Big, classic novels connected with Žumberak.
Although we can not be say that Žumberak has its own Jane Austen or the Bronte sisters, as some English local regions, something that has defined the whole standard of Croatian literature from small, rural areas, Žumberak is still partially connected with the masterworks of the greatest Croatian writers.
