The calm Sisak-Moslavina County, where it is easy to endure, is reminiscent of shattered stained glass that emanates a mysterious glow containing the history of many generations. It is a county largely adjacent to the mantle of the mighty Pannonian Sea, with single floor houses huddled like frightened field mice; but also a county streaming toward the sky in a faint vertical direction. The teal cradle of Croatia with six cities and thirteen municipalities is located south of Zagreb. It is the area partially taken up by wetland plains in the lowland watercourses of the rivers Sava, Kupa, Odra, Lonja, Glina, Česma, Ilova, and Una.

The Sisak-Moslavina County is the space that tugs at our imagination, it is playful, mysterious, and full of content, it has the oldest yellow pigment in the facades of houses and the ground under which the great Pannonian Sea still rolls. If you visit this area just for a moment, you will witness a common world, but one so moving that it brings you to tears. There is hardly a place in Europe that is as beautiful and as perfect for taking a break from everything. A footprint is the old custom of marking the place where a person has been –
