NATURE PARK ŽUMBERAK
West of Zagreb is Žumberak Nature Park and Samobor Highlands. Their distinctive nature stems from the number of karstic phenomena atypical of the areas adjoining the Pannonia Plain: deep canyons, small, sparkling rivers bursting with numerous waterfalls and broad, flowering meadows. The special feature of Žumberak is its people, who live on the higher parts of the mountains, in villages clinging to the steep slopes. The majority of the population are descendants of the famous Croatian guardians of the sea - Uskoks from the town of Senj, located on the shores of Kvarner. As some of the people are Greek Catholics, the villages of Žumberak are dotted with numerous small, picturesque churches, including the highest peak of Mount Žumberak the 1202 metre high Sveta Gera. The foothills of Žumberak Samobor Hills are gentler, particularly the vineyards on the slopes of Plešivica. Grape vines blend nicely with the landscape, as do the numerous forts scattered across the surrounding hills, like the old town of Samobor.
Samobor is a little town in a fertile valley of the Sava River, at the footings of Samobor Mountains. It is a genuine town-museum. Each house, square or street tells its history. The ruins of the medieval burg above the present town witness the rich history as well as numerous exhibits in the Town Museum. King Bela IV gave to Samobor the charter and the status of free royal trading place. Samobor is the most developed tourist place in Zagreb County, and favourite destination of many Zagreb citizens and other guests. It is especially notable for its food and drink and attractive festivals, carnival festivities in particular. In the town vicinity there is an interesting Grgos cave and old iron, tin and gypsum mines in Rude. Some other attractive destinations are the Fairy Pits, Eco-centre Slani dol, Suban - the medicinal herb garden in Manja Vas etc.
