Maksimir Park Zagreb

The myriad of walking trails from Zagreb’s leafy suburbs are well-connected to Mount Medvednica, including the surrounding urban areas of the 1,005-acre Maksimir Park – opened in the 18th century as a promenade and Baroque-styled gardens for the people of Zagreb. Over time, various sculptors, landscape architects and master gardeners contributed to its appearance.

Zagreb Zoo, established in the early 1900s also belongs to Zagreb’s first and largest park, Maksimir.
