THE BEST PLACE TO SPEND YOUR SUMMER IS…? – ZAGREB’S PICNIC
Not a long time ago, after awhile, I’ve finally visited Maksimir. Every single time I went there I was amazed by it, like it was my first time seeing it. Last time was not an exception. I’d fallen in love with it over and over and I feel like I should visit it more often. Got plenty of reasons for it ;).
Once, Maksimir was called ”Jurjaves”. Also there was this little, cute article about it called Jurjaves as well, and it said that this park was meant for relaxing, having fun, and adding an another boost to liberal arts. That’s why I was super thrilled when I heard the news that the city of Zagreb is organizing “Zagreb’s picnic“; an event, that is happening in 1 of 14 most beautiful relaxing parks in Europe, that allows its’ citizens as well as the tourists, the possibility of spending their free time at ”the green rush hour“ – on ”the meadow near the Second lake“ – near ”the Rock seat“. Every Saturday, from 10 am to 5 pm.
FOR THE FULL TUMMIES
Either it was relaxing hang out with your friends, romantic evening for two or family breakfast… you do need to grab a snack don’t ya? If perhaps today, you just don’t feel like cooking and getting tired and sweaty over that steamy pot, you may take a cheerful walk to your nearest “Zagreb’s picnic“ place and buy something called “Zagreb’s box”. It contains fresh, super yummy, homemade sandwiches, cheese and cream, bit of sweets, all sorts of refreshing beverages and let’s not forget our healthy side… fruits and vegetables from our own markets that should make your tummies smile and full.
FOR YOUR BODY AND SOUL
For the ones, who see relaxation as lying down, perfectly covered in shade, with just a hint of sun’s rays on ’em, enjoying a nice book, there is a little library on the open where you can borrow any book you fancy. For the ones, who need to move and be active (sports people), there is also a variety of sports and board games that can be played there. All this is accompanied by our amazing DJ! (We don’t take any responsibility for possible cramping or muscle sprains hehe 😉 )
The entrance is free of charge and all you have to do is bring a small blanket and be ready to relax and have a good time in the shades of our amazing Maksimir park!
For this amazing idea and organization we give credit to “Katapult promotion company” in partnership with Public service of Park Maksimir, Tourist establishment of the city of Zagreb and the city of Zagreb itself.
