CASTLES OF HRVATSKO ZAGORJE (4 DAYS/3 OVERNIGHTS)
We’ll combine a coach ride and walking to explore all of the main Zagreb sights. We’ll visit Kaptol (the medieval part of Zagreb), the Franciscan Monastery and the adjacent Church of St. Francis, which according to legend dates back to the 13th century, the time of St. Francis of Assisi. We’ll walk around the Dolac farmers’ market and the 18th-century Baroque Church of St. Mary. The tour ends in the heart of Zagreb, at Ban Josip Jelačić’s monument on the square bearing his name. A full-day excursion takes you to Hrvatsko Zagorje. It is a region famous for its well-preserved castles and spas with thermal and mineral waters. We’ll visit the Oršić Castle in Gornja Stubica and the Peasants’ Revolt Museum. Next, we’ll visit the Ethno Village of Kumrovec where we’ll learn about the old crafts and visit the birth place of President Tito. Trakošćan, the best-preserved Croatian castle dating back to the 13th century with a wonderful park and artificial lake, is also part of our itinerary.
