- to promote information on rights, obligations and responsibilities of EU citizen from those citizens wich have already achived some results in the Union
- promotion and development of international cooperation in economical development of Municipality.
Municipality of Stubičke Toplice is located below north slopes of Zagrebačka gora. That is really peaceful and quiet place, with plenty of green hills. Because of short distance to the capital Zagreb (only 35 km), Municipality is well connected with the city and accessible for the passengers from the west. Stubičke Toplice has 2 805 inhabitants and covers an area of 27 km2, and is one of the smallest but most prosperous mumicipalities. Approximately 80% of Municipality area is in Medvednica Nature Park – valued space with rarely preserved, almost untouched nature.
