Staying in Zagreb for a few days and decided to check out Jarun. It was an easy tram ride from the main train station area. Once there, was a nice walk around the lake. Quiet and scenic.

This is primarly sport location for recreatives and serious athletes, but also, that is the place for a night out, barbecues, families etc. What I, as an sport active person, mind here is that asphalt is poor, ruined and cars drive around cyclists and rolers...More
