Kumrovec Travel Guide: 31 reviews and 118 photos
The Old Village is situated in a picturesque valley surrounded by green hills and Slovenian mountains in the north-west. The very middle of the valley is marked by the Sutla river, a natural borderline between the Republic of Slovenia and the Republic of Croatia.
The beginnings of the Old Village Museum go back to 1952 when Josip Broz Tito's house of birth became a memorial museum. During the sixties the idea of a museum in the open air was gradually rooted in order to preserve and present the traditional heritage of Hrvatsko Zagorje.
The Old Village Museum consists of the old nucleus of the serfs' settlement of Kumrovec with twenty restored and reconstructed houses, ten barns and seven adjacent structures.
