Museum of Evolution and Prehistoric Human Habitation "Hušnjakovo"

Krapina Man was a name given to the discovery of Neanderthals in Krapina in 1899. Despite the name, Krapina Man was not the discovery of one Neanderthal “man” but rather a population of over 75 Neanderthals individuals who died between the age of sixteen and twenty four. In total approximately 884 bones were discovered. This discovery was made by geologist, archaeologist and palaeontologist Dragutin Gorjanovic-Kramberger.
