^ You rock, Bubach. (And I rhyme). When I saw your pictures of Croatia, I remembered Samobor as being one of the most beautiful Croatian cities I'd ever seen, but I couldn't remember the name. I knew only this photo:

And you shared it! Exactly the photo! Gorgeous city, truly my favorite! And has been for a while, I just didn't know the name! :D

^ Danke schoen for your kompliment ;)

I am glad this thread was helpful enough to demistificate the identity of the pic that 'bothered' ya :)
I wouldnt call Samobor a city, though.. it is a tiny town - 14.000 ppl only....with best Kremsnitas in our galaxy ;)

Yup...that's it, I watched a few days ago on your television about this town, and I saw how do they prepare famous Samobor's kremšnite! It's charming town! True Croatian pearl!
