Zagreb Weddings | Park Maksimir

Park Maksimir

Maksimir Park is a unique object of park architectutal heritage of the City of Zagreb and Croatia. It was built on top southern foothills of Medvednica at the end of the 18th and in the first half of the 19th century.

Created by clearing of autochthonous common oak forest and hornbeam, today it is completely surrounded by urban areas.

It represents the first public garden in the South-East Europe and one of the first in the world.

In the time of opening, it was one of the highest park achievements of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy. Until that time, common were only private gardens next to the noble castles and kings’ residentions unavailable to public.

Having preserved hundreds years old oak forests, Maksimir Park plays an important role in protection of endangered species related to old caves.

There are over one hundred bird species registered in Maksimir, with hole-nesting birds as one of the most significant.

It is interesting to note that the population density of a middle Spotted Woodpecker (Dendrocopos medius), European endangered specie, is one of the highest in the world.

There are also another animal species related to old forests, such as squirrels and different kinds of bats, which are globally endangered species.

Beside the forests in Maksimir Park, we can find meadows, lakes and creeks – important habitat for various plants and animals, which contribute to Maksimir’s biodiversity.

At the time of its creating, Maksimir Park was the most modern, elite and popular move in the City and surrounding area, to which politics and famous people of this period were proud to be connected to.

Today it represents the first class, antique, vibrant urban area, which needs to keep and preserve its prestigious place among Europeans historical sites by modern approach in protection and usage.
