Karlovac is a City named for Archduke of Austria, Charles II.

In German, it means Karlstadt or Carlstadt ("Charles's Town").

The City was built in 1579, including a new city-fortress was a part of the deal between the Protestant nobility of Inner Austria and the archduke Charles II of Austria, in exchange for their religious freedom. The Nobility agreed to finance the building of a new fortress against the Ottoman Empire.

We are now leaving Croatia, and heading back into SLOVENIA, please join me in the virtual car!

      It was quite a shock to us still seeing homes with bullet holes etc. So sad too, as you can see a lot of the people are very poor.

    Interesting little page here. Yes, like Claus I also think that Karlovac is mainly famous for its beer.

    always such a dichotomy; the beautiful scenery and the big tanks!
