Antun Nemčić, Croatian poet and writer from the beginning of 19th century, died in 1849 in Križevci as regular notary of Križevci county. Magnificent ceremony celebrating 50 years from his death was held on October 15, 1899 on which occasion the statue of Nemčić was unveiled, the work of a young sculptor Rudolf Valdec. Numerous singing associations from north-west of Croatia, distinguished gentleman from social, political and cultural life and many citizens of Križevci performed and held speeches in his honour. Many of Croatian important news publishers of that time wrote about this event. Thirteen years later, on January 12, 1913, a humble ceremony was held celebrating hundred years from Nemčić’s birthday, attended only by citizens of Križevci. This time the newspapers in their modest reports didn’t mentioned any distinguished guests or associations, indicating that the glory of Antun Nemčić began to fade away.
