Southwest of the city centre lies the man-made Lake Jarun, Zagreb’s very-own riviera. Consisting of a big and a small lake connected by a channel, Jarun was created by the digging of gravel from the backwaters of the Sava after the catastrophic flood of 1964. Jarun was developed into a recreation era in time for the World Student Games, which were held in Zagreb in 1987. Rowing facilities, sports grounds and cycling tracks were added, making Jarun the largest sports and recreational centre in the city. During the day Jarun can be teeming with people, whether they are simply out for a walk or engaged in more serious athletic training. The lakeside pebble beaches fill with bathers during the summer. In the evening, cafes and clubs along the lakefront attract people looking for a fun night out.
