With their preserved nature, rich forests, meadows and pastures, mountains and plains, springs and streams, caves and archaeological and religious sites, Žumberak and Samobor Hills have attracted many climbers and hikers seeking their oasis of peace and beauty for decades.

In a hilly empire of greenery and turbulent streams lies Budinjak, whose inhabitants lived 3,000 years ago and who were among the first in the region that mastered the processing of iron. Numerous iron objects testify to the enviable skill of the then craftsmen. Two bronze dukes’ helmets, found in the burrow graves, represent especially valuable and rare findings. Around 2000 years ago, the Celtic tribe Latobici lived at the nearby locality of Bratelji, attested by the interesting stone tombs. Surrender to the secrets of the past in the embrace of the preserved nature!
