    My friend Mario speaks German, but is not very good with English. Would do him good if he was forced to speak with someone.

  • Accommodation


    Accommodation is organized in a wooden cottage on the farm with 3 wooden houses and one concrete, near the edge of the forest, half an hour from Zagreb. We have a spare bedroom with 2 separate beds. We will provide all the food for three meals a day. My friend Mario lives there continuously, my father sometimes stays there and I sleep in Zagreb, but visit a couple of times every week, except when I dirve taxi or have tours or day trips(which is not very often this year)
