Vincek hike

Vincek hike

The traditional winter 22nd Vincek hike, which will take place on Sunday, January 19th. The hike is organized on the hills of Međimurje, with the aim of commemorating St. Vincent's Day, the patron saint of winegrowers.

The start is between 8.00 and 9.00 at Toplice Sv. Martin, at the hotel’s parking lot. Free buses will depart from Mursko Središće between 7.10 and 8.45 in the morning. The route starts at St. Martin's Spa and continues across the winegrowing hills of Grkaveščak and Venac to Gradišće, Kapelščak, Koncovčak, Balog and Bundek.

After a few side stops in the hilly part (some of them will have the traditional Vincek rite), we head to Mursko Središće, the northernmost Croatian town. It takes another two kilometers to the sports hall where the end of the walk and the start of the hiking party is.

The entry fee is 20 kn for adults, for children it is free. The price includes transportation from Mursko Središće (for those who do not come with their bus), a symbolic gift (surprise), a check card (confirm at the finish line in the hall) and bread with bacon and liquor at the start.
