Medvednica


Zagreb is one of the few cities lucky enough to have a mountain right on its doorstep.

Zagreb is one of the few cities lucky enough to have a mountain right on its doorstep. Protected as a nature reserve, Mount Medvednica shelters Zagreb from cold northern winds. The mountain gets its name from the bears (medvjedi) who used to roam its wooded slopes, although none of the beasts remain on the mountain today. The 1,035-metre summit of Medvednica, known as Sljeme, is a popular destination for local hikers.
