Sokolac Castle, Brinje

Sokolac Castle is a castle in Brinje, Croatia. It is named after the Croatian word for hawk, which appears on the town's coat of arms.
It dates back to medieval times, while the town was held by the noble Frankopan and Gorjanski families. The castle was part of an important medieval fortified city held by Frankopan family.
Sokolac Castle was an extremely grand building, dominated by the powerful perpendiculars of the entry tower, and the Chapel of the Holy Trinity. The entry into the burg was through a square, three-storey tower, the façades of which were relieved with lesenes linked at the top with blind arcades, making it a unique specimen in the whole of Central Europe.

  • One old castle and good leg-stretcher. It is still beeing repaired but you can go sight seeing. It is located od small hill si you can observe surrounding area.  more »
  • Good to go with the smaller roads sometimes highway instead, and discovering the hidden attractions of the country. So we found her Sokolac castle ruins. At the foot of the hill can be parked and in five minutes you can walk. Closed on weekends, enough gas, can be viewed only from the outside, but still nice, and the view.
