For a beautiful day trip from Zagreb Croatia, take a drive northwards about an hour to the Zagorje region of Croatia. The area is full of rolling hills and vineyards, small quaint homes, medieval burgs, and castles. The best sights to see in this area are the city of Varaždin and Trakošćan castle.
We recently traveled from Zagreb to the northern part of Croatia’s Istria peninsula and visited some lesser-known cities. We visited Trsat, Rijeka, Lovran, and Opatija. This one-day trip was spectacular.
