The Project is located in the small village of Kumrovec, in the Krapina - Zagorje County, which is in the north western part of Croatia, on the border with Slovenia. The county’s location ensures that it’s an inevitable point on the traffic route from Western Europe across Slovenia (Maribor), through the capital city of Croatia, Zagreb, towards the south, east and the north of Croatia. Kumrovec is located 45 km away from the capital city of Zagreb and its international airport, as well as 50 km from Slovenian city Maribor. All localities in the county are well connected by roads. The entire county is a tame picturesque region, abounding in hills with vineyards, green forests and rivers, a multitude of villages with castles, historical ruins and monuments. Beside its rich cultural, historical and eno-gastronomic offer, the county is well known for its tradition of health and spa tourism (hospitals for medical rehabilitation in Krapinske Toplice and Stubičke Toplice, the first private cardio surgery clinic Magdalena Clinic) and numerous thermal baths (Stubičke, Tuheljske and Krapinske Toplice), for which, investors are recently showing increasing interest. The major attraction of Kumrovec is the Old Village Kumrovec Ethnological Museum with very well preserved village houses from the turn of 19th to the 20th century, where the birth house and a monument to the well known politician and former president of the former Yugoslavia, Josip Broz Tito, can be visited.
The beauty of completely preserved nature and rich historical heritage, offer an excellent basis for tourist development of the Zagorje region. In line with that, one of the goals of future tourist development of the Municipality of Kumrovec is the reconstruction and reuse of existing facilities owned by the Republic of Croatia and Municipality of Kumrovec, consisting of Zagorje Hotel (former school of political sciences) and the Sports and Recreation Centre. The spatial plans in force envisage development of tourism, sport and recreational facilities.
