Zagreb

It is not a common case that a city has its own nature park, and Zagreb near the city center has Medvednica, a nature park that is a favorite resort of many domestic and foreign tourists. The streets and squares of the city are interspersed with green parks and gardens, Strossmayer promenade in the Gornji grad, where today in the company of the poet A. G. Matoš you can enjoy the most romantic panorama of the city. The city is also characterized by Lenucci's "green horseshoe", a series of eight green squares. The most popular among green squares is Zrinjevac. Nearby is another place to escape from the throng of the city, and that is the Botanical Garden which hides one of the richest collections of plants in Europe with about 10,000 plant species. In the eastern part of the city is the spacious Maksimir Park, the largest park in Zagreb, where many animal kind have found their home in the famous zoo.
