Kozara National Park was established in 1967. It is located in a wonderful area which has a lot of sunny days, and a humid continental climate. Visitors can enjoy lush, green and deep forests and meadows filled with flowers. Right in the center of the national park is Mrakovica. This is a memorial area which has museums, a memorial monument and a wall upon which are engraved the names of Yugoslav partisans who died in this area during WWII. The Memorial Monument is to commemorate those killed in war and the local population from this region who were deported to Nazi concentration camps during WWII. The monument is the artistic work of artist Dusan Dzamonja.

Another part of the park is for nature lovers where they can hike and walk and if they wish climb the mountains.
