Getting around Samobor
Hi VT travelers
We are returning to Samobor at the end of may and would like to know if anybody knows of any locals that would be prepared to guide and drive us around the area. As last time we visited, over easter, we missed a lot of the beautifull sites around there with not having a car and how much it would cost.
Re: Getting around Samobor
Possible the best option is to ask at the local Tourist Office (Turisticki informativni centar) or Planinarsko drustvo (mountain-climbing club). Besides the surroundings of Samobor you should also visit Zumberak and Pljesivica, areas around Jastrebarsko.
Travel Tips for Samobor
Samobor - downtown river
This is the river that flows through the center of Samobor. Just where I took this picture is a small park where you can sit down and enjoy a few quiet minutes before, or after, you walk through the town to find some cake and coffee.
The Main Square
The small old town of Samobor is situated on the east slopes of Mount Samobor, by the stream Gradna.
It is only 20 km from Zagreb, and its surroundings stretch from Okic to Žumberak. The area is one of the oldest and most attractive weekend haunts of Zagreb dwellers and a frequent resort od day-trippers, mountaineers and tourists from Croatia and abroad.
Samobor is famous for the local Kremsnita. There is one particular coffeehouse that is famous for its Kremsnita's and believe it or now, people travelling hundreds of km's just for the Kremsnita here ;-)
Krafna is Croatian version of donuts…it can be filled with apricot jam (which is most often), chocholate or vanilla cream. They are a symbol of carnival and at that time of year they are called ‘’pokladnice’’. During carnival in Samobor you can buy them everywhere, even at the street and for the price of 0,5 Euro, you can have a delitious dessert
Je, to je to! Žuto s bijelim, kao papinska zastava ali mnogo ukusnije. Posjetit Samobor a ne kušati kremšnite, e to je vec grijeh božji.
Ali ljudi moji, kakve kremšnite je radila moja majka, ma kakva Nadalina. Nikad nisu ovak' lijepo izgledale ali okus i slast, to je nešto neopisivo.
