The name Gareshnica is indicated by a legend from the 12th century. During the great invasion of the Tatars and Mongols, the inhabitants guarded themselves by lighting fires with guards at elevated places, and they would leave the "gar" (soot). So says the legend, but the facts are somewhat different.
The town of Gareshnica, with this status since 1997, is located in the northeastern part of Moslavina, cut in the shape of a triangle between the eastern slopes of Moslavachka gora.
