Vuglec Breg – A New Tourist Complex Within Reach of Zagreb

vuglec-breg-zagorje1A tourist complex, the Vuglec Breg Hotel & Resort, is to be opened soon in the village of Škaricevo, with about forty kilometres from Zagreb, in Hrvatsko Zagorje, and in within reach of Krapinske toplice.

The overall area of the complex, scheduled for opening at the end of May of this year, extends over 130,000 square metres. It will feature eight buildings, restored in the traditional spirit and in keeping the standards of top-notch tourism.

Accommodations are to be organised in four indigenous Zagorje houses, known locally as “Hiže”, with a total capacity of 30 beds.

Besides the lodging and catering, the future complex is to offer a conference hall, wine cellar, two tennis courts, a horse stable and numerous walking paths through vineyards and forests.

And, to better evoke the tradition of this northern Croatian region, a bower has been built featuring an old-fashioned bread-baking oven and barbecue grill. Also renovated is the old well that once served to supply water and an old Zagorje “Klet” – a traditional Zagorje cabin used to this day by the local inhabitants for get-togethers and wine tasting.

Ahead of the opening of the entire tourist complex the “Pri kleti” restaurant has opened its doors for business. The rustic ambient of this catering facility is a setting for dishes prepared for guests using old forgotten recipes, made from season-ripe home-made produce and groceries from the neighbourhood.

Adjacent to the restaurant is a summer terrace surrounded by vineyards where specialities are to be served from the genuine bread-oven and wood-burning grill.
