The Dubovac Castle overlooks the Croatian city Karlovac

The Dubovac Castle overlooks the Croatian city Karlovac. The Dubovac Castle is one of the best preserved and most beautiful monuments of medieval architecture in Croatia. It was built on a prehistoric hill above the Kupa, and was named after the dubs, the oaks growing on the surrounding slopes. It changed hands many times throughout history, changing its appearance according to the needs and fashion of the period. Its current appearance is the result of a comprehensive restoration program carried out during the mid-twentieth century. The collective memory of Karlovac citizens says that the castle water well hides a tunnel leading to the Kupa bank and the Old Town. We would love to ascertain the information, but are afraid it might only be a legend, and that would be an unpleasant blow. So let it be the way it is now. We all love legends and fairy-tales. The enchanted castle courtyard is going to stay enchanted regardless of the historical evidence. Enjoy the medieval atmosphere of the restaurant inside the castle, visit the museum inside the tower, and while climbing the squeaky wooden steps, feel like you’re a part of Karlovac, a part of Dubovac!
