Cake & Hike in Samobor

Cake & Hike in Samobor

Samobor half day tour is a perfect choice for those who are willing to trade the city rush for the forested slopes of Samobor- Zumberak Nature Park area.
You can soak in this lovely town’s atmosphere by just sitting at the Main square and watching people passing by. Here in Croatia we pretty much mastered the skill. I guess we must have picked it up from our Italian neighbours, they have a saying “Dolce far niente”. And speaking of dolce, here in Samobor it’s absolutely mandatory to have their local delicacy, a fluffy custard pie called kremsnita. Hiking on an empty stomach is against hiking rules in Croatia.
Colourful baroque and secession facades and flowered balconies shall be left behind ones we start the hike.
There are numerous trails that were initially made to connect historical and cultural monuments alongside that makes this trail so interesting. There is the famous St. Anne’s Chapel, Anindol Pyramid 14-meter-high viewpoint (no Egyptians, sorry, just a silly name for this structure) and St. George’s Chapel. The legend has it that the chapel has no foundations because it just appeared mysteriously on this spot one day. Wait, what?!

Samobor Old Town is the most exciting site on the trail. Today it is all abandoned and in ruins but still quite an impressive structure with the picture postcard view from the top. There is definitely something quite mystical in touching the old stone and imagining the life back in the 13th century. Not only it was an important fortress but it was also a film set for many movies. Back in the1986 a movie called The Gods armour was filmed here in Croatia. The rumour has it that during filming one of the scenes on the stone wall the starring actor Jackie Chan almost fell down.
You should not worry, this hike requires no special skills. Good spirit and sports shoes will do just fine.
