Horvat’s stairs are located in Toplice part of Medvednica, and you can reach them on foot from the place Pila in Stubičke Toplice, in about an hour. Vladimir Horvat was a big fan of Medvednica and in the period from 1946 – 1953 he has built by his own hand 500 stone steps, in the part of Medvednica that was by then inaccessible. This area is particularly interesting because of the diversity of karst formations in limestone terrain. Except caves and holes here are also underground waters, rocks, sink holes and scarps, which help the visitor to imagine diversity and interesting karst nature. Height difference is 103 m, the length of the stairs is 300 m, and the tour takes about 15 minutes.
