We will make you wanna explore Croatia

Horses are beautiful and noble animals, my love for them, riding and spending time outdoors, in the nature, has started 12 years ago. I have visited many places across Croatia while riding in pleasant company. Surroundings of Velika Gorica and Zagorje are often parts of our adventures, but every summer we go to unforgettable Gorski kotar. More precisely - Mrkopalj.

Parenzana – the Route of Health and Friendship… Under this name is hidden the railway which draws and connects the best tourist destination in Northwestern Istria. Thanks to it, beaches in Poreč and Umag, Euphrasius Basilica and Savudrija Lighthouse, Baredine Cave and the observatory in Višnjan and many other magical medieval towns can be reached and visited.

If you choose to visit Zagorje, tour of the castle Trakošćan is inevitable part of it. Trakošćan is located 23 km northeast of Krapina, 40 km southwest of Varaždin. The nearest places are Macelj and Strahinčica. It was built in the late 13th century as a small observation fortress for monitoring the road from Ptuj to Bednja Valley.
