Veliko Trgovisce


Veliko Trgovisce, a charming place tailored to the family, was first mentioned at the beginning of the 16th century. Located at the entrance to Krapina-Zagorje County from the direction of Zagreb, along the banks of the river Krapina, it is well connected with the capital of Croatia and other centers of Europe. Throughout history, the place expanded and developed with the construction of the road and later with the construction of the railway. It is certainly worth pointing out that the oldest school in the then Balkans was founded in that area near the church in Velika Erpenja! Veliko Trgovisce is the birthplace of the first Croatian president, Dr. Franjo Tudjman, and in his memory his birth house and Memorial School with a memorial part and a gallery of paintings, as well as a library and reading room were renovated. This beautiful Zagorje place was chosen by many young families for life and a promising future.

We toured this charming location for our vacation with my family and everyone of us had something to enjoy. My kids continued their studies without disturbance in the reading room that is clean and well kept fitted with all reading materials and study utilities. Us we toured the gallery that had paintings on the walls telling a story about the Legendary first Croatian President.
This place was rich in cultural and historic heritage. I visited the ancient church which still had a magnificent bell tower. The garden was well mowed with benches scattered around for people to enjoy watching Lord's and quiet time. I loved the serenity of this place.
It was a beautiful experience visiting a place that is important in the Croatian country, the birthplace of the Croatian president. This makes it wonderful to visit and just interact with the people who are friendly, in addition to this a tour at the memorial school of the president makes it interesting to just visit and learn something interesting about the first president of Croatia.
very good!!!
