Get to know Bundek Park:
This beautiful location was created as a forested park, surrounding two small lakes which make all the difference in what the popularity of the park is concerned. However, it is not only for the lake that people come here, but for the completely relaxed and peaceful atmosphere, for its apparent seclusion from the rest of Zagreb and simply for its amazing and undeniable beauty.
The Bundek Park is not new, though young people think so. Actually, the area surrounding the lakes was used in the ’70 as recreational spot, but since then, it had fallen into neglect, it was only in 2007 that the Bundek area was once again revived in order to serve as a refuge for stressed, tired and bored inhabitants of Zagreb.
