Exploring Croatia: We visited Ivana´s House of Fairy Tales in Ogulin🌟

 Hello lovelies!

How´s everyone doing?

I´m back with a new post! It´s been quite some time since my last post, I know, but I´m really happy to be posting again😊

I want to tell you all about our recent family trip to Ogulin, a town in north- western Croatia, situated in Karlovac County. The reason for our trip was visit to Ivana´s House of Fairy Tales, a unique multimedia and interactive visitor´s centre which celebrates fairy tales and their makers.

"Based on the principles of knowledge, creativity and the use of new technologies, the centre presents the fairy tales of Ivana Brlić-Mažuranić (born in Ogulin in 1874), Croatia's foremost writer of fairy tales, as well as the fairy tales of many other writers from both Croatia and the world.

Located within the mediaeval Frankopan Castle, Ivana's House of Fairy Tales consists of a permanent multimedia exhibition, a library, a multifunctional space for workshops, and a souvenir shop. 


It was a really fun experience and I definitely would recommend visiting Ivana´s House of Fairy Tales, especially to families with kids, but not only!
We bought two books in the little souvenir shop,  "Cudnovate Zgode Segrta Hlapica", kids tale for my son (I read this book when I was his age), and Ivana´s personal diaries (which I thought would be something interesting to read for my Mum and myself!)

Afterwards we grabbed something to eat at a local fast food "Strauss" (it was recommended to us by locals). They have delicious hamburgers, french fries, grilled vegetables, and "cevapcici".

My hubby recommends you try "Balkan burger", and I really liked my grilled vegetables with mushrooms.

By the end of the day, just before returning home, we visited nearby lake "Sabljaci". It was really nice to just sit by the lake, play cards and enjoy the scenery!

I filmed a short instagram vlog that you can watch here, and longer version of this vlog will soon be uploaded on my youtube channel 💋

I hope you get a chance to visit Ogulin someday and enjoy all these fun activities that we did!

Let me know if you already visited Ivana´s House of Fairy Tales, or lake Sabljaci, and how did you like it?

I´ll talk to you soon!
