Velika Gorica lies to the south-east of Zagreb, near Zagreb Airport. It is part of the Zagreb metropolitan area.
Highway A11 (Zagreb-Sisak) is planned to become the western bypass of Velika Gorica. State route D31 will be the eastern bypass. It is planned that the bypasses will relieve the traffic along the overcrowded VelikogoriÄka road, the fastest link between Zagreb and Velika Gorica as of now.
Velika Gorica was founded in the year 1278. The whole region of Turopolje has been populated since ancient times. The Roman city of Andautonia was 8 km north-east from the present-day Velika Gorica.
There is a museum of Turopolje, and a few other monuments scattered around the city. The town is home to a monument to the town's deceased defenders from the Croatian War of Independence.
