Beautiful parks

I took this lovely photo at Zrinjevac park – I've already written you about it. I just love it! It is probably one of the most beautiful parts of Zagreb. In the distance you can see a Strossmayer Gallery with the works of old masters. This park is part of so called Zagrebačka zelena potkova (Zagreb green horseshoe) – that is a line of parks and squares with a representative buildings in a very center of a city, and obviously in a shape of a horseshoe. It was designed in the 19. century and represents an unique urbanistic plan.
During the second half of 20. century there was not much planning nor building of new parks in Zagreb. Which is sad, because I believe that the ''green'' areas make a city more pleasant for living.
