Top 5 Places for Barbecuing in (and around) Zagreb

Total Croatia News


1) Bundek
Bundek is definitely the closest to the centre, but it’s also probably going to be the most crowded, so you are going to have to camp there from early morning if you want to catch a barbecue spot. There are toilets available, which is very convenient.

2) Jarun


Jarun is bigger than Bundek, so there are more options, but it’s also popular among locals (especially the small picnic houses, perfect cover for sudden storms


3) Gorščica – Sljeme


This is a mountaineer lodge on the slopes of Medvednica. The road is unpaved, so don’t start panicking if you can’t find the road – it’s a gravel road with signs leading you towards the mountaineer lodge and picnic site. You can take paths 23, 24, 25, 34 and 35 if you decide to hike there (approximately 8 km)

4) Ponikve


This is a big meadow surrounded by three crooks: Jezeranec, Javorščak and Slivnjak, and a potable water source, Jambrišakovo vrelo.
You can get there by taking the Zelena magistrala in Gajnice/Stenjevec, and at the end of the road, you’ll find a parking lot where you can park your car and then head over to find your spot at the huge meadow

5) Zajarki Lake, Zaprešić


This lake is located less than 20 km from Zagreb; definitely won’t be as crowded as Jarun and Bundek, and it’s equally pretty and convenient for barbecuing.
