A lovely place with a unique old town center, which you should definitely include in your itinerary, is Sveti Križ Začretje. A tourist destination rich in local culture, history, sports and its own unique traditional cuisine. And in the very center of this place stands the Sveti Križ Začretje castle, proudly defying time. Together with the Žitnica Museum, the Church of the Holy Cross, the Rudi Stipković Gallery, the Ivan Lovrenčić Gallery and the weaponry collection of Jačmenica family, it constitutes the very backbone of its cultural life. Preserving tradition and offering entertainment, a special late-summer event called “Prvi glas Zagorja” (First Voice of Zagorje) is held, which has brought numerous Croatian pop stars to fame, and which breathes life into this lovely place.
Tradition is also preserved through restaurants and excursion centers that offer guests a choice of traditional or modern cuisines. An unforgettable shopping experience in Roses Outlet Center, fun with a dose of adrenaline at the skiing and ziplining sites for the youngest - these are attractions that you can find only here in one place.
