Town of Samobor – a picturesque medieval town with well-preserved townscape and long tourist tradition settled on the eastern slopes of Samobor Highlands and only a few kilometres from the Croatian-Slovenian border. A stroll through the Baroque centre settles an impressive image of history. Many famous Croatian poets and painters, sculptors and composers had fallen in love with this town.  

Samobor’s gastronomy – the region around the Holiday Home Wixa gained the reputation of an important gastronomic destination in Croatia.
