  • Description


    Hello dear workawayers,

    We are inspired by nature and handcraft works to improve the confort of this incredible place. We intend to build various wooden constructions such as a Dome for the campside, a Tepee for the labyrinth part, a treehouse and so on,... We are located half an hour from the main city Zagreb in middle of the nature on the hill of the mountain Plesivice. Surrounded only by nature, we are just a step away from the village and 10 min from a city wich has all you could need!
    We share respect, working knowledge and our culture to whoever feels like doing the same. We use our brain to find ecological, more practical and smart sollutions for our needs.
