After spending time at the coast, we are regularly informed by our guests that, a stay in the region of Vrbovec and the surrounding area is total relaxation; a slower pace of life where you can appreciate the Croatian culture without the trappings of a tourist location. Do not think that you will be bored! For the men there is fishing, big game hunting, off road experiences and maybe even a flight in a micro-light. The ladies can be pampered at the modern and swish wellness centre which offers all the delights of a beauty and health spa; gym, fitness centre, facials, hairdressing, sauna or even a very special chocolate massage. All of this is offered at a very reasonable price. Many ice cream shops, bars and restaurants provide varied local cuisine made from food produced at many of the local farms. Sample the local delights of struckli (type of strudel made with cheese) or try a Cevapi (type of hamburger) at one of the numerous bars.
The open countryside provides excellent routes for taking a bike ride through the many vineyards and wooden wine houses where the locals enjoy a glass or two of home made brew! The wooded areas allow for horse riding excursions where the local flora and fauna can be enjoyed. Take a look at the volcanic hot springs located in the open fields or visit a Toplice where the warm mineral waters will soothe away your aches and pains. Swim in an Olympic sized outdoor pool.
Zagreb the capital of Croatia provides shops that are a match for any major city in Europe surrounded by clean streets, Restaurants offering traditional Croatian food, music and Croatian culture on the many pedestrian avenues. Enjoy a night at the opera or theatre. The ladies can even have a dress made by one of Croatia’s top fashion designers in only a few days and at a very reasonable price.
With more and more people looking to the area for cosmetic dentistry and cosmetic surgery Zagreb boasts a fine new cosmetic surgery centre where procedures can be accessed at a cost far less than you would expect to pay in the UK.
