    What to Expect
    Hidden from the beautiful, historical center of Zagreb is the refreshing nature of Medvednica, which will be the destination of this tour. Medvednica is a Nature Park, which attracts many people from Zagreb, and they see it as a place where they can escape from the city crowd, summer heat and winter fog. Surprisingly to its proximity to the city, if you are lucky, you may even see a deer or a rabbit running through the woods!

    Tour starts by walking through a pedestrian tunnel that will lead you to 'Zagrebačka žičara', the Zagreb cable lift (now closed), and continue with a short walk through the forest trail 'Bliznec', which will lead to the natural spring where it is possible to take fresh water from the spring.

    From the spring, a bit steeper trail leads to 'Strmopeć' peak, where we will have a chance for a small rest with a nice view. This is the highest point of our tour and the trail leads down to a privately held part of the forest 'Damjanic', where chestnuts grow. Here, you can pick nice and healthy chestnut fruits while the guide shares the local family story about chestnuts. We will also have a short lesson about how they are prepared. Then, after a short rest, we will start the hike back to Zagreb.
