Full description
Following a pickup from your accommodation in Zagreb, escape to the beautiful countryside of Northern Croatia and experience the local life for a day. Travel back in time and spend a day in the region of Medimurje, where the use of machines is negligible, and the focus lies on handmade goods. 

Stop in the quaint town of Žabnik and admire its beautiful watermills. Cross the Mura River on an old wooden ferry and experience how flour was made in the early days. Then, visit the local interactive 3D museum before heading back to the Mura River. Learn about the importance of the river for the people in this region.

In the afternoon, savor a local lunch with fresh vegetables and taste homemade pumpkin oil accompanied by a glass of wine. After lunch, head to Gornji Hrascan to visit the last blacksmith whose family has been honing their knife-skills craft for over a century.
