Samobor - a paradise for gourmets
Besides the carnival, Samobor is known among gourmets for its custard pastry (kremšnita), a sweet cake made of cream foam. Samobor's custard pastries are also special in that they are eaten hot, and everywhere else are served exclusively as chilled cakes.

This desert delicacy is honored traditionally by an organized event called 'Days of the cream cake (kremšnita)' that will be held this year from the 7th to the 9th of May. In those days the most famous Samobor patisseries will serve the cake, which is said by a local custom to open all doors. In fact it is said that, if you have a problem or disagreement with someone, give them a cream cake, and then, it is believed all will be forgiven.

Besides enjoying this sweet that the people of Samobor are so proud of, evidented by the fact that they even wrote an anthem dedicated to the cake, during the ''Days of the cream cake'' numerous cultural and entertainment events will be organized on the main square. Amongst other things, there will be a competition in preparing the cream cakes and writing Haiku poetry about custard pastries.

Samobor is located 5km north of the Croatian border with Slovenia and 20km from Zagreb airport which is only a half an hour's drive away.
