Josipdol is located approximately 70 miles (113 kilometers) from Zagreb County, the national capital.
Vacationing in just one place, regardless of its popularity, can only ever give you a glimpse into the broader natural and cultural makeup of a region. So be sure to set aside enough time to savour Croatia's other sights and attractions. Ravna Gora, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the southeast, and Rakovica, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the northwest of Josipdol are worth visiting if you're keen to explore this region further.
About 40 miles (64 kilometers) to the southwest of Josipdol is Rab, a regional center where you can visit Frkanj Beach, Rab Harbor and Lopar Beach. And don't head back to Josipdol until you've investigated Rab's Pudarica Beach and Kampor Beach.
If the weather makes you want to stay indoors, plan a trip to Croatia's palaces, mansions and art galleries. Croatia is a good spot for those with a passion for open-air markets, farms and lighthouses.
