HistoryEdit

In the late 19th and early 20th century, Pisarovina was a district capital in the Zagreb County of the Kingdom of Croatia-Slavonia.

There is a legend about the making of Pisarovina. According to this legend, at the place where Pisarovina is today, there was a count's estate, which is a historical fact. Countess Sara lived there, who was seriously ill. There were numerous vineyards around the Count's estate and Sarah probably really liked to drink wine. At that moment her servants, the contractors, offered her wine, and they told her, "Sarah, drink some wine!" (Pij Saro vina) - That's what the legend of the name Pisarovina says.
