The story of Raven Breg is a story of an old standing, successful business, effort and a clear vision of Gavran family to create a magical wedding & business resort in Haganj, a village about thirty minutes’ drive from Zagreb.
While choosing the name of the property, we decided to play with the meaning of our surname in English, since the English word “raven” stands for “gavran”. After that, it was only natural to use the image of this mysterious and intelligent bird, that has been present in numerous mythologies and legends worldwide for centuries, to create a mascot which will represent our brand. We have been reading about this mysterious bird since the 6th century BC, the time of the ancient Greece, when a famous Greek author Aesop wrote the famous fable about the raven and the fox. Raven is also the main character of the famous poem by American writer Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849).
At Raven Breg, the symbol of raven is everywhere, while our accommodation facilities also carry the names of ravens, even our tavern. There is also a raven at the terrace of our tavern, just to make sure your stay here is comfortable.
