Franciscan Monastery Klanjec

In the center of Klanjec there is a great building of the Franciscan Monastery. It was built between 1630 and 1686 by the Nikola and his cousin Sigismund Erdödy. Beside the sacral art treasure, the monastery also keeps two restored metal sarcophagi of exceptional artistic value with the remains of Sigismund Erdödy (1639), and Emerik Erdödy (1690). The Monastery is open for visitors by prior announcement.

Do & See

For the escape from daily routine and obligations we recommend a program, which will fill your batteries. The number of riding terrains in Croatian Zagorje is great, and if you ride into any corner, the experience of landscape beauty, finely ruffled hills with mosaic forests, vineyards, Zagorje villages and fields, partially separated by river valleys, is unspeakable. Picturesque and hilly Croatian Zagorje is suitable for cycling. Zagorje abounds in tourist-recreational cycling routes that are adapted for the widest range of users, with a special accent on recreational cyclists, families with kids and juniors. If you are looking for something different, the greatest pleasure is to watch Zagorje from a balloon or just to come and enjoy a family picnic on a meadow and run barefoot over the mowed fragrant grass.
