The old town of Đurđevac is beautiful remnant of the past. It is a museum on a top floor, and a restaurant on th ebase floor. It definetely worth spending some time here.

Place you have to visit when you are near Picok City, it has a long and proud history, you can learn about legend of Picok, eat dealicous food or drink a good beer. Also very good for children, there is Croatian Sahara few meters away.

?? NOT ENOUGH FOOD! This is the review for the restaurant. It's like this, in a good restaurant the food needs to be tasty and it needs to be plentiful. These are my 2 parameters. For me, price is only on 3rd place. This restaurant immediately jumped on to charge you well for the food, and somehow they forgot that the food was supposed to be tasty and that there was supposed to be enough of it. The waiters are CONFUSED. Whatever I asked them they shrugged and said “I don’t know”. There is beautiful nature around, you can have a nice walk and sightsee, there is parking nearby which is free. So my recommendation is, come for a walk, look at the camels and BRING SANDWICHES. . ?? PREMALO HRANE! Ovo je recenzija za restoran. Znači ovako, u dobrom restoranu se mora pojesti fino i moraš se moći dobro najesti. To su moja 2 parametra. Mora biti fino i mora biti obilato. Cijena mi je tek na 3.mjestu. Ovaj restoran je odmah skočio na to da vam hranu dobro naplate, a nekako su zaboravili da hrana bude fina i da je bude dovoljno. Konobari su ZBUNJENI. Što god da sam ih pitao su slijegali ramenima i govorili "ne znam". Okolo je lijepa priroda, može se super prošetat i vidjeti, ima parkinga koji je besplatan. Tako da vam je moja preporuka, došite se prošeteti, pogledajte deve i PONESITE SENDVIČE.

Wieskirche

The Pilgrimage Church of Wies (Wieskirche) is an oval rococo church, designed in the late 1740s by Dominikus Zimmermann. It is located in the foothills of the Alps in the municipality of Steingaden.

The sanctuary of Wies is a pilgrimage church extraordinarily well-preserved in the beautiful setting of an Alpine valley, and is a perfect masterpiece of Rococo art and creative genius, as well as an exceptional testimony to a civilization that has disappeared.

The hamlet of Wies, in 1738, is said to have been the setting of a miracle in which tears were seen on a simple wooden figure of Christ mounted on a column that was no longer venerated by the Premonstratensian monks of the Abbey. A wooden chapel constructed in the fields housed the miraculous statue for some time. However, pilgrims from Germany, Austria, Bohemia, and even Italy became so numerous that the Abbot of the Premonstratensians of Steingaden decided to construct a splendid sanctuary.
