Kumrovec and Desinić - Cycling Route 1

Stretching along a mere 12 km, the Cycling Route 1 is a true gem of a local route. Not only does it connect two important tourist destinations – Kumrovec with its unique Folk Village, and Veliki Tabor, the most beautiful castle in Krapina-Zagorje County – it also passes through a very beautiful landscape exclusively on local narrow paved roads with negligible motor traffic. The first 2.7 km of the route from Kumrovec to the north passes through a picturesque quiet valley. Afterwards, in Gornji Škrnik, you should turn left and go up a steep incline; then you can simply enjoy the most beautiful section of the route, riding along the ridge of the hill, all the way to the end of the route. Along the way, dense forests and meadows alternate with magnificent views. Upon arrival at the Miljana – Desinić County Road, there is a magnificent view of the Veliki Tabor castle. The last 700 metres to Veliki Tabor lead uphill, along a bumpy cobblestone-covered path, so you’re better off pushing your bicycle. Even so, the castle’s beauty and the spectacular view are well worth the effort.
