Samobor, a town with a population of about 15,000 and with a long-standing excursion and tourist tradition. It is situated 20 km from Zagreb, on the slopes of the Samobor hills. The town is a gem of Baroque architecture, and is the most popular excursion destination for Zagreb residents, who pay visits to enjoy its charm, natural beauty, museums, restaurants and excursion sites. From 1809 to 1813, this was the seat of Napoleon’s Illyrian province. Many excellent old recipes date back to this period, including today’s famed Samobor specialities, muštarda and bermet. Another delicacy that is not to be missed is the Samobor kremšnita.
