Gorski Kotar is a mountainous region located in the heart of Croatia. It is just river Kupa that is dividing it from Slovenia on the north side of the region and if you are travelling from the south, before you enter Gorski Kotar you will go through Lika.
On the west side, there is the beautiful city of Rijeka located 44 km away from the center of Gorski Kotar. Zagreb, the capital city is only 124 km away which is an hour and a half if you decide to take the motorway which makes Gorski Kotar a very important part of Croatia as it is connected perfectly with all the other regions.
However, instead of being important as a transit region, Gorski Kotar has a lot more to offer for people traveling through the region. In case you missed it, Gorski Kotar can easily amaze you in any time of year. In winter it offers numerous possibilities of enjoining in the snow, during spring discover the nature by taking a walk down the canyon of river Kupa and Zeleni vir or you can visit canyon Kamacnik.
In summer feel free to enjoy the warm summer day but sleep tight in through the chilly nights.
Two unique places to stay in Gorski Kotar include Mountain house Skrad and Robinson tourism accommodation Robin’s Hood.
Mountain house Skrad, which has now been open a couple of years, gives you the possibility to stay overnight when traveling through Gorski Kotar or to spend a couple of days while exploring the region and provides visitors with a unique and rustic accommodation.
Mountain house Skrad has decided to keep the rustically interior and exterior design to provide visitors with that traditional feeling.
“If you decide to stay at Mountain house Skrad for a couple of days we suggest to visit surrounding places like Brod na Kupi, Skrad, Brod Moravice, Delnice, Ravna Gora or Vrbovsko. We also offer the possibility or renting the space for individuals as well as for large groups of up to 30 people,” staff suggest.
“You can use the open terrace and try to see the Alps if you have the luck to catch a bright and sunny day, while also doing some BBQ. If you decide to visit us in winter don’t worry, we have a common inner living room and kitchen. Reserve today and feel the spirit of Gorski Kotar.”
Another spot you can stay at is Robin’s Hood. Located in the small village of Zakrajc, Robin’s Hood is a stunning little house which will make you feel at one with nature.
“You can feel on your own skin how it is to sleep on hay and wake up in the middle of nature with a beautiful view of the mountains of Gorski Kotar. If you are lucky, from the terrace you will see roe and rabbits so do not forget your camera. Our recommendation is to take a bike because only on 10 min away is Zeleni Vir, beach Pritiski and river Kupa.”
The range of activities on offer will work up a hunger for some traditional food. Bistro Tron is the place for you and your family. Tron is a family restaurant offering a number of traditional dishes.
