There were many things through which the Kraljević family managed to recreate the upland atmosphere - having a versatile offering of the upland delicatessen and goodies is just one of them. Having completed this valuable project of the hotel renovation, with the purpose of developing tourism in this area, the Kraljević family showed us their affection towards Gorski Kotar and how much they would like to revitalize it.
