I was here only few hours, but I noticed in a moment, that it is my place - calm, amazingly beautiful, not crowded - just perfect for the rest close to nature.

I've been on Jarun many times. Especially because of enogastronomy. Usually a short walk, which is completed in Lida or another restaurant. Otherwise, it is a great place to go or walk or just resting on coffee. It is good for joggers or families.

A beautiful lake with a nice park around it. We saw it, since we were at the InMusic festival and every time we saw it around sundown - a breathtaking view.

Beautiful green zone in the western part of Zagreb that is used as a recreational point for all generations. Unfortunately, not much has been invested since 1987, when Jarun was opened, and the result is quite visible. One of the main things that should be...More

There's so much to do here, jogging, running, walking, swimming, the best part is the free exercise equipment and BBQ areas. There events almost every weekend. The down side are the WC.
