Following the written past and oral narrations of the older people of this area, Lobor is mentioned as far back as 1257 as Castrum Lobor. Its name probably comes from the Latin word Labor (laboratory), and it is assumed that the Romans had their workshops and quarries in that area. As a trace of their stay, they left tombstones, one of which (cecellija superiana), excavated in 1857, is in the Archaeological Museum in Zagreb.Today, the Municipality of Lobor can be reached by asphalt road and every benefactor will find good drinking water, electricity, telephone and gas here in every household and social standard. Larger Lobor events are also worth mentioning, such as the Lobor Carnival and the celebration of the day of the municipality, Janine.Untouched nature, clean air, clear streams, cultural values ​​and big hearts of the locals are the main features of Lobor and this is exactly what is offered to all those who want to visit this area.

very good!!!
We toured the Archaeological Museum where we saw the tombstones left as a trace of Romans. I joined the locals with a big heart in the celebration of the day of the municipality, Janine. They offered us with a place to rest in their households, the household had good drinking water and electricity.
This village has been in existence since the mid 13th century. It's a town located on a valley surrounded by dense vegetation. Its air is so different. The people here were so hospitable and welcoming.
The place has some cultural values and activities that are fascinating. We enjoyed the the event that was hosted by the locals at the place. It was entertaining and we had the chance of interacting with the natives around and loved the whole thing.
We visited this place and the naturality of the place was amazing the atmosphere is so cool and the water is clean. The place also has a history of romans with their quarries there and the remains can also be seen.
It was wonderful to learn where the of the name Lobor was derived from. We learnt that it comes from the word Laboratory and that the Romans ruled them. They even set up workshops and quarries here.
We toured the archaeological museum and were lucky to find the excavations of the tombstones of the deceased Romans who stayed here then. The artefacts in the museums were well organized and the museum was well kept and spacious to accommodate the 10 of us. The tour guides were knowledgeable and explained everything into details.
