Welcome to Samobor, city where history meets the culture, influencing the way of living in an unique way, still, within easy reach and just 20 kilometers from Zagreb, the capital city of Croatia.
The connection with capital city is crucial for the characteristics of today's Samobor - a modern, developed, financially stable city, desirable for new investments.
However, Samobor never became only the suburb of the capital, but has preserved identity, natural beauties, culture, heritage and tradition.
So many artists, famous poets and painters, sculptors and composers fell in love with Samobor. They came here to create, but also, to celebrate the beauties of this warm city in their works and creations.
They would usually come back, because there is so much to find out about Samobor, interesting stories, places, people, hidden beauties, tastes and scents.
Slowly, but surely, Samobor has gained the reputation of an important Croatian and regional gourmet destination, with a perfect balance of traditional and modern recepies, food and wine.
There are many reasons to fall in love with Samobor – beautiful mountains ideal for hiking, sledging or running, green meadows and floral gardens, cozy restaurants and mountain lodges.
This vision was the leading idea as we were creating the official web site of the City of Samobor. We tried to create a site where You can easily find all the information within the City administration, but at the same time, enjoy the beauties of Samobor, which we want to develop as important tourist destination in continental Croatia.
We hope that we will succeed in this intention, and all of Your questions, advice and well-intentioned criticism will encourage us to work even better, more modern and transparent, and as a result, closer to our citizens and visitors.
