Birthplace of the President of Former Yugoslavia Josip Broz Tito

Kumrovec is a picturesque village in the central part of Croatia, part of the Krapina-Zagorje county, on the Sutla river, along the Croatian-Slovenian border. Today 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 attractive place of this kind in Croatia. Visitors may see permanent ethnological exhibitions such as the Zagorje-style Wedding, the Life of Newly-weds, From Hemp to Linen, Blacksmith's Crafts, Cart-wright's Craft, Pottery, From Grain to Bread, etc. A special attraction of the village is the birth house of the president of former Yugoslavia - Josip Broz Tito, with a monument.
