Day 3 – OPTIONAL EXCURSION: ZAGREB SURROUNDINGS
Get to know more about Zagreb's beautiful surroundings. We will take you to Karlovac, only about 40 km from Zagreb.
Karlovac was a boating town, and even to this day, the houses along the Kupa River have trails leading to the riverbank, and wooden boats are a common sight. Upon arrival in Karlovac, we will board the grain boat ‘Zora’, a replica of the boats that used to sail the Kupa River in the 18th century.
The boat will take you through different periods of time and show you the value of the ancient oak it was built from. The ride lasts an hour and a half, complete with tasting homemade flavored liqueurs and traditional homemade cookies. The boatmen will entertain you with stories of the boat about the area’s history, sunken boats, and the rich flora and fauna. Visitors can enjoy the ride accompanied by traditional music, buy traditional products, drinks, jams, or unique souvenirs.
They will also see the remnants of the old railway bridge destroyed during the Croatian War of Independence, the Pauline monastery, and the church of St. Mary of the Snows in Kamensko.
After returning to Karlovac, there is an orientation tour and transfer back to Zagreb. Overnight stay at the hotel.
