Samobor is a small town in the north of Croatia, 20 kilometres away from the Croatian capital and 5 km from the Slovenian border. It is located on the slopes of the Samobor mountains, at the entrance to the romantic valley of Gradna stream. This is a medieval town of Baroque architecture, surrounded by a wide mountain range from the town of Okić to Plešivica, Oštrca and Japetić to Žumberak.

There is the especially attractive Anin dol and Grgosova spilja, the most beautiful caves in north-western Croatian. This picturesque town with its preserved city centre has a long excursion and tourist tradition and is the cradle of mountaineering in Croatia.

Samobor Carnival, the largest tourist event, attracts an increasing number of visitors from Zagreb every year, and its surroundings are a favourite place for them to visit. And at the festivities, asides from eating the donuts, eat the famous Samobor custard slices, garlic-sausages with mustard and drink the sweet “bermet”.
West of Zagreb is Žumberak Nature Park and Samobor Highlands. Their distinctive nature stems from the number of karstic phenomena atypical of the areas adjoining the Pannonia Plain: deep canyons, small, sparkling rivers bursting with numerous waterfalls and broad, flowering meadows. The special feature of Žumberak is its people, who live on the higher parts of the mountains, in villages clinging to the steep slopes. The majority of the population are descendants of the famous Croatian guardians of the sea - Uskoks from the town of Senj, located on the shores of Kvarner. As some of the people are Greek Catholics, the villages of Žumberak are dotted with numerous small, picturesque churches, including the highest peak of Mount Žumberak the 1202 metre high Sveta Gera. The foothills of Žumberak Samobor Hills are gentler, particularly the vineyards on the slopes of Plešivica. Grape vines blend nicely with the landscape, as do the numerous forts scattered across the surrounding hills, like the old town of Samobor.
