In the area of the Žumberak mountain, in spiritual peace and the unique beauty of the Stojdraga settlement, at 519 m above the sea level, there is the Uskoks Museum of Žumberak, within the Greek Catholic parish of St. George. It was open in April, 2006, on the occasion of Easter and the feast of St. George, in collaboration with the Samobor Museum.
The authentic premises and a rich corpus of objects tells the story of the Žumberak heritage and the history of Uskoks of Žumberak, their identity since the settlement to the Žumberak area 500 years ago and life until today. The museum keeps the memory of the honorable role the Uskok communities played in the defense of the Croatian state, but also of their contribution in the economic, sacral, cultural, political and other areas of social life. The parish hall is used for a new form of pastorals and spiritual revival.
Above the parish hall, there is the Greek-Catholic Parish Church of St. George, a one-nave church with a bell over the front entrance and was built at the beginning of 19th century. The annual feast day is on St. George's day, on April 23 and 29. On the occasion of the millennium anniversary of the coronation of the Croatian king Tomislav, the tall Millennium Cross was erected in 1925. Nearby is the nicely arranged rest stop of the Croatian Auto Club.
