Delnice the center of Gorski Kotar A- A A+

Delnice has spread quite haphazardly – as the center of Gorski Kotar it occupies the valley of the River Kupa (Brod na Kupi), the highest mountain tops (National park Risnjak), and it includes a known ski resort Petehovac. Delnice, as a tourist destination, also offers numerous facilities in the town itself - hotels, mountain huts, sports arenas, a swimming pool, a skating ring...


Summer and winter alike, Delnice offers the company of excellent hosts and days filled with things to do. It all started with the discovery of the so-called 'invigorating climate' at 700 metres above sea level, so that Delnice (at 698 the highest city in Croatia) offers a unique climate. Good transport connections add to the touristic character of Delnice. 

Accommodation: Hotels, B&Bs, mountain huts, apartments and private rooms.
