How to reach us?

The area of the town of Petrinja is a constituent part of Sisak-Moslavina County and covers the territory of about 380 square km. Surrounding it, there are towns of Sisak and Glina, and the municipalities of Lekenik, Donji Kukuruzari and Dvor. 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.


To the rest of Croatia, Petrinja is connected via two state roads:

D-30 state road is the main connection between Zagreb and Sisak-Moslavina County, as well as between Zagreb and the western part of Bosnia and Herzegovina (road junction Buzin (A3) – Velika Gorica – Petrinja – Hrvatska Kostajnica – the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina state border). For today’s traffic conditions, it is a narrow, slow and dangerous road passing through a number of settlements. However, with the completion of the Zagreb – Sisak A-11 motorway, the access to Petrinja from Zagreb, especially regarding the speed and road safety, will be significantly improved.

D-36 state road is a route connecting Karlovac – Pokupsko – Petrinja – Sisak – Popovača junction (connection to the A-3 motorway). From the aspect of tourism, this road is important since it is the shortest way from Karlovac to PP Lonjsko polje, an increasingly popular destination with the foreign tourists travelling towards the Adriatic coast.

The railway line connecting Zagreb – Sisak is only 13 kilometres away from Petrinja.
