In the castle you won't see much except the architecture and nice restaurant. The views of the city are great and there is possibility for nice walk in the woods around the castle.

Wonderful city view from the castle. The castle is very well presented from outside. The inside is basic but nice and clean. Definitely a place to visit!

Once again, this castle was great because of the spectacular views. The interior of the castle isn`t that special and no exhibition was set up but it gives you that feeling of old times.

Dubovac Castle is a wonderful old place with stunning views from the tower. The City of Karlovac is busily restoring the Castle after a misguided attempt to make it into a hotel, with displays that show other Castles in the area and lots of local...More

It is a castle (they pronounce "Kashtel" or "Dvo'rets") on a hill. Standing there in front of the castle near a thick tree which looks like at least 400 years old, looking from top at the town below you can easily imagine a feudal lord...More

This is a small castle located on the hill near Karlovac. There is a tower and once you climb it, you'll have a very nice view over the town and surrounding area. And that's pretty much it, nothing more to do (unless you go into...More
