Krapina is a small town located near Zagreb.  Back in 1899, Croatian paleontologist and archaeologist Dragutin Gorjanovic Kramberger discovered Neandertal artifacts and the fossilized remains of the so-called Krapina man. The excavation site in Krapina was soon listed among the world”s science localities as a rich fossil finding site, where the largest and richest collection of the Neanderthal man had ever been found. Near the site of the excavations, in 2010, a museum dedicated primarily to this important part of the world history was opened. The Krapina Neanderthals Museum with its ambitious exhibition also walks you through the history of planet Earth, from the big bang theory to modern times. The history of the location and the discovery of the Neanderthal findings are displayed in fine detail and in a very visual way with lots of videos, special effects, and interactive exhibits.
