Vrbovec is located above slightly undulating hills surrounded by rich fields, vineyards and forests near Zagreb. The remains of a former castle, the smaller Patačič castle and other historical monuments testify that Vrbovec is an ancient location. Vrbovec is also home to the great Croatians - Petar Zrinski and Marija Jurić Zagorka.

Well-known destinations are Lovrenčina town (a castle 4 km away from Vrbovec), river Glogovnica's aquifer and Varoški lug’s varied plants and plentiful wildlife. Rural and eco-tourism takes the most significant place in all the major tourist offers of Vrbovac.

The event "Kaj su jeli naši stari?" [What did our ancestors eat?] is a key event, an image of the old way of life and traditional dishes that is held at the end of August or beginning of September.
