Art Park

Boundary-breaking art collective Pimp my Pump have teamed up with street art studio Lapo Lapo to turn a run-down urban park, located between Tomić street and Strossmayer promenade in the heart of Zagreb, into a vibrant open air museum. You can peruse the make-shift sculptures, watch the artists at work, or even get involved yourself.
