Karlovac and castles around it - central Croatia

Karlovac developed around the Renaissance-style fortified town in the 16th century, between the Kupa and the Korana rivers. The only remains of the fortifications are moats, while the remains of the former old town include ten-odd nice and regular streets with valuable Baroque structures and the central square. Among the sacral buildings, the most prominent are the early Baroque church of the Holy Trinity with the Franciscan monastery and the national shrine of St. Joseph. Other valuable structures include "Zorin Dom", the Town Museum, the Music School and the very well preserved mediaeval fortification Dubovac, today converted into a hotel.



The attractive position of the town on four rivers (the Kupa, the Korana, the Mreznica and the Dobra) and an extremely favourable location in terms of traffic - on the main road from Zagreb to the Adriatic Coast - facilitate the development of tourism, especially transit. The landscaped park Vrbanicev Perivoj and Marmont Alley of plane trees are protected horticultural monuments, and the peat-bog plant community Banski Moravci, east of the town, is set aside as a special biological reserve.

Very nice. Even the commieblocks look like they belong.

Do you know how many people are there in the actual town? I remember the figure 60,000, but I'm not sure if that's for the city, municipality, or county?

Thank you for posting pictures of Croatian cities! They are so beautiful, even the ones not on the coastline ;)
BTW, How is Vukovar doing, is it still Destroyed or has there been reconstruction?

[Karlovac] - photo thread

Karlovac-photo thread​

grb grada



Evo, ja sam jučer bio u Karlovcu pa sam uslikao nekoliko slika u pauzi. Prvi put sam baš vidio centar grada i mogu reći da je grad doista lijep, ali nažalost, dosta fasada izgleda derutno i trebat će još dosta novaca da se grad uredi, a prava bi šteta bila da se to ne učini jer su stvarno lijepe. Ljudi su jako ljubazni i sve ostalo vezano za grad je čista petica. Pa dakle, evo slika ;)

nakon što smo se parkirali, prošli smo ovim lijepom drvoredom


pogled sa drvoreda na lijevo


na desno je meni najlijepši dio grada, veliki park (karlovačka verzija Zrinjevca;))




još malo parka i koja fasadica ;)


pogled na crkvu svetog trojstva


o ovom sam vam pričao...nažalost ima i ružnih prizora i :( (porušena kuća)


crkva...priznajem, ovu sam maznuo sa wikipedije






...a sada malo do gradskih ulica.....;)

opet sam se vratio prema parku...stare fasade...

kako smo žurili doma, nisam više stigao baš slikati po noći, ali i iskreno ničeg zanimljivog više ni nema....

naravno i ovog ima u Karlovcu heheh :lol:



ova je samo za mene ;)


evo, to bi bilo to...nije nešto posebno, ali eto, tek tako da se dobije neka predodžba. Ako netko ima svojih slika Karlovca, nek ih slobodno stavi, to bi bilo super!


Srdačan pozdrav...DS8 Masonic
