Visit Trakošćan Castle & Kumrovec etno-village

The Highlights of Zagorje – a day trip from Zagreb through scenic roads

Discover the Zagorje region and its most charming sites: a mystical fairy tale 13th-century castle of Trakošćan and Kumrovec – 19th-century ethno village. The castle’s location crowns the hill surrounded by a pristine beauty of a lake that will dazzle you, as much as the opulent architecture and lavishly decorated interior hosting a valuable collection of paintings, furniture, and weapons.

Kumrovec village museum features 40 restored houses and barns made of pressed earth and wood. The village was the birthplace of Josip Broz Tito, the former president of Yugoslavia. His house is converted into a museum containing original furniture, letters from foreign leaders, and memorabilia.

Since we are passionate about the history of Croatia and the former Yugoslavia (and also great foodies!) this tour is going to be full of stories, fun, and local experience not to be missed – a traditional lunch prepared from organic ingredients, accompanied by delicious wine. Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city!

    T&T travel boutique (Tihana) has organized a sailing boat trip for me and my five friends last June. The boat was great, skipper she found was the best we ever had (we sailed quite a few times in the past) and the itinerary she put together was excellent. Tihana was extremely helpful all the way through and we had an awesome trip! Needless to say, we shall go again with her agency!

    Maja Jelusic Cooper / Guest

    We recently were introduced to T&T Travel when we found ourselves in Croatia for a three week vacation with no travel plans. They quickly responded to our inquiries, met with us in Zagreb on very short notice, and crafted a travel itinerary with hotel reservations and tour suggestions. In hindsight, it was a perfect experience and T&T deserves all the credit for helping us understand and appreciate Croatia.
