The middle age town on the edge of the neighbouring region (Primorsko-goranska zupanija), between Moscenicka Draga and Plomin, a place which connects the mountain with the sea. It lies on a cliff at 150 m above sea level and below Sisol (835 m), the southernmost tip of the mountain Ucka. The place is inhabited from the prehistoric age, but the church and its bell tower where built in the middle age. Most of the houses were built in the 17th century, in traditional coastal architecture, which gives it a glance of romance. A beautiful view on the islands in the Kvarner bay is spread out from Brsec.
Brsec is the birth town of Eugen Kumicic, a well-known writer and politician, famous by his alias Jenio Sisolski. His birth house is open for visitations.
Brsec achieves tourism results particularly in renting private holiday accommodations. The number of apartments and holiday houses grows rapidly, and the locals strive to offer quality services to the guests. With the continuing investments in additional features and infrastructure, they achieve higher results, also outside the main season.
