Samobor has existed as a free royal town since 1242, according to a document of endowment by King Béla IV. It is a small town in the north of Croatia, 20 kilometres away from the Croatian capital and 5 km from the Slovenian border. It is located on the slopes of the Samobor mountains, at the entrance to the romantic valley of Gradna stream. This is a medieval town of Baroque architecture, surrounded by a wide mountain range from the town of Okić to Plešivica, Oštrca and Japetić to Žumberak. There is the especially attractive Anin dol and Grgosova spilja, the most beautiful caves in north-western Croatian. This picturesque town with its preserved city centre has a long excursion and tourist tradition and is the cradle of mountaineering in Croatia.

Charming little town
Samobor is a charming little town to spend a night. Nice bars, good restaurants, and quiet. We were lucky enough to be there during a jazz festival. And you must try Samoborska kremšnita, it's delicious!

We liked the town
The location where we stayed is great, in the center of the old town but a bit off the main road. We liked the town. There are many good restaurants within easy walking distance in town. Also, early October is the Samobor music festival - we attended very good concerts each night, at venues only a 5 miute walk away.
