Tuškanac Park in Zagreb is a jealously guarded secret of the Croatian capital. We will discover the secret to curious and nature lovers - Tuškanac is a street and a forest in the very center of the city, between Jurjevska Street and Kraljevac brook. The street descends all the way to Dežman's passage that exits at the main city street Ilica. Tuškanac is used to be more recognized as the unavoidable place for nights out, due to Saloon Club and cinema with the outdoor stage. It is less recognized as the street that ends in the forest of the same name, through which the Dubravka`s path runs. The name Tuškanac originates from a medieval judge who was originally from Tuscany, and whose convicts all had ended at the pyre at the entrance to today's Tuškanac. Until the 19th century, Tuškanac was the part of the city for wealthy Zagreb family's houses, which were split into smaller estates in the 20th century. In 1887, further construction was forbidden in the lower part of Tuškanac, which is the reason that the forest remained mainly preserved. At a few steps from Ilica street and the loud sounds of city noise, we have the opportunity to dive into a cool shade of forest idyll, melt into the scents of the earth and enjoy the singing of forest birds. Tuškanac retains much of the former peace today on the paths that follow the slopes of the upscale neighborhoods that surround it, where from it is easy to reach Cmrok, another oasis of peace near the center. The shadows of Tuškanac are a refuge for many walkers in hot summer months, and in addition to the children's playgrounds, restaurants and terraces of several cafes, various music events are held regularly here, so we can say that this is the most musical park in the city. It is also loved by the recreatives and all those who want peace and harmonious moments in the unpredictable pulse of the city.
