„We dreamed about…wooden house, freshly cut grass, blooming flowers, various kinds of fruit, the family together as one, children running, couples smiling, happiness, safe home…“
In the fall of 2016, seven kilometers from the Dr. Franjo Tudjman International Airport and eight miles from the city center, in Novi Zagreb, precisely in the village of Mala Mlaka, Etno Park Zagreb warmely opens its doors to visitors. A magical tourist destination for all those who want to relax from everyday stress and busy lifestyle. The place where the stress stops, the noise disappears and where it seems as sun never sets. It provides peace, not only with its landscape but also with the warmth that it spreads. Every detail here is made with love and each has its own story, that goes back to those maybe not so distant, but often forgotten days.
Whether you want to enjoy the art history, local cousine, or simply spend the day at a picnic with your family, Etno Park Zagreb is the right place to visit.
At the entrance, it will be hard not to notice the wooden house we named „A Collection of Memories“, furnished with antiquities that represent a combination of different styles. Within the Etno Park Zagreb, there is also one smaller wooden house, equally decorated. Then there is a summer house, where you can find shade during the hot summer days, and in colder days, this place turns into a magical winter garden, which will keep you warm with a cup of tea or mulled wine. Next to the summer house is a charming playground. There are a lot of games, laughter and new friendships made. Then there is an elegant hall for celebrations and gatherings, that can be changed and adjusted as you wish, making it the best place for every occasion. And finally, though it seems as there is no end, because we are located on the area of 40 000m2, a special place is ocupied by orchard, which has about 800 trees of different fruits.
Particularly impressive, during the walk around the orchard, especially in the evening hours, is the view of Sljeme, the highest peak in Zagreb, the top of our Medvednica mountain.
From the distance, and up close, just a look at Etno Park Zagreb shows it is aboundant with preserved greenery and fragrant flowers, and we hope your stay here with us will be as beautiful as a fairy tale.
