FORTRESS AND RESTAURANT
The Stari grad fortress is a unique medieval fortification and as such is the most important part of the cultural heritage of Đurđevac. Every year, in front of the Stari grad fortress, the Picokijada is held, the culmination of which is a stage presentation of the historical attack of the Turks on the Đurđevac fortress.

The Picokijada Interpretation Center is located in the museum space where ethno heritage exhibits, interactive installations such as the presentation of the stage spectacle of the Legend of the Picoks and many other interesting things related to the Đurđevac area are waiting for you.
The fort was of great importance in the middle of the 16th century at the time of the Ottoman invasion.
