About the Manor
The baroque Mihanović Manor was built in the 18th century by the Erdődy counts. It was later owned by ban Josip Brgljević, brother-in-law of the poet Antun Mihanović. As the author of the Croatian national anthem, “Lijepa naša domovino” (“Our Beautiful Homeland”), often stayed there, the manor was named after him.
The manor is surrounded by a park which is home to a centuries-old plane tree and many animals. In 1983, the renovated building became a Croatian cultural monument, known for organising numerous national and other ceremonies.
Enjoy the Spirit of the Author of the Croatian National Anthem
When Antun Mihanović, a prominent Croatian lawyer who gave his name to our manor, published a poem entitled Horvatska domovina (Croatian Homeland) in the 10th issue of the Danica Literary Magazine on 14 March 1835, he was probably not aware that his words describing anticipations and the role of Croatia would make history as a national anthem.
The poem first became the Croatian national anthem in the late 19th century. Four stanzas of the 14-stanza poem are today the official anthem of independent Croatia. The author and the poem, published in the magazine that marked the Croatian literary revival, thus won immortal glory.
The energy of the words that inseparably connect the Croatian nation and provoke overwhelming emotions can be felt in the cultural centre of Terme Tuhelj, Mihanović Manor, where the great Croatian poem and lawyer used to live. The spirit of the author of the Croatian national anthem is here blended into a unique combination of culture, history, heritage, nature, and modernity.
