Delnice is the largest town in Gorski kotar located at an altitude of 698 m. Delnice is situated along the historic Louisiana road that connected Karlovac and Rijeka.
The first written mention of Delnice from the 15th century is related to the counts of Frankopan under whose rule the Highlands were. Their heirs, the Zrinski family, re-settled Delnice in the early 17th century after Delnice was abandoned due to Ottoman invasions.
Delnice offers many opportunities for an active holiday. There is the Petehovac Mountain Center nearby, where you can enjoy winter sports such as skiing, sledding and snowboarding. At Japlenski vrh, there is the legendary 70-meter ski jump. Numerous hiking and biking trails are also at your disposal.
One of the sights is the church of Sv. John the Baptist from the 19th century. In Supilova Street you will find the oldest house in Delnice - house Rački as well as the electric "Popovic's Mill". The mill worked until 1960, and today is opened for visitors.
