In the photo, there is a traditional old house from the northwestern part of Croatia, Hrvatsko zagorje. Although today the Croatian countryside is mostly filled with modern houses, you can still find some traditional estates. Each region has houses of different styles, due to different climate and cultural influences. In recent years, rural tourism in the continental part of Croatia has developed, so you can visit restored old estates and explore agricultural practices and food that was typical in the past. 

The photo was taken in Desinić, Hrvatsko zagorje.
