made of snow
The incredible diversity of Croatia is full of surprises as rewarding as its skiing. Slide down the gentle slopes of Platak, near Rijeka, an ideal location to spend a weekend with the family, or simply enjoy the spectacle of the Snow Queen Trophy in Medvednica and its highest peak Sljeme at 1,035 metres (3,396 ft), just ten minutes from the capital city of Zagreb. This World Cup Alpine Ski Race is named in honour of the famous skier, the Croatian Janica Kostelić. She won four gold medals and two silver medals in the Olympic Games, if you want to beat her record now you know where to start!
