This is the birthpalce of Josip Broz Tito, world famous jugoslavian statesman and comunist leader. Museum is the only open museum of that type in Croatia. it evokes the tradition of Zagorje rural area with turn of the 19th century. Antique homes hiding rural culture of life as well as displays of traditional crafts.

Where does the Neanderthal belong on the Tree of Life? We will find out the answers to these questions in a very original museum that will leave us pleasantly surprised - Kraneamus Krapina Neanderthal Museum. Besides all informations about prehistorical times and exibition artefacts you can see Neanderthal figures in natural size. Pretty crazy!

The most popular castle in Zagorje area is Trakošćan castle built in the 13 th century. Photogenic, well located on a small hill, situated in charming surroundings, surrounded by a lake and a romantic promenade, it's a real satisfaction to visit this landmark .Trakošćan is now a museum, where we will uncover age-old tapestries, portraits, weapons and furniture.

Zagorje is a region north of Zagreb, about an hour distant, and it  literally means "trans-mountain area". Zagorje is filled with castles, rolling steep hills, many shades of green, and wonderful wineries. Perfect place to escape from the city bustle and summer heat. You will fall in love in this fairy tale land. We start our journey at 9.00 o clock and our first stop is Kumrovec.

This lovely village has been transformed into an open air museum depicting the country life at the time when world known Marshall Tito was born there. Each house displays a different aspect of village life. There are over 40 buildings, including houses, barns and other outbuildings.

 Lunch is in the beautiful countryside property, on the small hill. Surrounded with apple trees, vineyards,…idyllically!

Big and pleasant surprise is a Kraneamus Krapina Neanderthal Museum. It  is a great labyrinth of learning about prehistoric times, the long geological history of the Earth, revealing the evolution of life. If you searched for something challenging and mysterious this is the right place for you!

Like in every fairy tale there is the castle, and the heroes, and the noble ladies. We will go back in the 13th century and share this story with you. Trakošćan castle is situated on the small hill above the lake, well preserved, with lots of original furniture and middle age armour.
