The Koprivnica, Križevci and Đurđevac Districts were formed in 1886.
Today, they represent the main parts of the present Koprivnica-Križevci
County. This area first joined the process of demilitarisation of the Military
Border in the form of the Križevci and Đurđevac Regiment, by connecting
with the Banate of Croatia. This took place in 1873, when the railway connection
Nagy Kanisza – Koprivnica – Zagreb – Rijeka became the principal traffic
connection between Hungary and Rijeka as its only seaport and gateway to
the world. Thanks to this fact, it became a perspective developmental area, extremely
attractive to foreign artisans and tradespeople. Not only agriculture,
but also handicrafts and trade were included; this influenced the change in
the structure of employment and immigration of a large number of foreigners.
Unfortunately, in the period between 1857 and 1890, i.e. at the time when
the Monarchy had been restructured, no statistical lists had been drafted in
the subject area. Therefore, the Address Book of Business and Trade in Croatia of
1891 – publication including the names of artisans and tradespeople, which
was issued on Ban Khuen Héderváry’s order on the occasion of marking the
40th anniversary of the Zagreb Chamber of Trade in 1891 – represents a very
important monograph. The Address Book indicates that despite the fact that
neither urbanisation nor industrialisation had taken root by 1890, the number
of artisans was high – in villages even more so than in district centres. The entire
area was prepared for the process of modernisation and industrialisation,
based on the exploitation of its own raw materials.
