Samobor Off The Beaten Path

  • Communist monument

    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
  • Sv. Ana church

    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
  • Sv. Juraj church

    Before the end of the prayer path you can already spot St. George's church. It dates back to 1743. You can actually drive up there by car. It's on the way to the castle ruins. It was also closed.
