Mrkopalj on the map


Snow and Mountain Tourism

Mrkopalj is a mountain town located in the spacious Mrkopalj valley between Bitoraj and Viševica in the central part of Gorski kotar. It is the cradle of Croatian skiing and the famous ski resort Begovo Razdolje is only a few kilometres away. The construction of the unique Croatian biathlon centre Zagmajna has contributed to the popularization of the increasingly popular cross-country skiing. Mrkopalj was first mentioned in the 15th century and the elevation Fortica still holds traces of the old medieval church dating to the 14th- 15th centuries. The White and Pack-Saddle Rocks Strict Nature Reserve is nearby, as well as an over 2000-year-old yew tree. In the summer months traditional berry-picking festival is held and enjoyed by nature lovers.
