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.
