Krapina is a city in Central Croatia.
Krapina is a small town in northern Croatia and also an administrative and cultural centre of Krapinsko-zagorska county. It is administrative centre of Krapinsko-zagorska county located aproximately 55 km from Zagreb, Croatias capital. The city is first mentioned in 1193. but has even longer history.
a. By train – a railway connects Krapina and Zagreb. The train ride takes from 1h 30 min up to 2 h depending on the train category. The price is 40 kn – cca 5 euros (one way) b. By bus – the bus leaves from Autobusni kolodvor Zagreb and the ride takes about 1h. It will cost you cca 50 kn (cca 7 euros) c. By car – it takes you cca 50 minutes if you use a A2 highway (exit Krapina) but it will cost you cca 10 euros; other route is on Zagorska magistrala (Zagreb-Zabok-Krapina). It takes longer (cca 1h 15 min) but you don't pay toll.
Getting arround is not an issue you should be concerned by. Krapina is a very small town and you can see all the sights on foot. Although if u arrived by car you will have to pay parking in the city.
Neanderthal museum (Muzej evolucije) – This is where you enter a time machine ang go far back into the past. You will travel to Earths history. Here you can find out all about the anatomy, culture and the environment of the Neanderthal. The museum is located in situ, in other words, on the prehistoric habitat. It will take you to the beginning of our species. You will learn all about Dr. Kramberger, the man behind the epochal discovery. The museum has all sorts of multimedia content so it's a great place to visit with your family (your kids will love every minute). I would recommend it to all kinds of scientists (archeologists, historians, antropologist..). The museum is impressive and one of the most visited museums in Croatia.
