LAKE JARUN: SEA IN THE MIDDLE OF ZAGREB
In the immediate vicinity of the new neighbourhoods in the western part of the city, the recreation and sports complexes, Jarun and Mladost, were first developed.
On weekends and on workdays, Jarun is the place to go for rest and recreation. It was built and opened in 1987, when Zagreb hosted the World Student Games. Walking paths, lakes with boating facilities, numerous restaurants and beach cafés, are comprise the many attractions which bring people to the Jarun Centre for all kinds of reasons. Among the lush greenery, close to the clear water of the lakes and beaches which fill on hot summer days, there are also cycling paths, jogging tracks, a mini-golf course. The lake itself contains one of the best rowing lanes in Europe.
