Most of the old examples of wooden houses have been preserved in the surroundings of Zagreb, notably in Turopolje or the Zagreb Plain, a fertile area between the Sava and Kupa rivers. Once a marshy plain, Turopolje was overgrown by thick oak woods. In older times the inhabitants of Turopolje built their houses with oak logs which were later replaced by thick boards. Rich inhabitants built large and spacious wooden manors, with six rooms on the first floor, where numerous guests gathered. The oldest preserved manor house is Alapićev Dvor at Vukovina (middle of the 18th century) and the best preserved is the manor house of the Modić-Bedeković family at Lomnica (1806). Worth mentioning is also the manor house at Staro Čiče. However, the manor houses of the Jelačić and Josipović family do not exist anymore. The ground floor of these buildings houses the farm premises, while the first floor is the living area. An interior staircase connects the first floor and the ground floor. All these wooden buildings were made by local masters.
