I live for castles. Everywhere that I travel, my number one priority is to find the hidden gems. This one is very nice and worth visiting.

Dubovac Castle is a wonderful old place with stunning views from the tower. The City of Karlovac is busily restoring the Castle after a misguided attempt to make it into a hotel, with displays that show other Castles in the area and lots of local...More

This is a small castle located on the hill near Karlovac. There is a tower and once you climb it, you'll have a very nice view over the town and surrounding area. And that's pretty much it, nothing more to do (unless you go into...More

Renowated castle offering a nice view on Karlovac. You need about 15-30 minutes to see the castle. Many stairs and it is not accessible for wheelchair. Small restaurant in the ground floor. Free parking.
