Fuzine is a village and a municipality in Gorski Kotar County, with the population of around 1500 people. It was built during the 17th century, when the Zrinski family opened an iron mine in this area.
The village was named by blacksmiths, which was a common calling in the area, because they were repairing carriages that traveled on the road Karolina, connecting Bakar and Karlovac.
Today, Fuzine is a perfect village for a quiet vacation. There are 3 lakes surrounding the village: Bajer, Lepenica, and the smallest Potkos. (all of which generate electricity). While on the fresh mountain air, you are just half an hour away from the Adriatic sea.
In the center of the village there is a nice hotel (have to try their pie), but you can also stay at some of the local apartments.
If you can’t quite decide to take a whole vacation here, you can definitely give it a quick visit, since it is just near the exit ‘Vrata’ on the Zagreb – Rijeka highway.
