History[edit]

The 1712–14 census of Lika and Krbava registered 2,058 inhabitants, of whom 2,051 were Serbian Orthodox ("Vlach") and 7 were Catholicized "Turks".[2]

In 1743 Ernst Laudon an Austrian generalisimo built a church to commemorate his children who died and were buried in Bunić and in 1746 he planted an oak forest now called by his name.[3]

The place was heavily damaged in the Second World War by the Chetniks who expelled and erased most Croats, and greatly damaged the church.[4][5]
