The more we learn about Zagreb, Croatia and the encompassing area, the more we want to see of it. After spending the weekend in the central city observing the markets, indulging in the cafes and being energized by city life, we set out on Monday afternoon for a day trip to Samobor.
Tucked in the hills near the Slovenia border, Samobor seems much further away than the 30 minute bus ride it takes to get there. The expansive main square is lined with cafes dishing out local delicacies and surrounded by historic buildings. The yellow painted church, St. Anastasia, sits prominently across from the square on a hill with a clock tower ringing out the time. In the distance, the remains of the Old Town atop Tepec Hill are visible – and accessible via a short, but steep, climb. The Gradna stream rambles through town, which encouraged us to do the same.
