Legrad is a municipality in northern Croatia, located north of Koprivnica and east of Ludbreg in the Koprivnica–Križevci County. There are 2,241 inhabitants in the municipality, absolute majority of which are Croats at 97.4%, with the largest minority being Romani at 1% of the municipality. Beside the Roman Catholic majority, there are authentic[clarification needed] Hungarian and Croatian Lutherans that have a tradition beginning in the 16th century.
It is interesting that Legrad got a railway station on the other side of the river Drava in Hungary in the second half of the 19th century and that the name of this train station was Légrád until a few years ago (see: Serbian-Hungarian Baranya-Baja Republic).
It is historically very important that Novi Zrin was near Legrad.
