The Staro Selo museum is an open air village which is a walk back in time even though there are still some original inhabitants. The birthplace of Marshall Tito is also there. The village is now open to the public even though it is owned by the government.
I would recommend this place to everyone who are interested in getting to know the tradition of this part of Croatia. It will lead you to the past of how people lived, to their habits and how the villages used to look like. There is a house where Josip Broz Tito lived and his statue as well.
We went here mostly to see marshall Tito's birthouse and to celebrate "Youth's day", but we were delighted to see preserved old houses and display of customs from Croatian northwest region Zagorje. It is a nice place to see and spend some quality time they also offer an exibition of items and gifts Tito recived from other foreign officials in... 更多

There is a building dedicated to the first fire station, a pottery maker, the blacksmith shop, etc. Many of the buildings are original. The actual village where... 更多

It's interesting to look into the houses and see how people lived many years ago. We felt rushed as our guide didn't give us a lot of time and we had to rush through one building after... 更多
On a recent trip to Zagreb, we drove through the countryside to visit Kumrovec, a well preserved outdoor museum of old village houses and the birthplace of the late Marshall Tito. It was interesting to wander around and visit the hundred year old farm houses. Some of them were shops, like a blacksmith's shop. There was also a firehouse with... 更多
We haven't expect such nice experience. We thought it will be boring history but it was quite big open-air museum including Tito's house and other numerous houses from 19th century. We had beautiful weather so we could walk for a long time. The place is easy to find with a large parking lot (no charge), there is caffe there and... 更多
WE had a wonderful guide here that explained so much about Tito's life. She brought him back to life. We loved walking around the village and looking into the different houses.
