Where is NP Medvednica situated?

  • Medvednica Nature Park is located right above the capital of Croatia and forms its natural border on the northwest.
  • Located on a strategically important place, in the past it protected Zagreb from attacks from the northwest, and today it protects the city from the cold and sometimes unpleasant north winds.

Why visit NP Medvednica?

  • Because it offers the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the city and beyond 60 different hiking trails it provides a path to inner peace and well-being for every visitor.
  • Because in addition to natural beauty, which hardly any capital city can boast in such proximity, Medvednica also hides rich cultural and historical heritage.
  • Because thanks to numerous mountain lodges and restaurants, every visitor to NP Medvednica will find something for themselves. Our recommendation - beans with sausage and cheese strudel.

What is PP Medvednica hiding?

  • In the Nature Park there are more than 70 streams and creeks. More than 1000 plant and 50 animal species found their home there and considering its proximity to the capital, it makes this place unique in a big part of our beautiful world.
  • On the slopes of Medvednica, a medieval castle has been watching over the town for almost 800 years - the beautiful Medvedgrad fortress.
  • Medvednica is home to one of the largest caves in Croatia - cave Veternica over 6,000 meters long, which provided shelter to humans 40,000 years ago, and today is a safe haven for over 20 species of bats.
  • Zrinski mine which reminds us that silver was mined here more than 500 years ago.

Trip itinerary (may vary depending on our walking pace and trail conditions)

This half-day excursion will give you an insight into the noble, green protector of the City of Zagreb - Mount Medvednica - and a special perspective on the capital city of Croatia.

We start the trip in the morning with departure from your accommodation. After a short drive, we arrive at the beginning of the hiking trail. Right at the beginning, we will visit the chapel of St. Roch and see the Kulmer Palace from the outside - one of the most beautiful 18th century palaces in Zagreb, unfortunately closed for the public.

Further on, the path leads us through a beautiful deciduous forest, along the Kraljevac stream all the way to Kraljičin Zdenac. From Zdenac, the road leads us to Grafičar mountain lodge, where we will have the opportunity to taste traditional dishes of continental mountain lodges. Recommendation – beans with sausage, and cheese strudel for dessert.

After lunch, depending on the condition and mood of the group, we will head either to the top of the mountain or to the medieval fortress of Medvedgrad, which is located on the lower part of the mountain.

The fort is open to the public and offers by far the most beautiful view of the beautiful slopes of Medvednica and the entire city of Zagreb.

Return to Zagreb in the late afternoon.
