Presentation of Ozalj

The Town of Ozalj (7,932 inhabitants in 2001, 1,164 in the village of Ozalj) is situated about 10 km north-west of Karlovac.
The fort of Ozalj has been known since at least the 12th century; in the Middle Ages, it was a significant fortification owned by important families, such as Babonić, Frankopan and Zrinski. Ozalj was the unofficial capital of Croatia as Ban Petar Zrinski was having his seat there. This is also the peak of Ozalj's history, as Petar Zrinski and Frank Krsto Frankopan tried to get liberty for Croatia from the Vienna absolutism and were soon killed in Wiener Neustadt in 1671. A hydroelectric plant was built in Ozalj in 1908, on the last waterfall on river Kupa. From 1992 until 1997 Ozalj had the status of Municipality.
