Our Lady of Jerusalem Krapina

According to the written tradition, a Francis-can monk named Joakim Balagović brought Our Lady’s statue from the Holy Land in 1669 as a gift for his brother Nikola who lived just by the road at Trški vrh. When the unfortunate Nikola’s house caught fire and burned to the ground, the statue was found untouched in the ashes. Nikola then put it in the hollow walnut tree near his house and that’s where the first worshiping of the statue began.

Do & See

For the escape from daily routine and obligations we recommend a program, which will fill your batteries. The number of riding terrains in Croatian Zagorje is great, and if you ride into any corner, the experience of landscape beauty, finely ruffled hills with mosaic forests, vineyards, Zagorje villages and fields, partially separated by river valleys, is unspeakable. Picturesque and hilly Croatian Zagorje is suitable for cycling. Zagorje abounds in tourist-recreational cycling routes that are adapted for the widest range of users, with a special accent on recreational cyclists, families with kids and juniors. If you are looking for something different, the greatest pleasure is to watch Zagorje from a balloon or just to come and enjoy a family picnic on a meadow and run barefoot over the mowed fragrant grass.
