The long history of urban life (around 2,500 years) and the extremely favourable position on the confluence of three rivers, (the Sava, the Kupa and the Odra), have made Sisak a very important town in the history of Croatia.

The triangular fortress of the Old Town from the 16th century, well-preserved and turned into the Native Museum, is the main destination of every tourist. The fortress is famous for the victory of the Croats over the Turks in 1593, what was the very first significant defeat of the up-to-then invincible Turkish army on European grounds. The Baroque palace of Mali Kaptol and the classicist ane named (Veliki Kaptol), the brick made Old Bridge or Stari Most over the Kupa, the ethnological park are most frequently visited objects in the town. Sisak has many rich mineral springs, (spa's) with healing properties in the temperature range from (42 to 54 °C).

All rivers, (Kupa, Odra, Sava with their backwaters offer fishing opportunities. There are hunting grounds in the regions of Turopolje and Posavina.
