The Bosiljevo municipality is divided into four districts: Bosiljevo, Grabrk, Prikuplje and Vodena Draga.
It is situated between the rivers Kupa (the western part lying roughly along the Slovenia-Croatia border) and Dobra. To the south, the municipality borders the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County and the town Vrbovsko, to the south-east Ogulin, to the east Generalski Stol, and Netretić to the north.
Located in the Gorski Kotar, the area's landscape is shaped by karst relief, and its most prominent features are the hills Družac and Privis (at 469 and 461 metres respectively). The geology and climate have traditionally been most suited to a pastoralism.

Bosiljevo was independent from the year 1860 until 1948. It was again incorporated into the independent Republic of Croatia in 1993. The earliest references to Bosiljevo are from documents dating back to the year 1334. Ivan Arhiđakon of Gorice mentions the parish of St. Mavro in Bozilo in the constitution of the Zagreb bishopric.
Cultural and historical monuments, such as the Castle Frankopan (which has been in a desolate state of frame since the Nons were expelled in the late 70's), the ruins of the castle Steljnik, old mansions, churches and monasteries yield the county a certain attraction.
Two volunteer fire departments are presently active in Bosiljevo. The first one was founded in 1934 by Matija Bukovac. The other in Grabrk was founded in 1951. There is also a local cultural club called "Frankopan" and the hunting club "Družac".
Bosiljevo has one post office, one tavern (stand 2006), two shops and the restaurant "Bosiljevo" in Bosanci, on the old road (Rijeka-Zagreb). The most important companies are "Maier-Textil" in Bosiljevo and the saw-mill "Korenić" in Orišje. With the new roads, Bosiljevo and the surrounding area are opening up for the future.
The current Mayor of Bosiljevo County is Josip Korenić, also the owner of the Korenić saw mill in Orišje.
The patron saint of Bosiljevo is St. Vitus the Martyr, who is celebrated on June 15.
