“The unused castle”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014

Above the city of Karlovac is a beautiful castle from where you can see the whole city. There is also a tower from which the view is much better. The castle is very easy to reach by road and I would recommend to all travelers passing through Karlovac to separate the half an hour for this attraction. The castle was once  hotel but  town has no interest and will to revive these attractions. Unfortunately, the tower is often closed or has a very unusual working hours for sightseeing. Also do not expect that you will refresh with a drink in the beautiful surroundings because the cafe is not working. The castle is worth seeing but unfortunately the city is completely indifferent to its revival.

“Medieval castle”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014 via mobile

Medieval castle on the hill above the valley. Terrific view. It is easy to imagine Ottoman Empire soldiers attacking on the fortress. Unfortunately there is no possibility to get refreshment, but if you are passing through Karlovac don't miss to visit Dubovac

“Unavailable?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2013

The outer walls and the view of Karlovac and its rivers were excellent, but it was quick visit as we were unable to enter the castle the day that we visited. It didn't seem like there were ongoing renovations or any logical reason for this.

“Peace & restfull nook”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2012

Square tower was probably built during the 13 th century. Dubovac was renovated in 1952. in relation to graphics from the end of 18th century. Advantages: green&cosy, excellent viewsite, good for jogging, walking with a dog. Disadvantages: not easy to find the pathway

Достоинства: много зелени, хороший вид на город, подходит для пробежек и прогулок с собачкой. Недостатки: не легко найти тропу
