In the rocks &caves sarounding Krapina in 1899 Prof. D Gorjanovic-Kramberger found some startling evidence of ealy human habbitation.
The early humans: Homo Neandertalisis(=n. primigenius) left its mark in the shallow caves. The site was considerably big and took 6 yrs from 1899-1905 to be escavated.
Nowdays there is an very interesting museum and sizable site.
Worth your vist.
My kids lovd every minute of it. For them interesting fact was that the early humans were pritty small, as there is life size bronze statues of early human family.
