When vacation turns into a fairy tale

Looking for an ideal vacation, you’ve been through many places. One impressed you with beautiful vistas and nature that surrounds them, the other thrilled you with cultural and historical sights, and in the third one you fell in love with warm-hearted hosts, their legends and stories… Each place had something special and it was special. And then you came to Zagorje, climbed the wine road to one of the many green hills and looked around you.

Beautiful! This is really like in a fairy tale. Here is everything, that every real fairy tale has to have – forests, castles and manor houses, museums, thermal springs, churches, paths, vineyards and wine roads, delicious food, dear people, stories, legends and traditional songs.

Region that wrote a history

If there were no people living in it, Zagorje would be just fairy-tale hills. There would be no story. And people like to tell stories, create experiences… Write history. And then store all that history in museums and castles to leave trace for those who will come. Therefore, if you are interested in what Zagorje is known for, go to one, or better, all Zagorje museums and castles, and find out everything you are interested in. Instead of the time machine, enter them!

Region of top quality wines

The story of relationship between Zagorje and wine should be started with old Krapina’s Belina, one of the oldest varieties in the world and the ancestor of many of today’s varieties without which the current oenological scene could hardly be imagined. Especially when such a mythical variety chooses Zagorje as the only place where it still intends to grow and prosper, it becomes quite clear that there is some special, indefinite connection between wine and fertile Zagorje land, which is ultimately crowned with numerous medals at world wine fairs. However, in order to avoid too much talk, come to us in Zagorje and you won’t regret it for sure.
