Did you know that Zagreb has one of the best city parks in Europe? European Best Destinations Best City Parks puts Zagreb’s Maksimir at number 4, right after Paris, Madrid and London.

This is what they have to say about Maksimir:

“Park Maksimir, which was originally formed on the outskirts of Zagreb at the end of 18 th and the first half of 19 th century, today is completely surrounded with town settlements. In this new surrounding Park Maksimir still represents a shelter for many plant and animal species, despite its small area of only 316 ha. Its value for the protection of endangered species connected to old hollows is significant because of preserved hundred-year-old oak forests. In Park Maksimir more than one hundred bird species are recorded.

Besides forests, in Park Maksimir we can find meadows, lakes and streams, which also represent important habitats for various plants and animal, and in that way contribute to its biological diversity.”

That, our park guide and the fact that it’s Sunday – what better reason do you need to visit Maksimir?

Hop on trams 4, 5, 7, 11 or 12, get off at Bukovačka, and enjoy this sunny Sunday!
