No city in Croatia boasts with such beautiful parks as Zagreb. You will definitely be out of breath the moment you step onto the so-called Lenuzzi horseshoe - a green-belt consisting of city squares – parks in the angular shape of the letter U.
Parks are based upon the ideas of an urban planner Milan Lenuzzi in the second half of the 19th century. Parks are usually designed as a combination of French gardens with flower parterre and English forested parks, surrounded by large public and private buildings. They cover the total of 7 squares.
While strolling around the city, make sure to check out the Botanical Garden. The richest flora in Croatia, you will wake up to feel that you did not even know existed. The most romantic of the Botanical Garden strolls is the one on a spring dawn when everything is lowly waking up and smells are the purest.
The very city center is located in Ban Jelacic Square, the largest square in Zagreb. The Cathedral in the Roman-Gothic style, completed in the early 13th century, is located nearby. Tourists can visit the Cathedral on their way to the Upper Town, called Gradec and Grič. The two parts of the Upper Town are located on the slopes of the Medvednica mountain. Together with Kaptol the three parts formed Zagreb as we know it today.
The Upper Town offers the possibility of romantic walks on the Štros promenade with a beautiful view of the entire Zagreb. You'll have the city on the palm of your hand from here. Go on a funicular ride, one of the Zagreb’s sights, to descend into the Lower Zagreb. Ticket can be bought from the driver and the price is a modest 1 euro.
