Ogulin

Ogulin
Ogulin is a town located at the foot of Klek (1182 m), a mountain beauty in a spacious valley which has two beautiful rivers flowing into it - Dobra and Zagorska Mrežnica. In the centre of the town above the abyss of the river Dobra, there is Đulin ponor, the abyss named after the legend of a young girl who threw herself into it because of unrequited love, and there is also a Frankopan castle here that was built in the 16th century. The Ogulin region is highly developed for tourism and has an offer that is typical for mountain destinations, from hiking to hunting and fishing. In terms of the natural beauty, Sabljaci lake, the ski resort Bjelolasica and the hiking Mecca’s of Klek, Bijele and Samarske stijene (a nature reserve) stand out, and Stožac is a favourite destination for mountaineers and nature lovers. When the Karlek tourist train is in function, you will be greeted by people dressed up as the witches of Klek, since according to legend, during storms witches from all over the world gather on Klek.

Pretty town

Pretty town, not too busy. Ogulin is a very small town, it's really nice, very quite and in the evening it comes to life. From Ogulin it takes about 1h30 to go to plitvice via a very scenic road. There's a also a lake south of Ogulin, go there once it's really nice to swim. Lot's of Croatian go swim overthere and there's a restaurant just next to out so you can enjoy Lake view with a drink or eating something there. The area around Ogulin is beautiful and has a long history and many friendly people. Bicycle tours and hiking trips are popular. The area is filled with old castles, deep dark caves, thick forests, a mystery mountain, dim stone cellars. I would go back here!

Beautiful nature and city

The woods, lots of food and wine, and trips to famous Plitvice waterfalls, lake Sabljaci or mountain Bjelolasica were great. I recommend peaceful rest in Hotel Frankopan.
