We leave at 8:30 am, or at another arranged time. First stop will be Kumrovec.
Kumrovec is known as Tito’s birthplace, but that is not the only reason to visit it. The idyllic village from the late 19th and early 20th century turned to the largest open air museum in Croatia. Kumrovec Staro Selo (Old Village) shows us artifacts related to the life and work of Zagorje peasants in the 19th/20th century. Visitors may see permanent ethnological exhibitions such as the Zagorje-style Wedding, the Life of Newlyweds, From Hemp to Linen, Blacksmith’s Crafts, Cartwright’s Craft, Pottery, From Grain to Bread, etc.
After Kumrovec we continue to Veliki Tabor.
Veliki Tabor castle is a romantic collage of turrets, towers and tiny windows, with sweeping views. It was originally built as a fortress in the 12th century. Most of the castle was built the 16th century by a Croatian aristocratic family of Rattkay, who kept it until 1793. As most of the castles, this one too has a secret, a legend that is revealed only to its visitors… Curious?
