Varazdin Walking Tour + Arboretum Opeka + Ivancica mountain walks


This tour is for all nature and culture lovers. It combines some of the best things that Northern Croatia has to offer: one of the most gorgeous towns of Croatia - the 18th century capital and a hidden gem - town Varazdin, also then a unique and beautiful Arboretum Opeka park (one of the three arboretums of Croatia), and finally the silent (yet imposing) Ivancica mountain. On the latter is where originated many folk stories, and where medieval (and some ancient) ruins are. There a hike by a stream on the Elven path is to occur, passing by a Celtic stone ruin, in order to arrive to a waterfall deep in the forest.

Itinerary

This tour starts with a walking tour of Varazdin, during which we will see many of important places in its historical center. Places such as the Stancic square, King Tomislav square, Crafts square, the Old Town castle, the Ursulin church, and many more.

After the walking tour, we will go to the Arboretum Opeka, an old property of the noble Bombelles family, in order to get a glimpse into nobility lifestyle through the remnants of their heritage. There we will also see beautiful trees and plants from around the world.

Lastly, we will spend some time in the area of Ivancica mountain, one of the most significant mountain of the Northern Croatia, where we can go for walks in nature and visit interesting places relating to history, nature, and geology.
