The first concrete step was taken in the protection of the Križevci Statutes as an intangible cultural asset, and they received preventive protection and as such were entered in the Register of Cultural Heritage of the Republic of Croatia, reports the City of Križevci. The next step that the City of Križevci plans to take is to apply for the Call of the Ministry of Culture to propose a program of public needs in culture of the Republic of Croatia for 2020, for the program of protection and preservation of intangible cultural assets. The announcement is expected on September 4, 2019. The decision submitted by the Ministry of Culture states that “following the above, it is assumed that the Križevci statutes – wine-pajda rules have the status of cultural property and based on the provision of Article 10 of the Law on Protection and Preservation of Cultural Heritage, a decision on their preventive protection.” Križevci statutes – a set of rules and regulations of behavior in cheerful company with various wine festivities The bearers of this custom are civic families in Križevci, the general public and the population in Križevci and Potkalnički Prigorje, associations and cultural and artistic societies. Source: Krizevacki-statuti.hr Namely, the City of Križevci, in cooperation with the City Museum of Križevci and the Tourist Board of the City of Križevci, reported the Križevci Statutes to the Ministry of Culture with the aim of obtaining protection, ie acquiring the status of protected intangible cultural property. The Križevci statutes are written rules of good behavior at the table, and they were created so that everything would be respected at public festivities, no one would be insulted and there would be no drunks. The statutes of Križevci have been mentioned since the 18th century, and without them real fun and festivities are hard to imagine. Three toasts must be held in every society: for the homeland, for a friend and for the fairer sex. When saying toasts, a “digital” (ornate) way of speaking is nurtured. This gives the Statutes patriotic, sociological and literary value. Customs according to the statutes of Križevci are one of the most important features of the recognizability of the city and its surroundings, and many guests of the city and its surroundings have been fondly remembering these old, good customs for decades. People have always known how to have fun, break the monotony of everyday life in the company of friends and so that everyone will remember. Statutes and occasions in which they are used were created as a kind of counterpoint to the Parliaments held in Križevci and in a sense parody and satirize them.
