Short Desciption
Gornja Rijeka is a village under Mt. Kalnik, northwest of Križevci, since ancient times on the border between Varaždin and Križevci Counties between which kept changing hands, but it belonged to Križevci County much longer. Its features are the medieval castles of Mali (Small) Kalnik and not far from it Veliki (Big) Kalnik, the parish church of the Assumption of Mary, and a manor house that is known as the home of the first Croatian opera singer Countess Sidonija Erdödy-Rubido. The villages of Gornja and Donja Rijeka got their names in the nineteenth century after Reka brook. The old name for the village and the landed estate was Mali Kalnik (Kys Kemlek), first mentioned in written sources in 1240.
Between 1650 and 1663 Vladislav Orehoczy the younger built the manor house in Gornja Rijeka on the site of the old curia.
The Kalnik and Križevci region, especially under the south slopes of Kalnik where the estates of Mali Kalnik (Gornja Rijeka) and Veliki Kalnik stretch, is known for a large number of small estates owned by what were called single-holding Kalnik nobles, similar in status to the village nobles in Turopolje, around Zelina and Jastrebarsko. Of small estates in the environs of Gornja Rijeka, which often changed masters because of marriage and when families died out, we must mention Bogačevo, Brežani (D. Fodrovec), Čanjevo, Dubovec, Gregurovec, Gušćerovec, Raven, Sudovec, Špiranec (Miketinec) and others.
People have forgotten about the home of Sidonija Erdödy-Rubido, about the north tower in which she first sang what later became the Croatian national anthem, “Our Lovely Homeland”, accompanied by the composer Josip Runjanin. The reconstruction of the ruined manor house into a restaurant and hotel started in 1995, an attempt to save another culturally, historically and architecturally important Croatian country seat.
