About
Dubovac Castle is the oldest Karlovac monument, not just because of its ample history, but also because of the pioneer decision to preserve it in the name of collective memory. To this day the castle on the hill above the Kupa River is the most prominent landmark of the cultural and historical landscape of Karlovac. In the Middle Ages, Dubovac developed as a settlement with a fort at the cross-section of river and road routes, and in an area of dense fortified locations. It was first mentioned in 1339, when it got its first parish priest. Frequently written in Glagolitic script, the testimonies of trade and crafts, legal and school life circumstances of Dubovac burghers-freemen, were most numerous in the several decades preceding 1578, when the Osmanlis devastated its city to the ground. Although not large in area, the Dubovac estate was important economically as a regional market town. Its owners were, among others, important noble families from 1387 to 1810.

It was really cheap like 3€ and for that money that was a great place. Nice cafe on the first floor. On the second floor there is a cool little history room where it explains about that castle and near by history. In the tower there is Knight's armors and some pictures of some rulers of the castle. Up on the tower there is a really nice view. I definitely recommend.

Great view from the top. You can see for miles.
Well renovated with interesting exhibits.
The young woman selling tickets (1.33 euros) was very kind and helpful with very good English. Nice cafe/ restaurant in the courtyard.

Nice castle in a beautiful area, with a good restaurant. There is a ticket office (10 HRK for adults, 5 HRK for children), where YOU SHOULD BUY A TICKET! Nice and clean things are not free, ppl works for that, don't snake in like thieves!

PS.: If you need a new ruler, feel free to contact me, I will be wise and righteous! Sry, we really loved your place:)

We were happy to stumble upon this site. Leaving the highway because of a detour we accidentally passed the sign and turned back. Lovely medievil castle and fantastic work has been done to make it possible for visitors to experience the times. The view from the tower is spectacular and you can see Karlovac on the palm of your hand. Unfortunately, we had to be at a certain location, but otherwise the restaurant looked wonderful and the smells from the kitchen were mouthwatering. Have to check it out at our next visit - which is on the to do list!

Newly renovated old castle is a nice place to visit both as an important historical site and a restful place for a romantic dinner. There is a restoran and a lovely atrium where one can enjoy both the meal and the atmosphere. Restoration of the castle was performer professionally and beside the tower and a floor offering an exhibition of traditional, folk costumes it seems there are other spaces to be open to public. Also, additional info on those artefacts exposed is exepected to be added. Although my visit was during covid19 pandemic I had a nice time visiting it. In the end I bought few souvenirs from the gift shop. Can’t wait to visit it again after this unfortunate pandemic.
