The great Peasant Revolt is one of the most important event in Croatian history of the 16th century. The movement initially achived an extraordinary success and in a few days rebellion affected a large part of Hrvatsko Zagorje, the south - eastern part of lower Styria and the lower part of Dolenjska County and regions south of the Sava to Okić and Jastrebarsko. The revolt expanded into about doezen estates and lasted for twelve days. It ended with legendary battle near Stubičke Toplice on the 9th February 1573. It is impossible to determine the exact number of rebelled serfs, but most historians estimate the number at 12000. The fight for the old rights, human dignity of a small man and the charismatic figure of legendary Matija Gubec inspired many artists. For the 400th anniversary of the Peasant Revolt when the complex in Gornja Stubica was founded, famous Croatian sculptor Antun Augustinčić made a monument to the Peasant Revolt and Matija Gubec.
