“Beautiful 16th century fortress”
Review of the Old Town

Beautifully preserved fortress from the 16th century. Unfortunately, the fort is not completely renovated, but symbolizes a great victory over the Ottoman Empire in 1593. The fort is located at the confluence of the Kupa and Sava rivers.

The Old Town (Stari grad) is the old castle from 16th century. It is famous for its role in the battle against the Turks in 1593 who were defeated here and stopped from going further west. The Kupa river stopped them and most of them drowned attempting to cross the river and storm the castle. The Croats were defending the castle and succedeed. Today this renovated fortress is a museum, open for public, but one must call in advance. There is a great restaurant for having a lunch, and a walking area around. It is very close to the city of Sisak, but one needs some kind of transportation to arrive.
