The town of Samobor and its small surrounding villages with their green meadows and hills truly are a wonderful getaway from the craze the main city has to offer. Such places still hold onto much tradition when it comes to crafts, folk dance, costume and food. Speaking of the latter, one classic food that has stood the test of time even since the 20th century is the rudarska greblica. These are types of pastry snacks that miners would take with them down mines knowing that they would have to be there for many hours without pause. These could last hours; they didn’t need to be kept in a fridge and gave miners lots of energy for their hard labour. Probably still a poor man’s meal, people had little to choose from back then and all that villages had to offer were more often than not flour, salt, eggs, milk, cream and other dairy. Decades later, such pastry snacks from the area thrive in cafes and restaurants and are a true delicacy.
