What is beauty without brain? The great German philosopher said it is a controversy or a painful shame! Croatia is all beautiful, so it is also beautiful its continental part. This part of Croatia is dominated by the economy and the concentration of educated people and technology. Here we primarily think of Zagreb, the main and largest city of Croatia, where every year 80,000 students study! Located under Medvednica mountain, Zagreb offers all that is expected from metropolis. Beautiful city views, charming Gornji grad with preserved old town core, the unsurpassed Dolac market with unique offer of agricultural products, numerous theaters and museums, nightlife and possibility to go hike Medvednica. All this can be experienced by choosing private accommodation in rooms or apartments through direct contact with accommodation owners without agency fees.
Behind Medvednica lies Hrvatsko Zagorje, a hilly part known for wine production and fine food. You just have to visit one of many wine roads, where you can taste many different tastes. Apart from the free-minded spirit, this region is known for the fact that here are born Croatian presidents. The most famous was Tito, whose birthplace Kumrovec has a memorial center. First croatian president Tudjman was also born here, whose birthplace is small village Veliko Trgovisce. Cheap and affordable private accommodation and many holiday homes for rent makes Hrvatsko Zagorje an inevitable part of the continental Croatia's tourist offer.
North of Zagorje we find the baroque town of Varaždin, which is especially nice to visit during the Špancir festival. Then its Baroque spirit is revived by thousands of visitors enjoying the rich offer of concerts and other cultural events and offering local products. Close to Varaždin is Međimurje, small region of Croatia bounded by the Drava and Mura rivers, which offer similar gourmet offerings along with similar winding wine roads as well as in Zagorje. Of course, the best way to experience all this is through direct contact with the owners of accommodation. Along with all the natural beauties, here the gentle and good-natured people are the greatest wealth of this area.
And finally Slavonia - the soul of Croatia! Bordered by Drava, Sava and Danube rivers, Slavonia is situated in the eastern part of Croatia. It is the most developed agricultural part of Croatia. Slavonia is arable land of Croatia but much more than that. Throughout history, Croatia was called the kingdom of Slavonia, Dalmatia and Croatia. Plenty of plains are sown in a variety of agricultural cultures on the slopes of Papuk and Krndija.

For example Osijek and Slavonia have significantly less precipitation than Zagreb and Croatian Zagorje.
