A mighty structure

You can see this splendid castle for a long way off in the trees so we parked and started to investigate. Paved paths encircle to castle perfectly maintained.

Castle has a great history, great view of the city beneath the castle, is perfectly maintained, and has a perfect surrounding in the middle of the small park - wood.

Entry fee of 10 HrK, this is an old castle about 20-30 min walk from center of town ( su-su pub). From the top you see the entire view of the karlovac town. However nothing much to see inside the castle. Sometimes, they hold fairs for children where children can play some fun games and rejoice.

If you wanna enjoy the views atop the hill, don't feel tempted to pay the entrance, because it's 4 €/person and the castle is really small, and have NOTHING inside, aside a tower and toilet. Just take a walk around and enjoy the nature!

It was a bit of a hike to the castle from downtown Karlovac, but it was worth it. The view of the city from there was simply beautiful.

Old Castle Dubovac is one of the most beautiful and best preserved feudal architecture pieces in Croatia. If visiting Karlovac, make sure to visit Dubovac and enjoy the view of the whole City and area.

Dubovac castle is very close to Karlovac town. You pay 10 kuna (about 2.50 Australian dollars) to see the museum and climb the tower. I found the photographs of surrounding castles and ruins showing both past and present very fascinating. The tower has lovely views. The restorations are ongoing.
