Zagorska Sela Things to Do

  • Ring the bell

    You can ring the bells by pulling these ropes at the basis of the bell tower. They are connected with bells on top of the tower. Although I was tempted, I also resisted the temptation, knowing that the priest wouldn’t be very happy of hearing the bells on Friday at 11.37 am.

  • Santa Ana

    A little bit to the north from Miljana castle there’s a narrow road leading to 301 metres high point where the chapel of Sta Ana is located.

It can end up as a pretty expensive dinner :-)

    Favorite Dish: We didn’t kill any turkey on the road, but we went to Desinic for a lunch consisting of turkey meat and traditional home-made pastry, followed by cheese pie. Check my (future) Desinic page for details….

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Well, when the roads are only a little bit wider than 3 meters a truck coming from the opposite direction presents a clear and present danger. Especially if it goes downhill. Just turn to the reverse and drive to the nearest wider place – sometimes several hundred meters and several serpentines away ….

    The funny thing about the bridge is that it is the border crossing between Slovenia and Croatia ? Aqua park belongs to Podcetrtek spa center in Slovenia, while the bar is in Croatia. The sign says "Republic of Croatia - State border". Another funny thing is that in the bar on Croatian side you can get only Lasko i.e. Slovenian beer. Since May 2004...
