Žumberak Mountains reviews
It was really lovely seeing all of the nature.
Easy path, well marked. There are no crowds on the trails, unlike other mountains in Northern Croatia. (Medvednica, Ivančica, Samoborsko gorje from Samoborska side)
The Slapnica Valley is something wonderful, enchanting, ideal for a walk, not a demanding paradise for the soul and body.
Kilometers of beautiful nature and peace. A perfect place to rest, enjoying the streams and forests that adorn this area.
