coat of arm
The closer look of coat of arms from 1752, which represents aristocracy of Turopolje region. It stands on the front facade, just above the Baroque portal and the entrance to the inner yard of the castle .
Above the entrance, with a Baroque portal and coat of arms from 1752, there is a high tower. Under the tower there was a chapel of St. Lucy, patron Saint of Turopolje region, in which assembly meetings of the Turopolje aristocracy used to be held.
This square-shaped castle, which was recently completely reconstructed, features the inner yard with arcades and four prismal towers on each corner.
The castle is surounded by a ditch and has embrasures. There is a beautiful garden around the castle but now it is in a very poor conditions.
The Baroque Castle Lukavec is situated nine kilometres west of Velika Gorica and it is not easy to be find.
When in the centre of Velika Gorica, you just follow the brown coloured indication to Lukavec, which is situated on the outskirs of the village Donja Lomnica. When in Donja Lomnica you can't miss it.
Crkva Ranjenog Srca Isusovog
Unique features of Turopolje are wooden chapels and aristocratic kurijas - traditional wooden country houses - often reffered to as Turopolje beautis. The area is rich in oak, one of the main natural resources.
Oak is the reason why these wooden sacral and temporal buildings were built.
The chapel of Wonded Chist is situated in the close vicinity of the Zagreb airport and worth of visit as an unique sacral object.
