Karlovac – Sustainable development study of the Stari grad Dubovac castle
A sustainable development study of the cultural attraction Stari grad Dubovac (“old town Dubovac”), a reconstructed renaissance castle, has recently been presented to the public. The study demonstrates the great tourist potential of this cultural and historical monument in Karlovac, whose long-year reconstruction was financed by the Ministry of Culture.

Stari grad Dubovac is located on a hill overlooking the river Kupa, providing a view of the entire town of Karlovac. In the 15th and 16th century, it was owned by the dukes Frankopan and Zrinski.
Stari grad has undergone a statical and constructional reconstruction, and now the interior needs to be revamped. The revitalization of the renaissance castle with some Gothic elements, featuring three round towers and a square defence-tower, is comprehensive and allows for a high level of investment.

The study also provides an answer to the question what and how to plan in the future at this cultural and historical monument.  Apart from the construction of several “accommodation units with hospitality facilities”, it is also possible to create a conference hall for conference and cultural tourism, and a unique playground for children for a “siege of the fortress”. This way, Stari grad Dubovac would become part of the European network of ancient towns and fortresses.

In the Karlovac quarter Dubovac, the tourist workers and public-private investors should, according to the presented study, fix up a brewery museum, walking-paths and theme routes along the Dubovac forest to the near-by river Kupa and the lake Jezerac, foster private investments in the eco-farm Petrovac and elsewhere, and arrange programs along the historical roads Karolina and Luizijana.  An important part in Stari grad Dubovac should be played by cultural and tourism facilities, theatre plays, concerts and festivals.
