Taste Samobor

Taste Samobor

Samobor is a place that will fulfill your heart and soul. It’s situated in the north of Croatia, surrounded by a wide mountain range, 20 kilometers away from the Croatian capital Zagreb. It’s known as a small town with thousand faces.

We won't be travelling  far, just about fourty minutes from Zagreb to see how Zagreb surrounding looks like. It is pleasant, it is peaceful. It has all that man can wish and jet its rather small :) Samobor town is a sweet little jewel decorated in baroque style. Its energy is natural and calm. Many people from Zagreb decided to move to Samobor due to its slow rhythm of life, its nature, climate and altogether favorable living conditions. It offers cultural events, museums and galleries, attractive nature, culture monument …our day will be fulfilled with a little bit of everything and there'll be no place for boredom! After we've had enough of exploring, we're going to enjoy some great coffee in the city center.

Samobor has a reputation as a gourmet center. It would be a shame that any visitor leaves without trying a kremšnita (a custard slice) and homemade specialties, muštarda (a grape mustard sauce), having a glass of bermet (a red wine, fruit and herbs aperitif) or eating a krafna (a jam doughnut). We will try some of these delicacies just to be sure in Samobor gastronomy. Yumi!

P.S. Samobor is also the cradle of mountaineering in Croatia :-)

Departure is at 11 AM from your accomodation. We arrive at Samobor and please our taste buds with Kremšnita - a custard slice. The name of the dessert means simply "cream slice". After having a delicious cake we head for a tasting of Bermet(a red wine, fruit and herbs aperitif) and muštarda(a grape mustard sauce). We will find out the origins of both of these delicacies and how are they made.

Around noon we decide what do we want to do next. We can take a tour of the Old town which is on the Tepec hill or just take free time to walk through this charming little town,  buy a souvenir, have a delicious coffee or craft beer in the town center or visit Samobor museum. Samobor museum unites a bit of everything; the story of Samobor, old documents, art, history... It doesn't take too long to explore it, but it will keep you interested the whole time!

It's lunch time, luckily for us, because by now everyone is hungry and eager to try the specialties of Samobor! We head to the tavern Gabreku 1929 where we will enjoy the local delicacies.

With big smiles and full bellies we are going back to Zagreb. On our way we are wondering, shouldn’t we maybe stay in Samobor and only visit Zagreb! :)
