The Municipality of Pisarovina measures about 142 square kilometres and has a population of only 3,707. Pisarovina is also the name of the municipal centre, a small town between the Vukomeričke Gorice hills, the Kupa River and the Draganići Woods. The town is accessible by a regional road and lies about 27 kilometres from Jastrebarsko and 25 kilometres from Zagreb. The municipality comprises the villages of Bratina, Bregana Pisarovinska, Donja Kupčina, Dvoranci, Gorica Jamnička, Lijevo Sredičko, Lučelnica, Pisarovina, Podgorje Jamničko, Selsko Brdo, Topolovec Pisarovinski, and Velika Jamnička. The picturesque landscape of Pisarovina offers many pleasant sights. Fields and rolling hills alternate with ancient oak woods and groves, and streams meander towards the confluence with the Kupa. This rich and diverse area will delight the visitor with a sense of the gentle beauty of nature. Many families from Zagreb have discovered a sense of freedom in these unspoilt surroundings and have chosen to build their holiday cottages here. Along the clear and warm Kupa, little inlets covered with river sand attract visitors in search of a swim or a pleasant week-end rest. The Kupa is an attractive fishing spot, too: anglers can try their luck with carp, amur, chub, tench, catfish, pike and perch. Fishing is also possible at the anglers’ fishponds in Pisarovina.


Tourist attractions

Donja Kupčina

A large village called Donja Kupčina lies about thirty kilometres to the south of Zagreb, amidst the ploughland, meadows and woods of the Kupa Valley and near the confluence of the Kupčina and the Kupa. The people in this village are very keen to preserve their culture and heritage: they have created an open-air museum, or ethnological park, to exhibit the ethnological traditions of Donja Kupčina. This park displays houses, buildings from village farmyards, wells, workshops and other examples of masonry and popular crafts. All these buildings are furnished with traditional furniture, textiles and other exhibits to show the past way of life in these villages. The museum is open every day from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
