The Day of the Centre of the World- Ludbreg

Have you ever spread the map of the world to try and find out which town is the nearest to the centre of the world? This is not an April Fools’ joke! The people of Ludbreg have believed since ancient times that the ancient circles of the earth issued from this Croatian town, and that all major European cities were situated around their edges. According to the belief, Ludbreg has its antipode on the opposite side of the planet - a small island called Antipodes in the South Pacific, which is the remnant of the ancient ante-Podravina. In line with that story, every year the citizens of Ludbreg add another tile bearing the name of one of the cities of the world to their main square. The custom was established on the Town Day when the birthday of Ludbreg is celebrated, and when slices of the celebration cake are served to all visitors born on that day, and domestic wine of Podravina is poured directly from the town’s fountain. All who believe themselves to be cosmopolitan, simply must visit the centre of the world.
