The old town of Ozalj was built on a cliff above the river Kupa. Once upon a time, it was the seat of a powerful Croatian nobleman and the scene of exceptional cultural and historical events. Today's Ozalj builds its identity and tourist promotion on the foundations of valuable cultural and historical heritage and traditional peculiarities of the region.

The city was first mentioned in 1244 as a free royal city. From the end of the 14th century, the town was owned by the Frankopans, from whose hands it passed under the Zrinski family in 1550, which remained its owner until 1671.
To date, Ozalj has taken on a good foundation for the development of tourism, especially of a cultural-historical and excursion character. Thanks to its picturesque surroundings, this area is very suitable for lovers of history, nature and recreation at the famous Kupa beach.
