The aim of this paper is to explore the prevalence of activities in leisure time of the young. A survey was conducted on 1062 students in 8 primary (n = 505; 47,6%) and high schools (n = 557; 52,4%) in Sisak-Moslavina County in the Republic of Croatia. The questionnaire of spending leisure time used was made up of 30 variables on a five-degree scale of ordinal type. Descriptive values indicated a low prevalence of activities in spending leisure time. The hypothesis of the existence of statistically significant difference between the students in primary and high school was confirmed from the sample on the following variables of leisure time: electronic media, sports, going out and relaxing activities. Students in primary school spend more of their leisure time using electronic media and doing sports, while high school students spend more of their leisure time hanging out, going out and doing relaxing activities. As part of partial correlations (while controlling variables age and time of studying), correlation between school achievement and cultural (r = 0,091) and relaxing activities (r = 0,109) was found to be low and positive, while negative correlation was found with the composite variable: hanging out and going out (r = -0,108).
