Sveti Kriz Zacretje


There are few settlements that have managed to preserve their distinctive urban or rural physiognomy as the Holy Cross Zachretje, a place located on a hill in the valley of the river Krapinchica, where it joins the streams Shemnica and Pachetina. Along the road Zagreb - Macelj, almost halfway between Zabok and Krapina, on a plateau of a low hill. The first part of the name of the place, the Holy Cross, originated from the church dedicated to the Holy Cross. There are two versions of the second part of the name of the place Zachretje. The place itself is located on elevated ground surrounded by meadows. On the surfaces of today's hayfields was once a beautiful oak forest called "oak". The people called such a grove "devil". Therefore, they would simply say: "Let's go for the devil" and in time the Conception was created.

I learnt of how the concept of " Let's go for the devil" was created, our tour guide told us that there was once a beautiful oak that people called the devil. The meadows surrounding the elevated grounds glorified the magical beauty of nature. Will definitely come back .
I came to this place for an active vacation. I went hiking for hours. I rented a bike which I used for cycling around the town. It was great to feel relaxed. I made friends who were funny and they made me laugh a lot. I enjoyed my stay here.
A place surrounded with meadows, a fresh and captivating change in scene for any person living in the city. Interacting with the inhabitants and getting to hear some of the legends of the area make sthe visit a little bit interesting. I would recommend it to anyone just seeking to go somewhere away from the city.
very good!!!
