Traditional “čardak” house
The house is situated in the vicinity of the Naftalan Special Hospital. Its interior has been adapted for the purpose of keeping and showing the ethnographic treasures of Ivanić-Grad and its surrounding area. The lower floor has been turned into workspace for the traditional craft and family workshops from Ivanić-Grad and the neighbouring area, preserving the features of a “čardak” house’s original purpose.
The library was founded as an Ivanić-Grad reading room in 1877. It holds a valuable collection of old books and magazines as well as records of the library’s operation from the date it was founded to this day.

The town hall is one the oldest and, architecturally speaking, most valuable buildings in Ivanić-Grad, located in the Croatian Veterans Park. The town hall’s renovation and remodelling were completed in 2011. The town’s coat of arms dating back to 1889 has been put up above the entrance door.
City Park – Croatian Veterans Park
The park was developed at a site of the old fortress after its earthen ramparts had been knocked down. It was built on the basis of a special design and under the supervision of a botanic professor Viteslav Durhanek, in the tradition of the English park landscape. In 1997 Slavomir Drinković, an academic sculptor, built a memorial monument to Croatian war veterans from the Otok Ivanić region who had died during the Croatian War of Independence. Typical 19 th century buildings are located in the centre of the city park: Town hall and the Parish church of St Peter the Apostle.
Church of St Peter the Apostle, Ivanić-Grad
The Parish church of St Peter was completed in 1831. It is heavily adorned with frescoes (painted by Leonardo Marotti) dating from the late baroque period. The church has an organ with 14 ranks from 1909. An English style park was landscaped around the church at the end of the last century. A monument was put up at the church entrance in 1925, celebrating the 1000 th anniversary of the Kingdom of Croatia.
Church of St Maximilian, Posavski Bregi
The church was completed in 1815. It holds a substantial collection of linen materials placed on the altar which were crafted and donated by the parishioners.
Church of St Nicholas, Dubrovčak Lijevi
The church is located close to the River Sava. It was the first stone church in the parish founded in 1789, and as such, the Church of St Nicholas is the oldest church in the Ivanić-Grad surrounding area. The church was renovated in 1880.
