About the Zagreb hike day
Mount Medvednica is a very rare example of a nature park merging with a capital city. In 1981 Medvednica was declared a nature park.
The name Medvednica could be translated as “bear mountain”, located just North of Zagreb. Medvednica, a mountain range with its highest peak Sljeme at 1. 033 m, is a unique example of an almost fully preserved natural environment just out the back door of a large city.
Medvednica is well now as a place for hiking and other outdoor activities.
