Even though the city is so lovely , its is quite difficult to resist wonderful green hills that look so inviting. There are numerous trails around Samobor but our choice today is the one that goes all around the Tepec Hill. Allong the trail there are many historical and cultural monuments and thats something that makes this trail so interesting. Allong the way we shall see the famous St. Anne’s Chapel dedicated to the patron saint of the town. The Legendary Tanc plac was very popular dancing-platform back in the early 20th century. The Stations of the Cross erected to commemorate the 1900th anniversary of salvation by Jesus Christ will bring us to another historical site, the St. George’s Chapel. The legend has it that the chapell has no foundations couse it just appeared misteriously on this spot one day .
The Samobor Old Town is the most exciting site on the trail. Even though abandoned and in ruins it is still quite an impressive structure standing it the most western part of the Tepec Hill. There is definitely something quite mysthical in touching the old stone and imagining the life back in the 13th century. The Samobor Old town was not only it was an important forteress in the Medieval times but it was also a film set for many movies. The 1976 movie hit called The Gods armour opening scene was shot right here. The rumour has it that the starring actor Jackie Chan almost fell of the stone walls while filming the sceene.Dont you worry, we shall stay on the beatten path all the time.
