The ethnographic significance of the traditional rural architecture of Banija are a part of the entire ethnological and cultural heritage of Croatia. The analysis and processing of the fieldwork data from the 1980s show that all forms of life in the rural community and the village as the core of specific microcosm are vanishing or transforming rapidly. Typical rural architectural forms are disappearing quickly due to the use of new building materials, changes in building arrangements, socio-cultural changes and other more or less important factors of modern life. Documenting, filing and systematic analysis are not only preconditions for preventive protection but also an effort to conduct a well-argumented ethnological and cultural analysis of the values that are part of the identity of the entire national heritage.
