Panorama Petrinja

The town of Petrinja is located on the right bank of the Kupa, at the mouth of Petrinjčica. Over the centuries, its development and survival were influenced by a favourable geographical position. Namely, the town is situated at the intersection of the roads which connect north-western Croatia and Zagreb with Banovina, and further with the neighbouring state of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Thus, the areas of Kordun and Banovina are connected with Posavina.
