Ministering to Those Who Minister


Barnabas Zentrum uses three locations.  The schedule page will tell you what location where each of the retreats are being held.  The following information gives you directions and some information of these locations.

 #1 Samobor, Croatia

With covered bridges, a trickling brook stocked with trout and two-story red-roofed houses, Samobor looks almost unreal. Just walking around soothes the spirit. Only 20km from Zagreb, it seems to be worlds away from Croatia’s busy capital and has a beautifully preserved medieval ambiance.  Within 10km of Samobor, in the country of Slovenija, is the indoor/outdoor waterpark “Terme Ćatež” where you can enjoy a very relaxing afternoon in the spa-like atmosphere.


The Hotel Lavica is situated in the very center of Samobor, near Zagreb, the capital city of Croatia. More than 250 years ago the building of the hotel Lavica with all of the other buildings in the area belonged to the court counselor TISZTAPATAKYA. In 1809, the Wiesner-Livadic family purchased it.
