    Tipicna Zagorska hiža je niska zgrada izradjena od cigle ili blata, s fasadom koja je obojana u bijeloj ili nekoj drugoj jarkoj boji. Ispred samog ulaza nalazi se drvena veranda gdje se izuvaju cipele prije ulaska u kucu.

  • Ethnological museum

    The major attraction of Kumrovec is the Ethnological Museum Staro Selo (Old Village) Kumrovec with very well preserved village houses from the turn of 19th/20th century. The reconstruction and redecoration of these houses started in 1977. So far 40-odd houses and other farm-stead facilities have been restored, which makes Staro Selo the most...

  • The birth house of Josip Broz Tito

    The birth house of Tito (built in 1860 as the first brickwork house in the village) features the Memorial Museum of Marshal Tito, opened in 1953. The Museum is also important for the local folklore. Next to the house is the bronze standing statue of Marshal Tito (made by A. Augustincic, 1948).

  • Mostovi

    Rijeka Sutla, koja protjece kroz sami centar Kumrovca, premoscena je citavim sustavom malih drvenih mostova koji daju posebnu dra? cijelome selu. Glavna seoska ulica, kao to i dolikuje, premoscena je pravim kamenim mostom.

  • Gospodarska zgrada

    Vrlo karakteristicna i višenamjenska godpodarska zgrada; u donjem dijelu je štala za stoku i nadstrešnica za kola, dok je u gornjem dijelu sušionica i sjenik. Uobicajeno je da se donji dio zgrade gradi od cigle ili blata, dok je kat izgradjen od drvene gradje.

  • Bogata hiza

    Bogata seljacka kuca djeluje vrlo impozantno u odnosu na okruženje. Gradjena je od cvršceg materijala, debljih je zidova i ima stepenice od kamena, što je prava rijetkost za ovaj kraj. Sugeriram da ovdje probate zagorske strukle, koje su vrlo ukusne, a ambijent je kao u crticu, drvene klupe i stolovi zasjenjeni lozom.

  • Košaraštvo

    Jednokatnice su prava rijetkost u selu, osim krcme postoji još samo jedna kuca na kat vrlo slicne gradje kao i ova u kojoj je prezentiran košaraški obrt. Posebnost je takodjer i vrlo lijepa drvena veranda koja se proteže duž cijeli kat.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Je, vu Zagorju se navek znalo lepo zabavit a na svadbi se nori tak dugo dok 'ma peèenih pajcekov i gemištov.
    Ob koncu veselice pajdaši se onak za prav potuèeju, jerbo navek postoji nerešeni problem kojeg gemišti jako dobro osvetle.

Kumrovec Transportation

  • Vinska kola

    Vinska kola su zapravo inacica zaprežnih kola na koja je montirana bacva velike zapremine. Služila su za prijevoz vina do otkupne stanice ili do vecih kupaca a nešto rijedje za prijevoz pitke vode. Cak i kada je suša Zagorac ce radije piti svoje vino nego li vodu.Ta kola su sakem Zagorcu najrajšija.

  • Sanjke

    Nekada su zime obilovale snijegom koji se zadržavao na tlu gotovo 3-4 mjeseca. Bogatije gazde posjedovale su ovakav tip sanjki koji je služio iskljucivo za osobni prijevoz i to na konjski pogon.

  • Mrtvaèka kola

    Prava je šteta da su ova mrtvacka kola, kakvih više nema, bacena u kraj i djeluju vrlo zapušteno i cak prljavo.Bogato ukrašena i stilizirana mrtvacka kola upotrebljavala su se za posljednji ispracaj pokojnika. Sjecam se da sam takva kola znao vidjeti u svom djetinjstvu, uobicajeno je bilo da ih vuce cetveropreg lipicanaca što je djelovalo vrlo...

    Spomenik je rad Augusta Augustincica, koji je bio omiljeni Titov kipar. Tito je prikazan u svojem poznatom ratnom šinjelu, kao personifikacija covjeka koji odlucno i smjelo koraca ususret konacnoj pobjedi i oslobodjenju zemlje od njemackih okupatora. Skulptura je odljev u bronzi a prikazuje Tita u naravnoj velicini.

Kumrovec Warnings and Dangers

    Bloodthirsty Roland and poor prisoner Inga

    by IngaA Updated Nov 2, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A really very dangerous person, I must say. Don't let him take weapon. His favourite scene from "3 Musketeers" is Milady's putting to death.
    You can see that I'm telling the truth.

  • Stari zanati - tkanje

    Tkanje tkanina na tkalackom stanu bio je mukotrpan i dugotrajan posao koji se upražnjavao uglavnom u dugim zimskim danima kada nije bilo poljoprivrednih radova. Tkanjem su se uglavnom bavile seoske žene. Kao sirovina je služila kudelja, iz koje se izradjivala laka odjeca (košulje, donje rublje, odjeca za ljeto i sl), te vuna.

  • Miljana

    Due to historical reasons (fights with Turks), most of Croatia's beautiful castles and manors are located in the North, i.e. in Hrvatsko Zagorje. Ideally, a trip to Kumrovec should be combined with visits to some of them: Veliki Tabor, Mali Tabor, Bezanec, Klenovnik, Miljana, Trakoscan... The manor at the photo is Miljana , a 10 minute drive from...

  • Open air museum of Kumrovec

    The idea of such museums is quite popular. My visit there reminded me about the open air museum of rural architecture of Ukraine. I think that's a good way to show how people lived, how their houses looked, what their occupations were. There are wooden houses from different areas of Croatia, having special features, mostly related to the...
