Karlovac

Karlovac is situated at the confluence of tour rivers; Kupa, Korana, Mrežnica and Dobra. Here you'll find numerous walking paths and river beaches as well as opportunities for water sports and recreation - rowing, rafting, sportfishing

The City Star

With its ground plan laid out in the form of a six-pointed star set within the moats, this monument is one of the finest examples of Renaissance town planning and defensive architecture. Karlovac later developed into a Baroque town, with a lot of valuable examples of popular baroque creating a unique ambience.

The Promenade

A 2500 meters long promenade running along the moats, with its rows of horse chesnut trees outlining the city's boundaries in the shape of a six-pointed star, being thus the most important reminder of the former city ramparts.

    Hi, the statue of the roman soldier is situated in Tounj, he was put there in 1775 to protect the bridge over Tounčice. In 1836 the bridge got a second deck, it is the only of it“s kind in Croatia.
