Spending my summers as a child at my grandparents house at Plitvice Lakes National Park area and being active on a bike for most of my life, seemed as a perfect match for creating the experience for everybody that is in to nature, wildlife, urban destination exploring and sport, spiced with local products. For 15 years I worked as a travel guide across Europe and 5 years as outdoor guide for hiking, cycling, river and sea kayak in Croatia.

This is a really cool experience if you are into abandoned buildings. Hrvoje is knowledgeable and has a great dry sense of humor. I had a great time learning about this area and Croatian culture and politics as well. Hrvoje has great language and conversational skills and instantly feels like your friend. I definitely would recommend hearing about this area with someone knowledgeable like Hrvoje.

This was a really special tour. If you are into abandoned buildings, I can't recommend it enough. Hrvoje is great tour guide. I also have to say, the food tasting after was amazing. Everyone was welcoming and we actually came back the next day for a lunch. Their burger was the biggest I have ever seen, but sooo tasty. Thank you Hrvoje! :)
