A city of Otočac in the Gacka area is one of the oldest towns with Croatian population. The first written record of the town date back to the end of the 11th century but historians assume that Duke Borna probably had one of his seats in Otočac at the beginning of the 9th century! A town this old you just have to put on your bucket list.
Up until the 18th century, Otočac was situated on a small natural island in the Gacka river. The island was surrounded by fortification walls and towers for protection, so it could be accessed only by boat. This made it invincible and throughout its long history, Otočac was never a conquered town.
Drop by, enjoy the town and make sure to visit amazingly clean Gacka river and try a delicious, one of the kind in the world, Gacka trout.
