Samobor's tourist office is on the town's spacious main square at Trg Kralja Tomisalva 5 (tel. 01/33-60-044; www.samobor.hr). The staff is used to foreign tourists and can help with maps and information about transportation, accommodations, dining, and even area history for Samobor, the Zumberak, and beyond.
Buses to Samobor run every half-hour or so from Zagreb's main station (hourly on Sun), which allows for a quick excursion out of the city. Buses stop north of the main square, but the short walk to the center is easy and pleasant. If you are traveling by car from Zagreb, take A3 south and follow the signs. Parking is outside the center. We clocked our auto trip to Samobor from Zagreb's southern border at 11 minutes using minor roads. Buses to villages in the Zumberak region are infrequent, and some areas are not reasonably reached without a car, though avid cyclists may find the route challenging.
From Samobor, it's easy to get to the Samobor Gorge on foot, where hiking trails abound. If you have your own transport, you can drive past the gorge into the Zumberak to challenging mountain trails in the north or to rustic villages, homes, and churches in the south.
