Stari grad Ozalj (Gradina Ozalj)
|Controlled by||Frankopan and Zrinski noble family|
The Ozalj fortress, located on the stone cliff perched above the Kupa river, is one of the best known fortifications of this type in Croatia. It is a very old stronghold (first mentioned in 1244) which has been converted into a castle. The popularity of this castle is because this was the joint castle of Croatian noble families of Frankopan and Zrinski. In fact, it was the scene of the unlucky Zrinski-Frankopan conspiracy, which significantly marked the history of Croatia. In the castle there is a museum and a library, and it is in a relatively good state of repair.
