History[edit]

Montenegrins marching out to battle from Ozrinići.

The village was founded by five families of the Ozrinići tribe in 1597.[1] Apart from the Ozrinići descendants, from the 18th century onwards there were families that settled from Banjani, Kriči, Pješivci, and from other regions and tribes.[1]

In March 1942, during the leftist errors of Second World War, Ozrinići were burned down by Partisans from Nikšić.[2]
