Fodor's Review

Situated on a hilly 3½-km-long (2-mile-long) peninsula that is covered with pine trees and Mediterranean shrubs, Marjan Hill has been a protected nature reserve since 1964. It is known to locals as the "lungs of the city" because of its vast green area and is frequented by locals on weekends as a nearby recreational area. There are stunning views from the top, and rocky beach areas circling the peninsula. A network of paths crisscross the grounds that are suitable for biking and jogging. There are seven small churches throughout the park; one in particular is St. Jerome (Sv. Jere), built in 1500 into a rock face and which includes Renaissance-style stone reliefs on the walls. The beaches on this side are more relaxed and offer shade but there is limited access for cars, which helps to preserve the green of the park. There are bikes to rent and water sports available.
