Samobor - A paradise for gourmets

Samobor - A paradise for gourmets

Samobor is a small town in the north of Croatia, 20 kilometres away from the Croatian capital and 5 km from the Slovenian border. It is located on the slopes of the Samobor mountains, at the entrance to the romantic valley of Gradna stream. This is a medieval town of Baroque architecture, surrounded by a wide mountain range from the town of Okić to Plešivica, Oštrca and Japetić to Žumberak.
There is the especially attractive Anin dol and Grgosova spilja, the most beautiful caves in north-western Croatian. This picturesque town with its preserved city centre has a long excursion and tourist tradition and is the cradle of mountaineering in Croatia.

Besides the carnival, Samobor is known among gourmets for its custard pastry (kremšnita), a sweet cake made of cream foam. Samobor's custard pastries are also special in that they are eaten hot, and everywhere else are served exclusively as chilled cakes.
