This is "the" place to come and indulge yourself in the world famous "Kremsnita" which apparently was invented in Samobor. Don't be surprised if your Kremsnita is still a bit warm. I just loved it but the locals reckon that it should be cold out of the...more
When we went there the outside area was full so we decided to sit inside in the longish cellarlike room. The menue is in Croatian and funny enough in French. We were there on a Saturday afternoon and the place is also popular for family outings. I ate "Popecci na Samorborski" and expected something like Cordon Bleu but I got very thin porc rolled...more
There excist very long craftsmen tradition in Samobor, eversince the medieval times of the town. During the past times a number of handcrafts disappeared for good but still, a trace of it can be seen during the local fairs or carnival festivities.
What to buy: More or less, nowadays jewelry is industrial made, however, here in this goldsmith shop you can still order handmade ornaments which makes your jewerly unique.
What to pay: The prices are allways negotiable, it depend on your skill how much you'll pay.
Kremsnita is one of the things, Samobor is well known for…There’s no trip to Samobor and not eating one of these…It is a cake that has a very long tradition and as the years pass by, it tastes only better…You can try them on the central Samobor square, in a restaurant ‘’Livadic’’ or in the little dessert shop ‘’U prolazu’’ just on the other side of...more
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 dessertmore
Do not try fishing in the town' s brook, it is not allowed. However, there are other beautiful fishing resorts on outskirt of the town and its surroundings.
Still, fishing is not allowed freely, you have to apply for a fishing permit by the local authorities.
After to much beers or local white-wine, mixed with mineral water (we call it gemisht), you may ask yourself a question: which one of these is the right one?
Unique Suggestions: Samobor and the nearby hills are surrounded by outstanding beautiful nature. In the parts around the town you will find mountains, hills, small rivers, waterfalls and caves. Make sure to follow the well marked paths only coz otherwise you might have problem to find the way back.
Fun Alternatives: There is no need for dilema, several little bridges exist here and each one is the right way to across this little brook.
You can get a free map on a leafleat with other information from the tourist office on the main square. They also sell postcards. Their address is: Trg kralja Tomislava 5, 10430 Samobor
In case that the tourist office is closed then you find a map hanging on the pavement of the main square on the church side by the river see photo no. 2.
As I told you in the previous tip to take the roadlike path to Sv. Ana. The reason is that you will then come past this monument which commemorates the first congress of the Croation communist party in this spot on 1st August 1937. It can be disputed whether that was any good but nevertheless it's part of Croatian history.more
In order to see this church you will have to walk uphill behind the museum. It's a pleasant walk through some forest. After the last houses there is a steep path or alternatively a more road like one. Take the more road like natural path. The church was padlocked when we were there. There are benches everywhere in case you get tired.more
