"The Mountain of the Bear" Medvednica by polardabar

Medvednica Travel Guide: 15 reviews and 27 photos

Medvednica is a mountain north of Zagreb & the whole thing is a big park of nature. Since I had sports with my university gang there, I have tons of funny memories from there... :) The highest point's called Sljeme & it lies on about 1035 m. There are marked paths which can lead you to the TV tower or to numerous mountain cottages where you can eat some really nice food. Yummy! :) During winter you can are also ski! A great place to get some rest when you're tired of the city!


A fortified burg built around 1250 is one of the most valuable & biggest burgs in Croatia. Its irregular plan is very interesting & there's a great view of the whole city of Zagreb from there. It's the Shrine of the Homeland with an eternal flame. Very interesting!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A lot of fresh air, great places, nice food, peace...
  • Cons:It takes you a while...
  • In a nutshell:If you have time, be sure to go up there!
