After the visit of the visit of such elegant castle, you shall continue your way to the town of Varazdin. Its center is a showcase of scrupulously restored baroque architecture and well-tended gardens and parks. It was once Croatia’s capital and its most prosperous city, which explains the extraordinary refinement of its buildings. During your free time you can wonder the streets, do some last-minute shopping or take a bite of delicious food. In the late afternoon, you shall make your way back to Zagreb, to prepare for the New Year's Eve Gala Dinner (optional) and overnight

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Today after late breakfast, and some free time, join your fellow group members for an optional excursion to Samobar. Samobar, a medieval town of baroque architecture is the oldest and the most attractive excursion destination for Zagreb residents, holiday-makers and tourists. The picturesque town with a French flair will charm you with its architecture, its laid-back atmospheres, its flavours and colours. Return back to your hotel for some free time, where you can enjoy Zagreb’s advent markets before the evening’s buffet dinner (optional) and overnight.

Today, after breakfast and checkout (safe luggage room will be made available), head towards Ljubljana for your final excursion of this wonderful tour. Slovenia's capital and largest city is one of Europe's greenest and most liveable capitals. Car traffic is restricted in the centre, leaving the leafy banks of the emerald-green Ljubljanica River, which flows through the city's heart, free for pedestrians and cyclists. Slovenia's master of early-modern, minimalist design, Jože Plečnik, graced Ljubljana with beautiful bridges and buildings as well as dozens of urban design elements such as pillars, pyramids and lamp posts, which exist solely to make the city even prettier. Attractive cities are often described as 'jewel boxes', and here the name really fits. In the evening, head back to Zagreb for your farewell buffet dinner before taking your private coach transfer back to the airport for your flight check in departing at 01:35 hrs on Thursday the 3rd of January.
