Abstracts
Based on the research into the authentic archival materials, all relevant cartographic sources in the reconstruction and development of Đurđevec have been identified for the very first time. Their chronological analysis has enabled a new insight into the history of the settlement and fortress of Đurđevec as well as the specific historical and geographical conditions of their development. The old town of Đurđevec is unique in many ways. Situated near the Drava between much larger mediaeval fortifications of Koprivnica and Virovitica, it had a more important strategic than economic or traffic importance. The river Drava equally protected and flooded it, severed and connected it. Its early fortification concurrently confirms its great significance. The unique polygonal ground-plan of one of the rare preserved low-lying fortifications in the continental Croatia gives evidence of its turbulent past. As the nearest bordering fortress, from the first Turkish overrunning of these parts up to 1699, Đurđevec had stood directly in defence of “the remnants of the remnants” of the Croatian Kingdom. This borderline location of Đurđevec determined its development to the highest degree all up to the second half of the 19th century. Its strategic position in the system of frontier defence has included this fortress into numerous cartographic sources which clearly present the development of the town and fortress of Đurđevec. The predominant military and strategic character of the cartographic sources dating from between 1528 and 1871 clearly illustrates the unique historical and geographical conditions in the development of Đurđevec. By the integration of Đurđevec into the economic and traffic system of civil Croatia, a new era in the development of Đurđevec begins, characterised by the struggle with the limitations of the natural factors in its development and the aspiration after valorisation of its economic potentials. This idea is clearly articulated in the project of its regulation, through which Đurđevec has been promoted to an ideal agrarian centre of the future and a model for all future regulations of settlements with a large under-utilized agrarian potential. This project, though never effectuated, gives a new perspective on the possible development and prospects of Đurđevec.
