Statue of Smoligar in Dunjkovec

In past times traditional occupations of Dunjkovec inhabitants were making brooms of birch, knitting baskets (ceker) and selling kindlings. Locals were also known for making trees for kindling (smolige) and as first local artisans. They were called “smoligar” and kindlings were sold all around the region.

Dunjkovec is well known by this tradition and that was enough reason for raising a statue of Smoligar, situated by the branch school of Dunjkovec – Primary school of Nedelišće.
