Join us on this trip to Croatia’s historic past of magnificent Medieval castles and exciting archaeological discoveries.
Visiting Zagreb is a good idea is because it’s surrounded by many fairytale-castles, built for Croatian nobility during the Middle Ages. These wonderful castles are located in the greenest part of Croatia – the region of Hrvatsko Zagorje, north from Zagreb. One of the most beautiful among them is the Trakošćan castle.
We’ll pick you up from your hotel in Zagreb in the morning and start our tour, driving through the hilly countryside towards our first stop – the Trakošćan castle.
Trakošćan is the most visited castle in Croatia and the region. Situated among hills and mountain slopes, this Medieval fortification provides a real Disney world experience. The castle is built on a hill, so you can see it from far away, and is surrounded by a vast lake. Today the castle is a museum, providing an interesting insight into the life of Medieval nobility in Croatia. After a guided tour of the castle, enjoy your free time walking around the lake or sipping drinks surrounded by wonderful scenery.
Our next stop is the archeological site in Krapina. Krapina is the city in northern Croatia, popular for the newly opened and highly regarded Museum of Krapina Neanderthals. Krapina is the home to first Neanderthals in Croatia and is famous for it. The Krapina Neanderthals are also important in international context; archaeological excavations here make important contributions to general scientific understanding of the early human history.
