Let's start with City of Karlovac in general. There are lots of parks, kids playgrounds and of course - rivers.

A big promenade around the river Korana, another one through the city core. Hope these pics will give You a perspective of our beautiful town.
A must-visit is the old castle Dubovac as well as many places to swim on rivers, very close to the apartment. But when You come we also have a guestbook where those sights are detailed for You :)
The old part of town is a few minutes walking from the apartment and can be walked all around the old city core through many amazing parks.
The city of Karlovac is beautiful during any time of the year, but You can be the judge of that :)

Aquatika - The only Freshwater Aquarium in Croatia

Aquatika - fresh water aquarium situated in Karlovac

Nearby is Aquatika - Freshwater Aquarium, which is the only one of its kind in Croatia. Visit it and see for yourself the exceptional wealth of Croatian rivers, lakes, ponds, and swamps in one place! It can almost be seen from the apartment 😊, but it is located across the Korana River and can be reached in 20 minutes on foot or 4 minutes by car.


The old town of Dubovac

The old town of Dubovac is a must-visit because it is also the oldest monument in Karlovac. When you climb the tower there is a beautiful view of the whole city. 

How to get there and about pricing - read it in our Blog


The MUSEUM OF THE HOMELAND WAR KARLOVAC

The MUSEUM OF THE HOMELAND WAR KARLOVAC

The MUSEUM OF THE HOMELAND WAR KARLOVAC - Turanj is located at the very exit from the city, but it is worth a visit. Since the construction of the wooden watchtower Turan in 1582, which had guarded the southern entrances to the Karlovac fort from the Ottoman invaders with a military garrison of frontiersmen, Turanj has been an outpost, the last line of defense of the city of Karlovac.


Plitvice

Plitvi

We don't think there's much to talk about. It takes about an hour and 15 minutes to reach Plitvice, which is a phenomenon in itself. Be sure to visit if you haven't already because it will blow you away. You also have a very nice description on our Instagram @trebamaloodmorit


Đula’s Abyss

Đula’s Abyss situated in the City of Ogulin

In about 45 minutes drive by Highway or 55 minutes drive by the old road, there is a great cultural monument: Đula's Abyss situated in the City of Ogulin
The abyss of the River Dobra got its name from a young girl whose name was Đula or Zulejka. The legend dates from the 16th century. Zulejka was of noble origin and her parents, as was the custom in those times, promised her to an elderly nobleman.


Klek

Klek - The mountain in Ogulin is a great hiking place to go

About an hour and twenty minutes from the apartment is the mountain Klek. Great for a day trip, the very top is a bit demanding to climb, but only slowly and can be climbed.
