Bjelovar region

Things to do - general
Bjelovar-Bilogora County is the easternmost county of central Croatia. It mostly stretches through the Lonja and Čazma River valleys and is surrounded by the hills of Bilogora, Mt. Papuk and Moslavačka gora.
This is a gently hilly region with river valleys cut into the gravel-clay plains. Settlements are primarily lowland and often tie into one another, forming a series of long villages along the roads, extending several kilometres in length. The county stands out for its great ethnic diversity, which contributes to its cultural wealth.
The County of Bjelovar-Bilogora is a Croatia’s county of outspoken and hospitable people. There are many reasons for your visit and stay there apart from the azure sky, yellow fields and green meadows, blue fish-ponds, vineyards, orchards and healthy, natural forests. If, by any chance, you lose your way, which is, with excellent traffic connections, almost impossible, everybody will gladly tell you the way.
If you stop by one of our towns tired, hungry and thirsty, you will come across a number of comfortable hotels, restaurants, ale-houses, and coffee bars, where you can find whatever you need. We recommend you to order old dishes and drinks, because this is a region with a rich culinary tradition. For your picnic you can choose among twenty different kinds of cheese, salami, sausages, eggs, biscuits, beer, or wine.

Culture and History

The county seat, Bjelovar, is one of our youngest towns. It was established in the mid 18th century as a military-border centre, with a grid layout of its streets around a large central square. Important cultural and historical monuments surround the square: the Baroque parish Church of St. Theresa, the town museum, military barracks and more.

Čazma is an old settlement of great historical significant, particularly seen in the preserved Čazma Kaptol with its fantastic and lovely Church of St. Mary Magdalene.

Five towns and nineteen municipalities are picturesque places scattered around small hills of Bilogora, Moslavina, and Slavonija, each with its beauties and traditional stories, some of them reaching into the Ancient Roman times. Museums and churches keep our precious treasure - evidence of existence, duration, and preservation of life in this area.

A rich tradition of church feasts and religious celebrations show our connection with our origins.
