The town of Čabar covers an area of a quarter of the entire Gorski kotar area, which makes it one of the greenest and most wooded parts of Croatia. The Čabar area has a population of about 4000.
In Čabar, be sure to visit the Zrinski Castle from the 17th century, which today houses an interesting Local History collection. A Roman defensive wall was built in the area of the town of Čabar during Roman times. During the time of Peter Zrinski in 1651, a blacksmith shop and a foundry were opened in Čabar.
This northwest part of Gorski Kotar, along the border with Slovenia, is an excellent choice for an active vacation and enjoying the beautiful mountain nature.
