Ludbreg’s ‘Center of the World’

For the people of a small Croatian town, the world really does revolve around them. At least, that’s what their town’s nickname as the “Center of the World” will have them believe.

Ludbreg earned its moniker after a 19th-century Swiss doctor who, while playing around with a map, decided to draw concentric circles with the town as its center. His geographical doodling made him realize that several prominent cities happened to fall along the lines he had drawn and were at equal distances from Ludbreg. This discovery led him to declare the Croatian town was, in fact, the center of the world.
