Medvednica

When you wish to escape.

Zagreb is blessed with a location right next to Sljeme, an easy getaway that offers hiking trails and ski slopes of international quality. The upgrading of Sljeme is a recent phenomenon, much of it based on the global success of local skiing star Janica Kostelić and her sporting family. With her help and influence, Sljeme is now a regular fixture on the World Cup skiing circuit.

The citizens of Zagreb love Sljeme all year round. In winter they can use the snowboarding and ski training facilities, or take advantage of the twice-weekly night skiing programme. There are ski runs for three levels and even sledging in nearby Činovnička meadow. Some prefer to come in summer, when they can find shelter from the heat, and come to Sljeme for  walk and a picnic. Many love Sljeme in autumn, which brings out its carpet of colours; or spring, when the lower and surrounding slopes, named Medvednica, display many of the extensive (and occasionally rare) flora in full bloom.

Along with the development of Sljeme tourist infrastructure arrived, although many prefer the authentic atmosphere of the mountain lodges. The entire mountainside of Medvednica is yet another treasure of nature. Some 20 years ago, its higher western section was declared a nature reserve. In addition to the many trekking paths, a natural attraction is Veternica Cave, one of the largest in Croatia. Medvedgrad itself, is one of the largest medieval fortresses in Croatia, dating back to the 13th century. Some ten years ago it was reconstructed and given a new role – as a state memorial to the unknown defenders of the homeland.

Je suis désolée de n'avoir pas eu l'occasion de rester plus longtemps et de voir un peu plus, mais le lac Jarun et ses clubs m'ont impressionné. Il a tous les éléments pour y passer un bon moment.
