Vondelpark, Amsterdam. Without a doubt the favourite park in Amsterdam. The park was opened in 1865, and yearly, the park has around 10 million visitors.

It lies in the heart of Amsterdam, close to Museum Square, and Leidseplein. The park is surrounded bij multi-million villa's
Detail of entrance gate.

The Hague The Netherlands: Landgoed Clingendael

The Clingendael Park is an old landed estate with the largest Japanese Garden in the Netherland. This is one of my favorites in The Hague because of the old trees and beatufull colours!

Zagreb

Zagreb has numerous beautiful parks, especially in the old part of the city. The layout of the 19th century urban core is dominated by the so called "green horseshoe", a series of 7 parks and a small botanical garden. Here are some of them:

1. Zrinjevac is the most popular of the parks on the green horsehoe and the one closest to the main city square. It features 3 fountains, a music pavillon and numerous busts of famous Croats. The park is surounded by fine public buildings, including the Archeological Museum and the Croatian Academy of Arts and Science

2. King Tomislav Square is located on the SE edge of the horseshoe, in front of the Main Rail Station. It is named after the first Croatian king and features an art pavillon on the northen edge, a large fountain and the statue of King Tomislav.

3. Botanical gardens
Small, but beautiful, Zagreb Botanical Garden (Botanički vrt) was founded in 1890 and maintained by the College of Natural Sciences. Its area covers 4.7 hectares and it was created as an English-style garden. The collection contains over 10 000 plant species of which 1800 are tropical plants from all over the word.

On the eastern edge of the city centre, approximately 2,7 miles from the main square, lies the large forest-park Maksimir. It was founded in 1787 by the bishop Maksimilijan Vrhovec and is the oldest public park in SE Europe ( although technically Zagreb belongs to Central Europe ). Bishop envisaged a French-style park with geometrical layout, but it was redesigned by the Bishop Juraj Haulik who created an English-style park of magnificant beauty, dubbed "Little Versailles" by the guests from Vienna. A ZOO was added in 1925.
