County of hidden charms

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 seat, Bjelovar, is one of our youngest towns. It was established in the mid 18th century as a military-border centre, with a grid layout of its streets around a large central square. Important cultural and historical monuments surround the square: the Baroque parish Church of St. Theresa, the town museum, military barracks and more.

Čazma is an old settlement of great historical significant, particularly seen in the preserved Čazma Kaptol with its fantastic and lovely Church of St. Mary Magdalene.
