Sitting on the southern flanks of Mount Medvednica and looking over the suburbs of Zagreb, Medvedgrad Castle is one of Croatia’s most important medieval fortresses. It was constructed in the mid-13th century to protect the growing city from invasion by the Tatars, who were warlike tribes under the rule of Mongolia in the Far East. The castle changed hands many times over the centuries, and by the mid-15th century was in the hands of the Counts of Celje, who terrorized the local area, plundering neighboring villages and towns. Following their downfall and a disastrous earthquake in 1590, the castle was abandoned and fell in to decay before being rediscovered in 1979 and slowly nursed back to life. Today the defense walls stand once more, encircling the carefully restored stone chapel of St Philip and St Jacob, the Great Palace, fortified towers and the Oltar Domovine (Homeland Altar) memorial to all the war dead of Croatia, made of stone from regions across the country and bearing an eternal flame. There are magical summer concerts at the castle in July and the last weekend in September sees an annual medieval pageant; a new visitor center is in the planning.

Medvednica (Sljeme) E-bike Tour

Medvednica (Sljeme) E-bike Tour

This tour is unique because of electric bikes. My wish is that travelers see everything and not get tired, which is option with e-bikes. Even better thing is that those are mountain bikes, so this tour will be everything but exhausting. Each bike has bottle holder so if someone is not into wearing the backpack they can put their bottle on the bike. We were thinking about our guests safety so helmets are included in price. Since I am photography lover my travelers can take as much photos as they want, or I can take it for them. There is an option of me recording the tour for you with GoPro camera.
