Famous in history for its mines and one of the first iron foundries Čabar, the little town in Gorski Kotar along the border with Slovenia, today offers tourists a completely different picture: it is one of the most forested regions of Croatia with numerous ecological and ethnological zones. If you are a hunter, angler, passionate horse rider, skier or you want to try snowshoeing - Čabar is the choice that you mustn't skip.
The Čabar region is ideal for getting to know the way of the old travellers: by walking. In the region there are as many as 5 educational trails, each of which one tells a particular part of the story of Čabar: The Steps of Tršća’s Miners trail speaks of this tradition, the Predator’s trail speaks about the wonderful world of the forest wilderness, the Tropetarska trail leads to a world of special panoramas, and Plodovi Gorja (Fruits of the Mountains) trail offers the culinary specialities of the region. If you think this is the end, there is a unique energy trail with 6 locations in nature which positively act on human health. Maybe it is also due to these acts that the Čabar region is also known as the homeland of a giant in memory of its most famous goliath Petar Klepac.
