History[edit]

The name Pregrada is first mentioned on August 9, 1334 in the statutes of the Zagreb Kaptol. The parish is certainly much older, because it was listed as the oldest one in the Archdiocese of Zagorje.

In the late 19th and early 20th century, Pregrada was a district capital in the Varaždin County of the Kingdom of Croatia-Slavonia.
