Optional excursion(countryside)
ZAGREB / KUMROVEC AND DINNER
A short yet scenic drive takes us to Kumrovec, situated on the bank of the river Sutla, along the Croatian-Slovenian border. Kumrovec’ fame is that it was a birth place of the late marshal Tito, the president of former Yugoslavia, whose house has been turned into museum. Today, the major attraction of Kumrovec is the Ethnological Museum Staro Selo (Old Village) with very well preserved village houses from the turn of the 19th – 20th century. So far 40-odd houses and other farm-stead facilities have been restored, which makes Staro Selo the most attractive place of its kind in Croatia. Later, we follow a winding road through the Zagorje hills. An early dinner of genuine local specialties and wine is served at the restaurant/farm Gresna Gorica (The Hill of Sin) with magnificent view of the 15th century castle Veliki Tabor.
