The city on the southern hill-side of Bilogora, at the edge of the Lonja-Ilova basin, was a Roman settlement that disappeared in the Middle Ages. Bjelovar was first mentioned in the 15th Century as a fair ground, and in the 17th Century there was only a sentry-belvedere for defense against the Turks. The new city was founded by the decision of Empress Maria Theresa in 1756 as the centre of Krizevci and Durdevac regiment. In the 19th Century Bjelovar became a free royal city. With over 40,000 inhabitants, it is a political, cultural and economic centre of Bjelovar-Bilogora County. It has a high school
