From the medieval times to your own relaxing afternoon
Destinations: VELIKI TABOR – KUMROVEC – KLANJEC – TWO HOURS CLIMBING TOUR NEAR ZABOK (optional: relaxing time in a village inn or climbre's home)
- VELIKI TABOR CASTLE
A big fortified castle, the gem of the Zagorje region, dominates a lovely hill not so far from Tuheljske toplice. Veliki Tabor is a cultural and historical monument of a top category according to the UNESCO classification.
Only 30 km away from Zagreb lies a little town of Klanjec, surrounded by forests and green hills. The area inspired a Croatian poet Antun Mihanovic to write many poems between 1835 and 1845 about this beautiful landscape, the people he met, the way he felt in his heart while taking walks in the area. One of his poems became the Croatian anthem.
Klanjec is the home town of one of the greatest Croatian academic sculptors, August Augustincic.
At the entrance to the ethno-village stands Tito’s birth-house. It is at this small estate that Tito was born at and spent his childhood years with his family. In front of the house stands the original statue of Tito, work of August Augustincic, a prominent Croatian academic sculptor and Tito’s personal friend. The rest of the Old village is an open-air museum (eco-ethno showroom).
- PICELJ - SIKIRISCE
The perfect ending to a perfect day: relaxing time at a fine village inn where everybody can relax, enjoy local food and sip some wine. But those who still feel like doing something more, those who still have energy and feel fit, they could take a walk into the forest and go hiking on the hills.
