Northern regions of Zagorje and Međimurje reflect peaceful rural life with wonderful historic cities as Čakovec and Varaždin, the Baroque wonderland surrounded with several breathtaking castles.
Eastern parts of magnificent Slavonia with its endless golden wheat fields show a beautiful mutualism of rural Pannonian lifestyle with Austro-Hungarian metropolitan influences, especially visible if you find yourself in Slavonia’s yet undiscovered capital Osijek.The mountainous regions of Gorski Kotar and Lika are the perfect getaways for all those who want to escape urban environment and enjoy blissful natural landmarks and find inner peace within numerous mountains, forests, and clean air.
The world famous Adriatic seaside stretches from the Istria on the North , a place of exclusive cuisine containing famous Istrian truffles and wines, through beautiful Dalmatia, region of Roman emperors, cradle of European literature and amazing cultural heritage, to the very South where lies Dubrovnik, a city so breathtaking that it served as King’s Landing in Game of Thrones.
