Green Ring

Zagreb County, popularly known as Zagreb’s Green Ring, is located in the central part of northwestern Croatia. It is the sixth largest county in Croatia, but the second most populated.

Today, it is one of the fastest-growing economic regions in the country, and its rich history, tradition, culture, pristine nature, culinary offerings, and breath-taking landscapes make it an especially attractive destination for tourist excursions. Forming a ring around the Croatian capital, the county has succeeded in joining modern urban society with folk traditions and values. The area is also rich natural beauty, featuring a large number of protected areas, two nature parks (Medvednica and Žumberak – Samoborsko gorje), and the unique Crna Mlaka ornithological reserve. Hikers and nature lovers looking for refreshment can turn to any of the numerous local restaurants and well-equipped mountain lodges. Weekenders will find their destination among the more than 40 excursion areas and family farms, the wine routes of Plešivica, Zelinska, and Samoborska and the wine trails of Ivanić Grad. Cheese lovers can also delight in the Zagreb Regional Cheese Routes.
