Klanjec – A Thank You to Autumn
A ‘Thank You to Autumn’ is a traditional autumn event in Klanjec, which with its diverse cultural and tourist programs represents a part of the heritage of the Croatian Zagorje region, with emphasis on the revival of traditional crafts, costumes, music, folk customs and culinary offerings of the past century.

The variety of presentations at this three-day event (8 - 10 October) offers a number of exhibitions, concerts, performances of associations of knights who recreate medieval traditions, presentations of old crafts and skills, and a traditional products fair with a rich gastronomic offer.

Klanjec is located in the western part of the Croatian Zagorje, on a hill along the valley of the river Sutla, through which once a Roman road passed. It is believed that Klanjec developed from a settlement below the fort Cesargrad, which was first noted in 1399.

Klanjec itself first appeared in historical documents in 1463 and the settlement was named according to the position of its physical location - the entrance to the gorge (klanac) Zelenjak.

At the heart of the old town is the Franciscan monastery with a baroque church from the 17th century. Precious and valuable pewter sarcophagi of the Erdödy family are exhibited in the reconstruction of the crypt situated in the monastery.
