Designed in an English garden style, Maksimir Park (Maksimirska) is a beautiful green space encompassing almost 18 hectares, the largest park in Zagreb. The park contains two pavilions, Bellevue Pavilion, built in 1843, and Echo Pavilion in a Swiss design. The park has walkways and man made lakes, wooded areas, and flower gardens, making it a great place to relax and stroll. There is also a small zoo with a variety of animals. Maksimir Park, known as Zagreb's living monument, is named for Bishop Maksimilijan Vrhovac, who was responsible for its construction in 1794.
