Culture and tradition

Education System

The historical overview indicates that Križevci is the town in which education constantly flourishes. In the 17th century there was already a Pauline Gymnasium in the town founded by the pavlini (Pauline Monks), who were presented with land by Ivan Zakmardi of Dijankovec. Detailed info...

College of Agriculture

The 19th century saw some major changes taking place in Europe, as well as in Croatia. In 1848 serfdom, and consequentially the feudal tenure of land, was abolished, allowing the peasants to own their own land. These changes in turn gave way to founding of School of Agriculture in Križevci, which was officially initiated by the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Austria in 1853. However, the plans had been put off several times due to lack of financial support. It was only after the Bach’s absolutism fell, on November 19, 1860, that The College of Agriculture in Križevci started functioning. Detailed info...

Local people have always known how to enjoy themselves, how to laugh and have fun, and the town’s most famous rules on companionable wine-drinking, the so called štatuti (The Križevci Statutes) stand as testimony to this.
