The Frankopan Tower

­The fort built around 1500 by the Frankopan family is now one of the trademarks of Ogulin. The fort is located near the Frankopan Hotel. From the fall of the Modruš fort to the mid 16th century, the fort had been a part of the Croatian Kingdom’s defense system against the Turks. Today, the fort hosts the Heritage Museum with its archeological, ethnographic, mountaineering and alpinist collections.

The Museum contains a memorial room of Ivana Brlić Mažuranić, writer born in Ogulin and the town’s frequent visitor, as well as the only Croatian writer to be nominated for the Nobel Prize on two occasions. Stjepan Galetić’s paintings are also permanent exhibits of the Museum.
