Dubravica got the name after the Dubrava forest, abundant with oak and beech, as well as clean wells and streams. Some visitors come to see the protected eco-reserve of the Čret forest, especially Gmajna forest on Lugarski Breg hill, with the unique habitat of the endemic insect-eating plant - the round-eaved sundew Drosera rotundifolia, also the district's emblem. A larger number of visitors come to the Feast of St. Anne (July 26, the patron saint), with the traditional feast and fair, as well as the Day of the District. Besides the Parish Church of St. Anne in Rozga from 1842, other cultural monuments are the chapel on the local graveyard from 1609 and the 300-year-old parish hall built of wood. There is a hundred-year-old tradition of playing woodwins and brass instruments in the "Rozga" orchestra. A festival of north-western Croatian orchestras is held there in May.
