Although it may sound like a cliché, but there is only a few places in the world so close to city’s urban areas – Zagreb, Jastrebarsko, Karlovac, Samobor in which you will feel as if time stood still and easily forget the sounds of the city noise and busy lifestyle.

As a painter on his palette, the nature in Žumberak mixes all shades of green, brown and blue. Green tree tops, pastures and dense deciduous forests are speckled with clear streams of fresh drinking water.

Climb up some of Žumberak’s slopes and spread your view – life will briefly nicer and easier.
