Wine and Gastronomy - Zagreb County

Far from the hustle and bustle of the city, the surroundings of Zagreb will provide every guest with peace and relaxation amid beautiful landscapes, as well as with top-quality wines and excellent food made with local ingredients.

You can sample countless traditional specialties, like ham baked in bread, Samobor salami with cottage cheese, stuffed cabbage with sauerkraut, or some of the local treats such as Samobor’s famous kremšnita (custard pie), rudarska greblica (cheese strudel), plešivički copanjak (spinach strudel), vrbovečka pera (cottage cheese and corn flour pie), or Jelačić šnite (chocolate, almond and walnut layer cake). This region is also filled with vineyards and wine cellars. Zagreb County is one of the most highly-respected winemaking regions in the country, with its special traditional varietals such as kraljevina crvena and purtugizec crni, which you can sample on any of the three wine routes.
