The Lika-Krbava County (Croatian: Ličko-krbavska županija; Hungarian: Lika-Korbava vármegye) was a historic administrative subdivision (županija) of the Kingdom of Croatia-Slavonia. Croatia-Slavonia was an autonomous kingdom within the Lands of the Crown of Saint Stephen (Transleithania), the Hungarian part of the dual Austro-Hungarian Empire. Its territory is presently in south-western Croatia. Lika and Krbava are the names of two valleys in the county (Gospić lies in Lika). The capital of the county was Gospić.



Lika-Krbava county shared borders with the Austrian Kingdom of Dalmatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina and the county of Modruš-Rijeka (also in Croatia-Slavonia). The county has a strip of Adriatic Sea coast. Its area was 6211 km² around 1910.


The territory of the Lika-Krbava County was part of the Kingdom of Croatia when it entered a personal union with the Kingdom of Hungary in 1102, and with it became part of the Habsburg Monarchy in 1526. In 1918 (confirmed by the Treaty of Trianon 1920), the county became part of the newly formed Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes (Yugoslavia). Since 1991, when Croatia became independent from Yugoslavia, the county is part of Croatia.


In 1910, the population of the county was 204,710.
