This tour is designed for those who have interest in medieval history and the era of socialism in Yugoslavia. First, a visit to the medieval castle Veliki Tabor is planned. Afterwards, you can have a break for lunch at a traditional restaurant Grešna Gorica (optional). After the lunch, we will visit Open-Air Museum in Kumrovec, where Marshal Tito, former President of Yugoslavia, was born.
Veliki Tabor castle brings us hundreds of years in the past at a time when nobility enjoyed a luxurious lifestyle at the expense of the poor peasantry. After admiring this beautiful fifteenth-century castle and hearing the legend of Veronika of Desinić, you can enjoy some typical dishes of the region, taste a piece of the traditional “štrukli”, take a sip of rakija or enjoy a delicious lunch in a pleasant family restaurant, called Grešna Gorica (Sinful hills). A break for lunch is optional.
Kumrovec Staro Selo (Old Village) Museum is our next stop. It is the largest open-air museum in the country. It was made as a reconstruction of a nineteen-century village, including a birth house of Marshal Josip Broz Tito (former president of Yugoslavia).
