While we are being hit by heat waves, we bring suggestions of quality refreshments in Zagreb and the surrounding area. For those whose annual vacation is not even in sight yet, and for those who have decided to spend the hottest part of the year in the capital, we bring you a number of options for where to go and how to refresh yourself during these hot summer days.

Look for refreshments at Bundek and Jarun


If you are not planning to visit the Adriatic soon, you can seek refreshment at the Bundek and Jarun lakes in Zagreb. Just like the sea, city lakes are suitable for swimming, and they will provide you with just as good relaxation in nature. When you get tired of sunbathing and swimming in the afternoon, you can additionally refresh yourself with a cold drink or ice cream in the nearby cafes, or you can hang out with the team and play beach volleyball.

The season of city pools is open
