Full day excursion in Međimurje (from 9:00h do 17:00h)

In the northernmost part of Croatia, between the Drava and Mura, with green hills and rich plains, there is a charming little place called Međimurje. Both simple and splendid, its uniqueness has always amazed people and it proudly bears the name of „Cvjetnjak Hrvatske” (Croatia’s flower garden). Just a step away from major European cities, the perfect combination of traditional and modern with a lot to offer has evolved from rich cultural-historical foundations. Not surprisingly the most densely populated area in Croatia is home to pozojs (dragons), the purest gold in the world which shines from river sandbars, excellent food accompanied by extraordinary wine.
