Walk Around and Explore
Samobor’s town centre is relatively small and one of the first things you should do in the city is to explore the area on foot.
An excellent starting point is Samobor’s main square, Trg Kralja Tomislava, translating to King Tomislav Square. The open space is brimming with boutique shops, striking pastel-hued buildings, and cafés full of locals chatting over tea and coffee. This area is one of the best in the city for eating and drinking, which we’ll cover a bit later.
From the Old Town square, you’ll spot the yellow Church of St. Anastasia. Be sure to wander over to observe the architecture up close. From the church, you’ll be treated to a wonderful view of all the friends and families meeting in the main square below.
Navigate further up the hill, and you’ll come across the Franciscan Monastery, standing out with its orange and white shades. Whether you have the chance to glimpse into the church or monastery or not, both buildings are worth a visit.
Don’t forget to amble alongside Samobor’s Gradna River, either. The brook is modest in size, perfectly fitting the nature of the little city. You’ll come across plenty of delicate, wooden bridges that wouldn’t look out of place on a postcard.
