Rasinja is about ten kilometres west of Koprivnica, not far from the Podravina highway which connects the towns of northern Croatia with the valley of the Drava River. It is located halfway between Ludbreg and Koprivnica, on the first slopes of Kalnik's sub-mountainous region where the stream Gliboki enters the valley of Podravina.

Rasinja, with its cultural and historical monuments, records the stratification of its past. In addition to the castle of the ban Inkey family and the parish church of St. Cross, there are also valuable remains of Old Town of Rasinja in the village itself and traces of the Templar town of Opoja on the nearby hill called Budim.
