Roads of the smallest towns in the world

THE HIGHWAYS AND BYWAYS OF ISTRIA Many civilizations and cultures have come and gone in Istria, all of them leaving much more than mere stories of history. In this small area you will come upon many tiny towns. Some were established as fishing villages, some are fortified medieval towns, and some date from antiquity. Perched atop almost every peak of inland Istria they all have their own characteristic streets, square, church and town loggia. Discover why Hum is called the smallest town in the world, and what inspired the French writer Jules Verne to locate the plot of one of his novels in Pazin, and find out why the 17th-century town of Dvigrad simply disappeared from the face of the earth - and much more. You should not pass them by, whether you set off into the Istrian mainland or journey along the coastline. Whether travelling by car, cycling or walking, take a detour and do visit those small, historical communities; allow yourself to enjoy the hospitality of their inhabitants, who will gladly recommend where you can savour the best local cuisine, or buy locally produced olive oil, wine and honey. The gates of these tiny towns have been open for hundreds of years; they have beckoned many a visitor down the years. Today, they are beckoning you... welcome!

CITY OF ZAGREB

a town tailored to the human scale Zagreb, the capital of Croatia, ranks among the oldest towns in Central Europe, a fact borne out by written sources dating from 1094, when a diocese was established in this area. It grew between the mountain of Medvednica and the River Sava. Its old core is comprised of medieval Gradec – today the seat of the Croatian Government and Sabor, and Kaptol, the seat of the Archbishop. Following the administrative unification of the two entities and the surrounding settlements, which took place in the 19th century, the city experienced a surge in the construction of prestigious buildings, squares, fountains, and the establishment of beautiful park-woods and parks which today make it one of the greenest cities in Europe. A delight to walk through, the capital of Croatia attracts visitors with the vivacious atmosphere of its streets, numerous coffee shops, restaurants and shopping streets. If you are looking for a break on your way home from or to some tourist destination by the sea, one that would freshen up your journey, then Zagreb is the place, and it is ready for you. Welcome!

THE KVARNER ROAD

The meeting of different worlds is but a feeble comparison to that which one can see and feel in majestic Opatija and Crikvenica, sea-oriented Rijeka, in Senj carved in stone. And the diversity does not end there. It carries on to our largest islands of Krk and Cres, the healing island of Lošinj, sandy Susak, to flower- covered Ilovik and the wooded island of Rab. And the common theme to them all? It is perhaps that which long ago, in the 19th century, was recognized by European aristocracy who chose this particular area, blessed with a mild climate and lush Mediterranean vegetation, for their holidays. It is thanks to them that the first luxurious villas and hotels came to be built, and foundations of the first Croatian rivieras were laid: Opatija, Crikvenica, Novi Vinodol... But the illustrious members of the aristocracy were not the only world travellers; the mariners of Lošinj also sailed all over the world, bringing back from their voyages over 80 species of exotic plants. The gardens of small Istrian towns are filled with flowers, and the landscapes are resplendent with woods, olive groves and shrubs of sage, rosemary and lavender are all around you wherever you may go. Welcome to the Fragrant Gates of the Adriatic.

DUBROVNIK Cavtat

Start from Karlovac and venture into experiences of the sources of nature. It is not long before the low-lying landscapes are replaced by forested hills and mountains criss-crossed with rich springs of the cleanest of European waters that are now quenching the thirst of people across the oceans. Do cross the winding bridge of the town of Slunj, because a view from there allows you to see the might of nature that man has tamed to his needs. The multitude of sparkling waterfalls heralds the routes of the sources of nature, which reveal themselves in all their glory at the Plitvice Lakes. The beauty and freshness of the experience of this part of the world’s natural heritage, combined with traditional cuisine, are a very good reason for a break. The area around the town of Josipdol is a rich hunting game reserve. Experienced lovers of skiing will head towards Ogulin, and beginners towards Brinje. For those seeking a direct encounter with silent and calming nature, Otočac and the River Gacka valley is the right choice. And a mere 45-minute car ride from Gospić, in Karlobag, you can enjoy a swim in the sea, which is always cooled by waters flowing in from beneath the mountains.

The routes of Croatian rulers NORTH DALMATIAN TRAIL

The Routes of Croatian Rulers take you on a journey through time, through the old Croatian towns that once were the capitals of the state – Nin, Knin, Biograd and Šibenik, to the beginnings of Croatian statehood between the 7th and 12th centuries, evoking the spirits of ancient Croatian rulers and warriors. The journey begins in the north, on the white, rocky slopes at the foot of Velebit, from where the vista opens up on the surreal landscape of the most intricately indented of all the Croatian islands, the island of Pag. And Pag has lovely coves and beaches, just like the centres of modern tourism, but here they are surrounded by an untouched natural environment. The autochthonous lace of Pag is known and valued far and wide, as indeed is Pag cheese, its secret component being the bora, which adds the salt which fills the air which gives it its specific and delectable flavour. To follow in the routes of Croatian rulers means to witness the diversity of experience offered by towns thousands of years old: Zadar , for instance, is 3000 years old; Vodice – a vibrant and modern tourist centre; the national parks; the picturesque settlements of the Dalmatian hinterland; of Ravni kotari and the islands. That very special Mediterranean atmosphere enriches the soul, while the gastronomic delicacies cannot be resisted by even the most demanding of connoisseurs.

The routes once blazed by mail coaches bring to life the spirit of old historical roads which brought about the economic development of this area. They take you through wide grazing lands and plains, along forest tracks, mountain slopes, river valleys and through picturesque, hilly landscapes. Watched over by numerous mountain peaks, centuries old forests, restless rivers, silent lakes and mysterious caves, there open out before you countless opportunities for both rest and the challenge of adventure. Allow your senses to feel unspoiled nature, get to know the cultural heritage and experience the history surrounding you on your way to the River Kupa in Čabar, in the traditional architecture in Vrbovsko, the history of Karlovac - the town of four rivers, the small, picturesque town of Samobor. In tune with the season enrich your holiday with hiking, cycling, swimming in a river or lake, hunting or fishing, water sports or winter sports. Open your senses to nature, savour the landscapes which, once upon a time, were criss-crossed by mail coaches bringing news both good and bad and ferrying riches and passengers.

Šestinska umbrella (Šestine umbrella) - a part of traditional folk costume characteristic of the surroundings of Zagreb and which was regularly carried until the 1960s. Today, it is carried at folklore and similar events. The greatest concentration of these colourful umbrellas can be seen at Dolac – Zagreb’s cult openair market. Pepper cookie – Aromatic cookie made of flour, honey, walnuts and pepper, rectangular in shape, decorated with reliefs of folklore motifs. As a traditional Croatian food it is odd, indeed contradictory – but then, so is Croatian history as a whole. A sweet and peppery morsel for many a foreign palate.

Routes of ancient cultures CENTRAL DALMATIAN ROUTE

Follow the fragrance of cypress trees and rosemary down the road built by the ancient Romans to equally ancient Tragurium, where its symphony in stone – each portal, church, palace and balcony – is sure to stir the imagination and tell a legend or two, a story of love or hope. Discover why Roman emperors chose Salona for the capital of their province, and why one of them, Diocletian, fell to the charms of the place where today rises the city of Split. Feel the spirit of the alkars of Sinj, the defiance and longing of Dalmatian songs sung in Omiš; take a break on the beaches of Makarska beneath the towering rugged rocks of Biokovo, and then set sail down the blue routes of the ancient Greek mariners to the sunny isles offering a wealth of wonders, the crystal blue sea, sun-bleached white stone, lavender and grape vines which were given the gift of life by hard working hands that literally wrested land from stone. And then, they transformed the sumptuous warmth of the south into delectable wines.

Routes of old sea captains SOUTH DALMATIAN ROUTE

Trails of the court fairies THE NORTHERN ROUTE

The trails of subterranean secrets THE NORTH-EASTERN ROUTE

The routes of the sea captains of old traverse an area of turbulent history and struggles for freedom, an area where trade, seafaring and shipping have developed since ancient times, where life has always been lived in harmony with the sea and the rivers. Get to know the ancient home of seafaring on the peninsula of Peljšac in the Maritime Museum in Orebić, the cradle of sea captains; in Korčula - the birthplace of Marco Polo; in the historical city of Dubrovnik, which for centuries was an independent republic, and in the continuation of that treasured tradition in the modern-day sea and river ports of Ploče and Metković. In these parts nature has crafted the wondrous landscapes of the Neretva delta, a meeting place between the river and the sea, the lowlands and the karst, the lake and the wetlands; of the eternal beauty of the Mljet National Park, with its lakes; the Elafiti islands of Koločep, Lopud and Šipan, with their Renaissance atmosphere; the diverse, mellow landscapes of Konavle. Look towards the open sea where fierce battles once were fought, where freedom was defended and guarded, and towards which merchantmen ploughed the waters with billowing sails.

A long time ago members of the upper classes, prominent gentlemen and the nobility, seeking to satisfy their aesthetic cravings and earthly comforts, took great care to select the right locations for their castles, manor houses and curias. They then surrounded them with gardens, pleasure parks and copses. The court fairies will take you through the picturesque hills and colourful fields to Novi Dvori, in Zaprešić - the Jelačić estate, or to the imposing town of Veliki Tabor, near Desinić, romantic Trakošćan, the proud Zrinski castle in Čakovec, the castle of two towers in Gornja Rijeka, and numerous other castles and manor houses dotting the hills of this area, which once were the hub of life, work, cultural and political activities. Step into the past by visiting examples of rural architecture in Kumrovec, get to know the world of our primeval ancestors in Krapina, and enjoy naive art in Hlebine – the cradle of this form of art. Let the court fairies tell you the history and take you for a romantic journey to long gone days of splendour and glory of the nobility.

Some secrets wait for millions of years to be discovered. They were left deep in the rocks by creatures that lived in primeval times, when this part of the world was an ocean. Ivanić Grad revealed its secret to the world. It is quite unusual to walk the Trail of Subterranean Secrets and experience a life that was halted such a long time ago. And then, through encounters with the rural folk, who are the last example of a now almost forgotten, modest way of life, amid mellow nature where grazing land and hills alternate, where time is reckoned by the sun, and where numerous fish ponds and hunting grounds beckon one to come and enjoy it all in good company, you will discover the natural side of your being. A barbecue by a fish pond is quite something else than in nearby and familiar urban centres like Bjelovar, Đurđevac, Virovitica, Garešnica, Kutina or Novska. Downstream from Sisak the River Sava soaks the woods and wetlands of the wondrous Lonjsko polje (Lonja range), thus creating a royal cradle for fish and many rare species of bird. Nestling among the beautiful mountains is an agricultural area which offers food to remember, and where the local dishes can be savoured in, among other places, Vrbovec, Bjelovar, Đurđevac and Veliki Zdenci. And Daruvar and Lipik practically cannot recall the time when in their midst one’s soul could not be fortified by superb wines and thermal waters.

Trails of the Pannonian Sea THE SLAVONIA ROUTE

Once an endless blue expanse of a sea, today it glimmers in gold, and its islands are green mountains. All that is left of the great waters are tiny shells in the fertile fields of Slavonia. But waters are still here – three great rivers, the Sava, the Drava and the Danube hold this region in their embrace. People knew that in this area, to which nature has been so generous, they would have a good home. But the long-gone Pannonian Sea did leave its trace: a single saltwater spring in Bizovec. Its temperature (96 0C) is quite unique in Europe. This alluring natural environment was greatly appreciated by the nobility, so much that they built their castles here, indulged in hunting, fishing and, of course, the wines – which were just as much appreciated in the courts of Europe, and savoured at coronation ceremonies. World famous are the wine cellars of Ilok and Kutjevo, also the oldest in the world. Now we can all enjoy all the magic of times gone by. Following the Trails of the Pannonian Sea, discover the lovely songs of the area accompanied by tambouritzas, while the parades of people dressed in their colourful and festive folk costumes in numerous folklore events present an amazing part of our cultural heritage.
