Zlatar Bistrica


By merging the hamlets of Donji Brestovec, Gornji Brestovec and Granchari, today's municipality of Zlatar Bistrica was created. The place was formed next to the mentioned settlements around the newly created railway station on the Zagreb-Varazhdin line in 1911.The station, and thus the settlement that is located nearby, got its name from a combination of the two nearest larger places between which it is located - Zlatar and Marija Bistrica, hence the name Zlatar Bistrica.Since 1962, Zlatar Bistrica has been the largest municipality in Hrvatsko Zagorje with approximately 33,000 inhabitants. The municipal seat was located in the center of Zlatar Bistrica, and the municipality itself included today's towns and municipalities Budinshchina, Hrashchina, Konjshchina, Lobor, Mihovljan, Novi Golubovec, Mache, Zlatar and Zlatar Bistrica.

very good!!!
Our guide took us round to the historical sights in this place. He Was very knowledgeable as he explained the events that took place here. He was very friendly and answered all our questions. We were happy to be here.
The parish was the first thing i noticed as we got into the town, it has a massive structure and great colour, the interior was also a great feat of architecture. The streets were calm and collected i loved driving through here as i was checking out the settlements.
Being the fact that it is located near the railway station, we boarded a railway to tour around. The staff at the railway station were kind to us and they spoke English making communication easy. Will visit this place soon.
The municipalities are well maintained . The residents are commodative and friendly, they made our stay feel comfortable.I enjoyed cycling around this town as I enjoyed its scenic beauty and it's beautiful structural buildings.
This town started as a result of the railway station. It is a small town. I enjoyed admiring its buildings and seeing how the town has grown and developed. It was neatly planned. One could just cycle around this town.
The structural planning and beauty of this town is really unique. It just stands out. The history of how it came tob was really interesting. I enjoyed touring this town and admiring its beautiful buildings. It was a breathtaking moment.
