- Hlebine – centre of the famous naive art school - "The Cradle of Naive Art", the famous gallery recognized by the artists of Naive art. Today, the third generation continues a long tradition of artistic creation. Croatian naive art was not created in the village by accident; it was the natural environment for a common artist. Pictures of Naive art form a unity of man and nature. Naive art is characterized by motifs from everyday rural life, the calm countryside, vibrant colours and the unique painting on glass.

- Podravina - includes the narrow area that gravitates to the towns of Ludbreg, Koprivnica and Djurdjevac, which stretch between the river Drava and the Northern slopes of Bilogora. A holiday in Podravina is a live documentary about nature, the natural heritage with the unique culture of Podravina people and painters of Naive art, as well as its traditional cuisine...

- Koprivnica – the most important town of Podravina, the town with a heart - “The Town of Vegeta”. The geographical position economically determined the development of the town and its surroundings, a variety of social and natural resources offer limitless possibilities in the art, tourism, gastronomy, winemaking...

- Djurdjevac – The Turks damned the people of Djurdjevac, but they proudly bear the name "Picok (Rooster)". The old fort is a gallery space, which preserves the richness of Đurđevac region. The natural phenomenon "Djurdjevacki pijesci", the last remnant of the belt of sands of Podravina, is a specific habitat of distinctive vegetation.

- Molve – a magnificent parish church that dominates the entire area was built on a large sand dune. Not without reason, the name Podravina-Kuwait - a valuable asset that lies beneath its surface has made Molve the richest village in Podravina. The Art Circle Molve made it possible for Molve to become recognizable by its content and style frames.

- Jagnjedovec – a village situated 7 km South-west of Koprivnica in the natural environment near the first slopes of Bilogora. Attractive and healthy because of the rural diet based on vegetables and fruits from their own cultivation (in the permacultural kitchen gardens and orchards with old fruit sorts) and carefully chosen local products. Jagnjedovec offers an ethnographic collection, outdoor activities and small ethnographic workshops that adapt to age and interests.
