War torn place between Plitvice & Zagreb Help!

Hi,

I'll be in Croatia next month and i will be driving from Plitvice to Zagreb. A friend of mine went to Zagreb a couple of years ago and said he got the bus between the two and half way through the journey the bus stops and a town that hasn’t been touched since the war? he said there are loads of falling buildings and tanks and fighter jets left and loads of tourists where getting off to visit?

Can anyone tell me where this is? ive tried to google it but can find nothing? is there such a place and what town is it?

Many thanks in advance and if this is not correct, I hope I haven’t offended any locals :)

It is open air museum http://goo.gl/maps/voPIL outside Karlovac.at Turanj http://www.ka-net.net/muzej/eksponati.html

The place was as far as the adversary army managed to advance at country's narrowest point. It is now completely re-built except that small museum section.

Since you are driving,run through the Karlovac itself.Many buildings are left as they were back in a war.Try this route driving or walking, left & right around it. http://goo.gl/maps/2QzUD It goes through the heart of the Old town and through federal army HQ's and barracks.

If you do the loop to Turanj http://goo.gl/maps/fKPei you will pass through Mekušje village with military engineering school.With computers in the early 80's - now it will fit streets of Kabul http://goo.gl/maps/07KPk

Out of all ugly places we had - armed conflict (with casualties) in Croatia started right at at NP Plitvice.

And no worries.Only mega moron will be offended by your question. But after we join EU your initials will be banned.
