Lonely Planet review

The park, a peaceful wooded enclave covering 18 hectares, is easily accessible by trams 11 and 12 from Jelačić square. Opened to the public in 1794, it was the first public promenade in southeastern Europe. It is landscaped like an English garden-style park, with alleys, lawns and artificial lakes. The most photographed structure in the park is the exquisite Bellevue Pavilion , which was constructed in 1843. There is also the Echo Pavilion and a house built to resemble a rustic Swiss cottage. The zoo has a modest collection of the world’s fauna and daily feeding times of seals, sea lions, otters and piranhas.
