Maksimir Park & the City Zoo

  Maksimirski perivoj bb     more than a year ago

A perfect half-day outing for love birds, families, the four-legged, this place will revitalise a tired soul. Leaves, lakes, grasses and dirt are all a part of the equation as well as clouds, a sky and periodically the very sun! Blaring car engines have been removed from this place and as such it's a great escape. The 18 hectares of lush greenery and forest was opened to the public in 1794 and was the first of its kind in this part of Europe. An added bonus, Zoological Garden of Zagreb is housed within it offering wide range of animals in natura-like habitats. Kids tend to like a small petting zoo where they can actually touch the domestic animals. There is also a buffet restaurant in the zoo itself at its east end which is quite convenient if you want to spend all day. Catch tram N°11 or 12 from Trg bana Josipa Jelačića east (Dubec) to the Bukovačka stop. The entrance to Maksimir park is on the north side of the street.




Open 09:00 - 16:00. The ticket office closes an hour before closing time.
