Otočac

Otočac on the river Gacka

Otočac was originally a fortress on a small islet in the river Gacka, and thus it was named. Because of this particular position, Otočac was unconquerable and, as the center of the province of Gacka, played a significant role in the defense of Croatian territory during the Ottoman invasions. It was not until the 18th century that the city could extend beyond the city walls.

Otočac was first mentioned in the 11th century on the well-known Baška tablet. The archaeological evidence indicates that Japods lived in this area as early as the late Bronze Age in the 11th century BC.
