near Novi Zagreb, Grad Zagreb (Hrvatska)

People who love Sava mounds most are runners and joggers. You’ll see many activities taking place there: from cycling, fast walking, baby strolling – but runners have almost acquired a monopoly over these trails. When you follow this Sava trail, you’ll observe captivating urban sculptures dotted around. The most memorable one is the statue of the runner.

The walk begins at Bocarski dom (bowling sport centre) and leads to the Sava mound through a small playground. It’s a long linear stroll along the river, first to the right towards the Railway bridge and then back to the left towards the Bridge Mladost. On the way back, and to avoid retracing your steps, it takes you into a residential area of Cvjetno naselje to explore some of the nicest and truly interesting socialist villas built around the early 1960s.

This is a Zagreb Honestly recommended walk, ideal for getting plenty of sunshine and fresh air, and to meet an alternative Zagreb.
