Iron Curtain Trail

The Koprivnica Tourist Board is one out of a total of 15 project partners of the Iron Curtain Bicycle Route, EuroVelo Route no. 13, which in the Republic of Croatia and Hungary is financed by the South East Europe Program. The project was carried out entirely at the end of 2014, and the Croatian partner's job was to define the route from Međimurje to Osijek-Baranja County and install it on the Iron Curtain route. In Koprivnica-Križevci County, EuroVelo route follows the Drava Route cycling trail.

The project cost EUR 1.403.441,05 of which the European Union co-financed 85%. The Town of Koprivnica is also located on the Iron Curtain Trail, and all the cultural and tourist content of our town are presented on the joint web site and other promotional materials EuroVelo Route - http://www.eurovelo13.com/stages/hungary-croatia

EuroVelo route no. 13 is over 7000 km long and follows the artificial border that Europe was divided with after the Second World War, going down from Scandinavia to the Black Sea.

Michael Cramer, a member of the European Parliament and founder of the Iron Curtain Trail, visited the area along the river Drava in Croatia and Hungary in the summer of 2012 when he also visited Koprivnica. Mr. Cramer, who has been convinced of the value and the beauty of the river Drava's landscape in our country, is strongly advocating for the greater share of the territory of the Republic of Croatia to be included in the Iron Curtain Trail.
