Town of Koprivnica entered an urban era in the second half of 19th century as a small, underdeveloped town, squeezed in between the civil and the military Croatia. However, through enormous efforts of its citizens, Jews in particular (who easily infiltrated into the local population), the town developed well, save for the periods of crises. By the end of the century, there were firm foundations for a modernized urban place. The setting a foundation stone for the town’s new elementary school attracted the viceroy Josip Jelačić himself. Others, like the town’s mayor for many years, Dr Viktor Špišić, also the member of the Parliament attended, as well as the nobility, like Koloman pl. Matačić, who invested a great deal of energy to fight for the town’s new investments, that will improve and change Koprivnica. This is how the town created all needed prerequisites, like economic, educational and social institutions, necessary for further growth and development in the upcoming 20th century.
