting Maksimir park. It's really worth seeing!

I really love Maksimir Park. It is not far from city center, it is really peaceful and quite, amzing for long walks, running, badmintonn, etc. There are a lot of coffee shops, zoo, ice-cream shops. There are 2 parkings nearby. Ideal for family day.

Loved visiting this park in Autumn, the colours of the foliage spectacular. Maksimir is a large park suitable for walking or hiring bikes. Plenty to see or just relax on a park bench and watch the world go by. Lots of good cafes nearby. Great park for a relaxing stroll.

Mirogoj park is easy to access from the downtown, only 10 minutes ride in tram. It's quite big, so it offers lots of things to explore. I like that it's possible to find a quite spot. The lakes on it and forests contribute a lot to the overall relaxation, especially during nice weather. There is a Zoo there as well.

If you have some time to spare and like to take long langerous walks in wooded areas away from the hot asphalt jungle and madding crowds, Maksimir Park is the place for you. With heaps of walkways, lakes, woodland areas, swans, ducks and a plethora of other animals and birds, it's a lovely way to spend a few hours...

We jogged to and around the Maksimir Park and it was a highlight of our visit to Zagreb. Lovely running surface and beautiful, with interesting monuments throughout.

Maksimir is a beautiful, huge park, located 7 tram stations away from the main square. It's the Zagreb's equivalent of Hyde Park or Central Park. I highly recommend it if you'd like to stroll around in nature. Of course, if you aren't a frequent visitor here, try to stay on the main paths, because it's not impossible to get lost.... More

Maksimir Park can't really be fully appreciated in just one visit. This beautiful park consists of forests, meadows, streams, lakes (5 lakes in total), trails, bridges and various buildings and monuments. Among the more interesting historical structures are the Echo Pavilion (constructed after 1840), the Gazebo (constructed from 1841 to 1843), an obelisk (erected in 1843) and St. Juraj's Chapel...

A nice place to take a break from the city, a quiet place to take a nap o meditate after a hard day's work or just take a walk with a mate
