Geocache Description:


Hrvatsko Zagorje

Hrvatsko zagorje je kulturno-povijesna hrvatska regija i zasebna prirodno-zemljopisna cjelina u sjeverozapadnom dijelu Hrvatske, od Zagreba je odvojeno Medvednicom, odakle mu i naziv – „za gorom“. To je pretežno brježuljkast kraj između Medvednice, Kalnika, rijeke Drave, Sutle i Save čijim se središnjim dijelom, u smjeru zapad-istok, pruža gorski niz Maceljska gora-Strahinjščica-Ivanščica-Varaždinsko topličko gorje koji dijeli Zagorje na dva dijela – sjeverno i južno. Sjeverno Zagorje dio je Varaždinske županije, a južno u cjelosti obuhvaća Krapinsko-zagorsku županiju te sjevero-zapadni dio Zagrebačke Županije. Sa zapadne strane se na Zagorje preko rijeke Sutle nadovezuje Slovenska Štajerska, odnosno područja Obsotelja i Kozjanskega, dok je Maceljsko gorje odnosno Macelj hrvatsko-slovenska gora. Slovenske Haloze se nastavljaju preko državne granice u Hrvatsku te se kod Vinice spuštaju pod dravske nanose. Rijeka Drava predstavlja granicu između Hrvatskog zagorja i Međimurja. Kalnik predstavlja granicu prema Podravini, a djelomično i Prigorju. Stanovnici Zagorja govore kajkavskim narječjem, a njemu najsrodnije je štajersko narječje ili štajerščina. Zbog višestoljetnog prisutstva njemačkog, austrijskog i mađarskog plemstva u Zagorju te zemljopisne blizine Austrije i Mađarske, Zagorci i danas često koriste tuđice iz spomenutih jezika u svakodnevnom govoru. Tradicijska izrada zagorskih drvenih igračaka, lepoglavska čipka te medičarski i licitarski proizvodi, zbog svojih su posebnosti i vrijednosti uvršteni na listu nematerijalnih dobara UNESCO-a.

Hrvatsko zagorje is a region north of Zagreb, Croatia. It comprises the whole area north of Mount Medvednica up to Slovenia in the north and west, and up to the regions of Međimurje and Podravina in the north and east. The population of Zagorje is not recorded as such, as it is administratively divided among Krapina-Zagorje County (total population 142,432), western and central part of Varaždin County (total population 183,730) and northwestern part of Zagreb County (total population 309,696), so the population of Zagorje can be reasonably estimated to exceed 300,000 people.

Croatian people usually refer to this region as "Zagorje", a word which literally means "transmountain (area)", "beyond the mountain" (with respect to Medvednica). However, to avoid confusion with a nearby Zagorje ob Savi municipality in Slovenia which bears the same name, the Croatian part is called Hrvatsko zagorje, meaning "Croatian Zagorje".

The town of Krapina is often referred to as the cultural capital of Kajkavian dialect, the north-western dialect of the Croatian language. Every year, the Festival of Kajkavian Song (Festival kajkavske popevke) takes place in Krapina.
