City of Sveta Nedelja is located on the southern bank of Sava river, in between Zagreb, capital city of Croatia, and the city of Samobor (travel notes). City had grown over the last few decades when many new families and small businesses found their home in Sveta Nedelja. Its close proximity to Zagreb, connections via highway and a few alternative roads to the rest of the world, makes Sveta Nedelja preferable home making location surrounded by beautiful nature.
