Sunday- the roadtrip part 1

Hi everyone,I hope you are all doing well 🙂

Today, I went on a little roadtrip with my family to Zagorje, a county in northern Croatia which is known for its natural beauty and historical culture. We visited a pilgrim sanctuary in Marija Bistrica(founded in 11th century) that has been the keeper of an old Marian shrine(which dates back to 16th century) and the Trakošćan castle( built in 13th century).

Before I show you the photos,little disclaimer. The weather was quite chilly and foggy so the photos might seem a bit paler than usual. And also, as I could not use anything but my cellphone(without flash) in the Trakošćan castle(turned museum) quality of the photos is not the best(mind you, some photos do look nice and that is because I remembered to turn the night mod on halfway through our tour). I hope you will enjoy them nonetheless 🙂
