    Cesargrad

    by Vanity666 Written Apr 2, 2010

    By the legend, Cesargrad was built by Knights Templars in 14th century.
    Medieval structure of the town consists of a semicircular stone building which had a residential function, enclosed in a system of walls and guard towers. The fortress was enlarged and rebuilt in several phases.

    Nowadays, all that is left are ruins.

    How to reach it? 20minute hike from village Klanjec, watch for the signs, or ask any of locals. Also, it is possible to drive to the mountain lodge Cesargrad and fllow the path from there on foot. But beware, watch the boy-scout marks on trees and rocks because the old castle is not far from the mountain lodge, about 5- max 10 minute walk through the forest, so if you don't reach it by then, return because you will get nowhere (been there, done that) :D

    Stari zanati - tkanje

    by croisbeauty Updated Jul 11, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Tkanje tkanina na tkalackom stanu bio je mukotrpan i dugotrajan posao koji se upražnjavao uglavnom u dugim zimskim danima kada nije bilo poljoprivrednih radova. Tkanjem su se uglavnom bavile seoske žene.
    Kao sirovina je služila kudelja, iz koje se izradjivala laka odjeca (košulje, donje rublje, odjeca za ljeto i sl), te vuna.

    Due to historical reasons (fights with Turks), most of Croatia's beautiful castles and manors are located in the North, i.e. in Hrvatsko Zagorje. Ideally, a trip to Kumrovec should be combined with visits to some of them: Veliki Tabor, Mali Tabor, Bezanec, Klenovnik, Miljana, Trakoscan...

    The manor at the photo is Miljana , a 10 minute drive from Kumrovec. Built and developed by the counts of Ratkay from the beginning of 17th century until the end of 18th century, it is now a private property of Mr. Kajfez who restored it to its original glamour. Unfortunately, the manor is not open for visitors. This is the best view you can get unless you make it to Croatian high society :-)

    Hrvatske Zagorje

    It is not really off-the-beaten-track tip but rather a description of the very picturesque region. Usually Croatia is associated with a coastline and the coastline is really great there. What does come to ur mind first ? Dubrovnik, islands, sea... But that's not all Croatia can offer. It has mountains and castles and it is really worth visiting. I was very glad to discover Hrvatske Zarorje together with Zdenka, Jasmina and Roland. It was relaxing day, a perfect combination of sightseeing, getting know locals and fun (our musketeer's battles)
