Central Croatia

National Parks · Specialty Museums · Room Escape Games
The forested hills of Central Croatia support vineyards along its slopes, which fall gently into river valleys. The region features hiking, cycling, hunting, and sightseeing in the mainland dotted with romantic castles, Baroque churches, and monasteries. This area offers more than 350 registered cultural sites, as well as ethnographic villages and several places of religious pilgrimage. Join some of the well thought-out tours focused on folklore, naïve art, and old trades and traditions, such as gold panning. For a weekend trip, many visitors combine tasting local cuisine and premium wines with a visit to one of the countryside manor houses showcasing the region's wooden architecture. The lakes and rivers provide the chance to try rowing, rafting, and fishing. This region teems with stories and myths, such as the legend of dancing witches, but it also boasts modern amenities like ski resorts, health spas, and natural thermal springs.
