novi dvori grobnica

Novi dvori Jelacicevi - this is a unique example of the manorial complex: manor house (castle), small castle chapel, farm buildings and family grave site (mausoleum).
The castle has changed hands many times since 17th century to the middle of the 19th century. The first masters of the castle were members of Zrinski family and in the 1851 it was bought by Croatian Ban Josip Jelacic, known in history  by serfdom (servitude) abolition in Croatia in 1848, and whose statue stands on Zagreb central square (master-work of Viennese  artist Anton Fernkorn).
The castle was a property of Jelacic family by the 1934. when countess Anka Jelacic, the last owner, died.
